Double Your Impact with a Matching Gift!

Double Your Impact with a Matching Gift!

As you recover from what was hopefully a joyous Thanksgiving celebration and prepare for the start of the holiday shopping season, please take a moment to reflect on what may be one of the most important gifts you can give this year.

Instead of waiting in long lines for a chance to save on the newest gadget, take this opportunity to support the vital work of the Civil War Trust. Your donation will go toward saving all of the battlefields on which we are currently focused, including Second Manassas, Champion Hill, and Appomattox.

That means you can give to future generations the gift of permanently preserving the location of one of Robert E. Lee’s most decisive victories, the site of the Vicksburg Campaign’s largest battle, and the spot where the Civil War essentially ended.

What’s more, any gift between now and Giving Tuesday (November 28th) will have double the impact, thanks to an extremely generous match by one of our donors, up to $10,000. You won’t find a deal better than that in any mall or big-box store and you’ll be helping to preserve some of the most important sites in American history, pieces of hallowed ground where our nation was founded, defended, and defined.

This is the season of giving, and we need your support,

The Civil War Trust
