Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of the Civil War Trust for several years. I am so glad to be a member, I can't remember the exact date. I donate regularly - actually to every request I receive even if it's a small amount. Through doing this I have become one of the most frequent donors. I may not donate the most money but I do contribute. I do this because I believe I the cause. We must preserve the land for which our ancestors fought & spilled their blood. The Civil War Trust does the best ever to accomplish this task. I have never had to use just my money, they always find additional funds to compliment my donation. If I donate a dollar, it is multiplied by 2 to 10 times. You could never get this kind of return on any other investment. I don't even know for sure if I had any relatives in the war, but I wholeheartedly believe we should save this land. We must teach our history to our children, which by the way, the Trust does also. I can't compliment any one group more. I donate to Church first, but the Civil War Trust gets the rest of my donation dollars.

Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Civil War Trust is a "top-notch" organization. I have been a contributing member since 2002. They show the utmost dedication to preserving our Nation's heritage. The top priority is saving our disappearing Civil War Battlefields for our future generations. They do this with the greatest enthusiasm. They use every opportunity to maximize our donations. Using Federal & State matching funds & pairing with other organizations such as Central VA Battlefields Trust & Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation (which I am also a member), they can reach 3:1 to 10:1 returns on our money. I've never seen a more judicious use our donations. But they also contribute to battlefield interpretation including maps & signage for visitors, teacher instruction for teaching the Civil War to our future generations, protecting land surrounding sites from inappropriate development, & much more. I am proud to be a donor. I have made over 100 donations, try to contribute some amount to each campaign drive in addition to yearly membership donations, & try to increase my donations each year. I contribute to several charitable organizations but Civil War Trust is the best organized & managed giving its members the most "bang for the buck". I am GLAD to see the Trust has earned your highest rating - Civil War Trust well deserves it.
