Why Donate?

The National Civil War Museum is a private 501c(3) private nonprofit.

Your tax-deductible contribution is spread across every aspect of the continuing programs, artifact preservation, and upkeep of our exhibits and galleries.

Your contributions support the mission of The National Civil War Museum!

In 2020 as an organization we rose to the challenge of COVID19. Though travel was restricted and closures were the news of the day, the board, staff, and volunteers navigated uncharted territory.

This year we welcomed new artifacts into our collection from unexpected sources, and new members joined our Museum family. We successfully grew our YouTube channel with new and interesting content that you can enjoy at home. We also hosted several well-received virtual events that many of you are still enjoying. And when we needed you the most, you dug deep with generous and meaningful gifts.

There is a long road ahead of us as we meet the challenges of COVID19. We hope that we may continue to count on your loyal and generous support. Most importantly, we hope that you will visit us soon and experience firsthand the story of the American Civil War. We cannot continue our mission without your help. You are the reason we are here.

You can support The National Civil War Museum with a contribution to our annual Preserve Our History Campaign, with an annual membership, corporate sponsorship, placing a memorial brick, or by supporting our Annual Blue & Gray Gala.
