The Society is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization governed by an elected board of eighteen directors. There is one hired employee, an executive director, and a volunteer staff. The Society owns the Calvin Jones House, the collections, and the grounds and is responsible for the museum, archives, and gardens. The museum is open for tours every day but Saturday and Monday. The grounds are available for concerts, weddings, and other events. Newsletters are published during the year. An annual meeting to elect officers and inform members and friends of the Society’s work is held in the fall. Funding comes from Society memberships, donations, an endowment, and support from Wake Forest University and the Town of Wake Forest.
