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.
