The Gettysburg Foundation’s mission, in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS), is to enhance the preservation and understanding of the heritage and lasting significance of Gettysburg and its national parks. The Foundation focuses its work primarily on the battle of Gettysburg and its context in the American Civil War, as well as President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Assistance is also given to occasionally support the Eisenhower National Historic Site, President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s residence in the Gettysburg community.
Become a member today to preserve Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site for present and future generations.
