The Gift of History

The Gift of History

Are you searching for a gift for a history lover or preservationist in your life? Give a gift membership and make them a part of the Civil War Trust team that is working hard to save America’s threatened battlefields. When you give a gift membership online, the recipient will join the ranks of our dedicated members, and receive battlefield maps, invitations to special events, and a subscription to Hallowed Ground our quarterly, award-winning history and preservation magazine.

A gift membership is particularly meaningful at this time when people receive many gifts they may only use for a few weeks or months. A gift of history and preservation lasts forever. Your recipient will know that they are helping to save land so future generations can appreciate and experience the story of America.

Giving a gift membership is quick and easy. Membership levels start at just $35, and your gift recipients will receive a personalized eCard from you. Plus, your contribution is tax-deductible.

This year, please consider giving a gift membership in the Civil War Trust and sharing your commitment to protecting our nation’s history.

Through our easy online gift system, you can symbolically “Give an Acre” of endangered battlefield land to a friend, coworker, or loved one. Your recipient will receive your personalized eCard notifying them of land saved in their name. Plus, as the giver, you will be eligible for tax donations on your contribution to the Civil War Trust.

We’ve got an easy way for you to make a difference. When you select the Civil War Trust as your preferred charity on Amazon Smile, a percentage of eligible purchases supports battlefield preservation!

You can help save battlefield land while shopping for apparel and other gifts. Proceeds from the sale of goods in our online store will be used to purchase more of our nation’s hallowed ground.

2018 Calendar

Order the stunning, full-color Civil War Trust wall calendar for 2018. The calendar features beautiful photos highlighting some of the very landscapes that would have been lost to development if they were not preserved by the Trust and its partners. Plus, every purchase helps save additional hallowed battlefield ground.

Give Stock in 2017

A gift of stock could be one of the most advantageous ways of giving this year. With our Stocks & Securities donation model, you have the opportunity to save on taxes by making a gift of financial assets. Your broker can transfer stocks, bonds, and securities directly to the Civil War Trust.

Have you included the Trust in your will?

Everyone who lets us know that they have included the Civil War Trust as a beneficiary of their estate plans in 2017 will receive a beautiful battlefield photograph hand-signed by Jim Lighthizer. Please let us know by December 31 if you have made or updated your estate plans this year to include the Civil War Trust and haven’t already told us.
