Sotterley Plantation relies on
private donations, membership dues, special event
proceeds, and grants to maintain this one-of-a-kind
historic site. Meeting this undertaking requires an
active community of supporters. Sotterley has been
sustained by past generations and now by our members
who raise money for our maintenance, preservation,
and operation. As a non-profit organization, we
depend on the generosity of our members for this
essential funding. Our members make a difference!
Individual supporters, whose
aggregate giving equals $5,000 and above, will be
given recognition in
The Sotterley Society. All donations are
tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
To preserve Sotterley Plantation's historic
structures and natural environment and use the powerful
stories of our land, lives, and labor to bring American
history to life while serving as a cultural resource.
To foster a better understanding of our world today by
providing a living link to America's complex history and
legacy of slavery.
