Make Double the Impact with a Gift to the Gettysburg Foundation on #GivingTuesday, Nov. 27, 2018

November 27, 2018

Second segment of the video interview with sculptor Ivan Schwartz

Sitting in front of the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, the Lincoln sculpture has greeted more than 10 million visitors since the Museum and Visitor Center opened in 2008. The sculpture is an iconic figure—welcoming visitors as they pose for pictures and reminding guests how critical preserving our democracy is to the survival of America. 

We are asking you to help us keep Mr. Lincoln looking his best so that he can continue to greet and inspire visitors for the next decade and beyond. In addition to preserving the sculpture, the Gettysburg Foundation will also utilize the funds to enhance historic sites, like the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station, and programs, like Gettysburg Revisited, that springboard from Lincoln’s words, actions and noble vison for America.  

To kickoff this unique initiative, a generous Friend of Gettysburg, Ms. Linda Garrett, is matching every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. So, this #GivingTuesday your gift doubles the impact. 

Thank you for supporting our project and ensuring Gettysburg can continue to educate and inspire present and future generations.
