Thank You for Being Part of the Rupp House Story

December 4, 2019

On Dec. 3, 2019, Gettysburg Foundation joined organizations worldwide on GivingTuesday, a global day of giving. The Foundation’s campaign initiative raised funds to help renovate the interactive exhibits at the Rupp House History Center, a museum where young visitors and their families hear stories of civilians and children of Gettysburg.

Your support will help us make the Rupp House experience more interactive and more family friendly and include more of the journey as we introduce a new generation of learners to the stories of Gettysburg.

Thanks to the contributions of so many, and a generous $3,500 matching grant from the Austin Family, the Foundation raised more than $17,622 to RenovateRupp.

Regular updates on the progress will be posted throughout the Rupp House renovation project, anticipated to be completed the spring of 2021.
