Triple Your Impact

Triple Your Impact

In an 1861 letter to his mother, Union officer Robert Gould Shaw wrote, “It is Christmas morning, and I hope it will be a happy and merry one for you all, though, it looks so stormy for our poor country, one can hardly be in a merry humor.” One hundred and 56 years later, I feel far more sanguine at the approach of the holidays. As the Civil War Trust wraps up its 30th year, I can’t help but be grateful for the support you have given us and continue to give. Everything we have achieved, we have achieved because of members like you.

As the season of giving approaches, I wanted to let you know about a special, limited-time opportunity to give a gift that will benefit Americans of all ages, both now and in the future. Thanks to an extremely generous match made available by  donors, any gift made between now and the end of the year will have triple the impact, up to $125,000!

In sustaining our mission, you not only honor the sacrifices of the men and women who built, defended, and defined our nation at sacred sites such as Cold Harbor and New Market Heights you ensure that men and women for generations to come will be able to learn from some of the best outdoor classrooms in the world.
