Virginia History GEMs (Give Every Month)

When you choose to become a Virginia History GEM you will join a unique group of supporters who make monthly gifts to provide a consistent, reliable income stream, allowing the VHS to focus more resources on core-mission programming.

Why should you become a Virginia History GEM?

  • You provide ongoing support to help preserve, share, and celebrate Virginia’s remarkable history.
  • Your regular contributions enable you to make a larger impact then you might have initially thought possible.
  • You spread your donation over the year, providing stable funding for year-round projects.
  • You know what you will give and when, which helps both you and the VHS plan ahead with confidence.
  • You help reduce administrative costs, so more of your gift goes directly to core-mission programs.
  • Your gift is safe, automatic, and effective.
  • You are being environmentally friendly.  You do not receive donation reminders.  You will not receive as many fundraising requests.  And, you will receive one tax receipt in January for the total donation amount received in the preceding year.
  • You will receive special recognition in VHS publications.
  • You will receive a magnetic VHS bumper sticker to proudly display your enthusiast support.

How does the Virginia History GEM program work?

You decide on a gift amount ($5 minimum).  You then authorize your bank or credit card company to send your donation to the VHS each month.  Become a Virginia History GEM today.

What if I want to change or cancel my monthly gift plan?

You are in complete control of your monthly gift plan.  If you decide to cancel or change the amount you give, you can do so at anytime.  Simply call Cathy Boe, VHS Senior Gifts Officer, at (804) 342-9657 and let us know your wishes.
