Learn About Our Organization

Friends of Chatham was created in May 2012 as a membership corporation, organized to receive and maintain funds, exclusively for charitable and non‐profit purposes as specified in Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. The funds raised are for Chatham and the surrounding grounds in Stafford County, Virginia, under the auspices of the National Park Service, specifically the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.

The purpose of Friends of Chatham is to support the preservation of Chatham Manor including various outbuildings, dependencies, and the historic ground which surrounds it, through advocacy, financial support, and increased community involvement, while promoting public awareness and appreciation of its historic legacies primarily by facilitating, sponsoring, and participating in fundraising events relating to the foregoing purposes.
