About The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation:

Established in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has been a center for history and citizenship. Encouraging national and international audiences to learn from the past through the preservation, restoration, and presentation of eighteenth-century capital of Williamsburg, Colonial Williamsburg is dedicated to cultural and historical authenticity on-site and online through the study, interpretation and teaching of America's founding principles.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is led by President and CEO Mitchell Reiss and governed by a Board of Trustees that includes Fortune 500 CEOs, a Supreme Court Justice, business and civic leaders, philanthropists and scholars.

The Foundation, with an annual budget of more than $220 million employs more than 3,000 employees and volunteers. It is a not-for-profit entity that operates a not-for-profit educational institution and a for-profit enterprise, "the Company."

The Foundation operates three world-class museums whose collections enhance and enrich the guest experience beyond the living history of the Historic Area. Currently, the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg is undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion project to showcase more of the collection and enhance space for programs and events.
