Where do you want yourfamily history preserved-


On Tuesday, May 3, the Center will participate in The Community Give, an event sponsored by the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region. We will join other area nonprofits in celebrating and supporting this 24 hours of giving.

The CRHC Board of Directors has pledged to match every donation, up to a total of $4,000.  This means that for every dollar you give, the Center will receive two dollars! Your donation will support our hiring preservation experts to repair fragile historic documents and photos, in addition to our ongoing mission to safeguard these precious records of our past.

Please help us meet this challenge by donating in one of the following ways:

  1. Donate: between 12 AM and 11:59 PM on May 3.  A donation of $25 or more make us eligible for additional cash prizes, especially if given during one of these times: 12-1 AM; 6-8 AM; 4-5 PM; or 9-11 PM.
  1. Write a check for the amount you’d like to donate, payable to “The Community Foundation” and dated May 3, 2016. Put CRHC on the memo line and bring the check to the Center or to a Union Bank in the Fredericksburg area.
  1. Join us at the Center on May 3 between 10 AM and 4 PM to make an online donation or deliver your check. Refreshments will be served!

Please help our all-volunteer staff continue the important work of preserving our local history, for “a place that loses its history, loses it soul.”

Thank you for your support!
