Gift and Estate Planning

Your decision to make battlefield preservation part of a lasting mission is easier than you think.


Your commitment ensures that the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation retains its role in the lives of future generations by preserving the hallowed lands of the American Civil War. Your charitable bequest will not only provide a collective commitment to foster and promote preserving battlefields in the Shenandoah Valley, but it will also conserve, in perpetuity, the sacred lands that our forefather's fought so passionately to protect.


Deciding what charitable gift is right for you is just as important as your decision to secure a legacy. Since 2000 it has been the sole mission and duty of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation to preserve, conserve, and interpret the Valley's Civil War story and the lands where these historic battles took place — Securing a position as the most extensively protected, well-preserved and accurately interpreted collection of Civil War sites in the United States. A place of unmatched scenic beauty, the Shenandoah Valley is a place where generations can gather to understand, commemorate, and gather meaning from our nation's heritage.


We cannot complete this important work without people like you who understand the importance of forever protecting these historic lands.
