Welcome to Waterford – Bringing History to Life!

On May 1, the Waterford Foundation is part of the big 2018 GiveChoose “race” with Loudoun’s other worthy nonprofits. Sponsored by the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier, this is the Loudoun community’s one-day online charitable giving event.

As part of this event, the Waterford Foundation has a $2,500 challenge match from our Board and supporters. Every dollar you give, means two dollars toward our $5,000 one-day campaign.

Make your gift here, then follow along on May 1 throughout the 24-hours to see how we are doing. Your gift will help us share Loudoun’s treasured Waterford National Historic Landmark and keep history alive in this beautiful village in Western Loudoun.

Make your gift. Then help spread the word.

Where does your donation go?

Your donation helps with the ongoing preservation of land and buildings — dating back to the village’s founding in 1733 — as well as educational programs such as the Second Street School program, where children role-play as actual students in the 1880 African-American school, the Waterford Craft School which teaches traditional made-by-hand skills and the Waterford Fair, which provides a venue for master artisans and showcases the history and beauty of Waterford.





2018 5K Run Logo

The Waterford Foundation invites you, your friends and family to experience this unique trail run through a quaint, National Historic Landmark village and its surrounding fields and trails.

Find something for everyone, from food to live entertainment and rich history, including a docent-led walking tour through the once-Quaker village.

Waterford is special because it looks almost exactly as it did over 200 years ago, with its open fields and farmland intact. You’ll be running through some of those fields, so you may get muddy … but that is half the fun!  REGISTER
