This Giving Tuesday, Can We Count on Your Support?

This Giving Tuesday, Can We Count on Your Support?

Gathering for a family feast and shopping for our loved ones is all well and good but the holidays are also an ideal time to focus on our values. If you value American history, I hope you’ll participate in Giving Tuesday and take advantage of matching funds with a lasting gift to save hallowed ground.

At stake this year is some of the most historically significant land at Gettysburg that’s still in private hands 18 acres at Seminary Ridge on the First Day’s Battlefield. We’ve made good progress on this campaign so far, and we are close to the finish line. With your help we can get there by the end of the year. And today we can get there faster because your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

There are two great ways you can double your impact today when you donate online.

Facebook. If you’re on Facebook, today is an ideal day to make a contribution to our fundraiser. Facebook, with PayPal as a partner, has generously pledged to match donations made on Facebook for a total of up to $7 million dollars. Your donations to the Trust through Facebook could be matched up to $250,000, offering a powerful opportunity for our supporters to double their impact.

This is why we’re directing every donation we receive on Facebook for Giving Tuesday to save Seminary Ridge at Gettysburg. After you make your gift, I hope you'll share your good work with your network you may just inspire others to follow your lead!

On our website. If you are not on Facebook, we have another opportunity for you to double your impact when you contribute to save Seminary Ridge on our website, where the spirit of Giving Tuesday is alive and well. A generous donor has agreed to match all donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000, through the end of today.

Wherever you decide to make your gift to save Seminary Ridge at Gettysburg, know that you will have twice the impact towards saving this important hallowed ground. I know there are many good causes you could give to today, but I truly hope you’ll agree that saving our great nation’s history is a top priority. 

Double your impact this Giving Tuesday by donating through Facebook and encouraging your friends to do the same. Not on Facebook? You can still contribute to save Seminary Ridge on our website. Whichever method you choose, your gift will be matched!
