We're Halfway to Our Goal!
A few days ago, I told you about a remarkable chance to get American students out of the classroom and onto America’s battlefields. Through the Civil War Trust Field Trip Fund, we are able to provide grants to support school trips to visit battlefields. Now, a generous supporter has pledged $15,000 in matching funds to help us sponsor more field trips. This online-only opportunity allows you to double the impact of your donation to the Field Trip Fund as long as you contribute between now and Tuesday, November 29 at 11:59 PM.
As of now we have raised $8,500 of our $15,000 goal just $6,500 to go!
The Field Trip Fund has become immensely popular with teachers across the United States, and we have already sent more than 9,000 students to scores of battlefields and historic sites in 18 states. It’s immensely gratifying to see these young folks walking on the land you and I have preserved.
As word of our Fund spreads, we receive more applications every week from teachers who want to take their students to visit America’s hallowed ground. We do not want to turn them away due to a lack of funds. Please don’t wait. Double your donation now with our limited time matching grant for the Field Trip Fund.
We only have until tomorrow to meet our $15,000 matching goal. Will you help us make the match?
P.S. This $15,000 matching offer ends on November 29 at midnight. Donate now to double your impact.
