Final Days of the $3-to-$1 Match

Final Days of the $3-to-$1 Match

We're in the home stretch of 2017 and there's so much to be proud of. This year, we have saved more than 2,000 acres of hallowed battlefield land at 25 battlefields across 10 states. That is remarkable.

In these final days of 2017, I am asking you to make a contribution to the cause before the end of the year. We have an amazing, limited-time opportunity to celebrate the season of giving. Thanks to an extremely generous match made available by our generous donors, any gift made between now and the end of the year will have triple the impact, up to $125,000!

I know this is a busy time of year for you and your family, but as you are planning for the holidays, please keep us in mind. We need your help if we are to save sites such as Slaughter Pen Farm and Cold Harbor in Virginia; Princeton in New Jersey; and Monocacy in Maryland. It was at places like these that hundreds of thousands of young Americans laid down their lives in struggles that defined our nation.

Everything the Civil War Trust has achieved, we have achieved because of members like you. I know we can count on you again to help ensure that sites like those I mentioned (and many more) will be permanently protected from developers.

But our work is far from complete. Which is why I am asking for a final push for preservation as the year comes to a close. With your help, we will enter 2018 with the strength to continue protecting critically important acres of America's history for future generations.

Only a couple more days are left to give a tax-deductible gift in 2017. Your donation will be tripled through midnight on December 31st!
