Volunteers are at the center of what we do – supporting the National Park Service in preserving Gettysburg National Military Park and the Eisenhower National Historic Site, while educating the public about their significance.
We’re calling on you. From office work and event management to guest services and gardening, you and your talents have a place with the Gettysburg Foundation.
You have a passion for service and a commitment to preserving this hallowed ground. We have a need for volunteers like you.

Located in the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, you'll share news of upcoming projects and events, provide membership information, answer questions and serve as an ambassador.
