An endowment gift to the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation today provides a brighter picture for the future of battlefield preservation. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here's how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs for battlefield preservation. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple Smiling Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure the SVBF continues to receive support for battlefield preservation after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to the SVBF, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
