You Did It!
Because of the generosity of members like you, we have reached our $15,000 goal for the Civil War Trust Field Trip Fund! The gifts you and countless others have given will be matched by $15,000 from a generous donor, giving us a total of $30,000 available for class field trips to battlefields and historic sites across the country.
Thanks to many of you, 1,500 American youngsters will have the chance to step out of the classroom and onto some of the very land you and I have saved and preserved. You are providing a powerful, in-person educational experience for the next generation of Americans, giving them a unique connection to our nation’s defining moments that cannot be made in the classroom.
Thank you for your generosity and for your commitment to our nation’s future, and the next generation of battlefield preservationists.
