​Historic Smithfield philanthropy is a tangible expression of the love people have for the recognized goals and activities undertaken for the Smithfield-Preston Foundation.  This “love” infuses the involvement of volunteers and donors. 

Philanthropy, certainly, is essential for the completion of the current activities.  It is critical too for the long-term financial sustainability that protects Historic Smithfield for generations to come.  Special events, capital projects, endowment and various reserves are all necessary to financially maintain the wonderful, historic Manor House through the Smithfield-Preston Foundation. 

The Smithfield Preston Foundation was established to provide funding stability for the preservation and interpretation of historic properties.  The Foundation aspires to enlighten our community, especially our children and the generations that follow, by fostering renewed awareness and honest memories of those who built this region and nation, and further to provide a cultural anchor for southwestern Virginia through this historic house.

Contributions to the Smithfield Preston Foundation help to:
reconstruct and preserve additional buildings and sites
expand and enhance interpretive programs and exhibits
provide opportunities for Preston research and the other founders of the area
maintain buildings, grounds, and artifacts
