Join the Friends

Friends

We are volunteers, philanthropists and preservationists.

We’re historians, enthusiasts and descendants.

We’re neighbors of the battlefield, and far-away partners from north and south.

We are the membership of the Gettysburg Foundation.

But mostly, we’re Friends. 

The Friends of Gettysburg are the heart of the Gettysburg Foundation. Through our volunteer and fundraising efforts, we help the Foundation and the National Park Service maintain the mission of acquiring and preserving battlefield lands and artifacts, improving the visitor experience and educating visitors on democracy. 

Join us in preserving the battlefield. Join the Friends of Gettysburg.
