Even among conservation and preservation groups, the American Battlefield Trust stands out. What makes us unique?
We are Effective
The American Battlefield Trust has saved more than 50,000 acres of battlefield land in the last 30 years. Since 2001, the Civil War Trust has saved four times more battlefield land than even the National Park Service. See our index of Saved Land »
Through the innovative use of matching grants, we routinely multiply every $1 donated by our members by a factor of three or more — meaning, the power of your donations will be greatly magnified towards saving battlefields.See our list of current preservation opportunities »
We are Accountable
Simply put, we do what we say we are going to do. Compare us to other groups you support; success in our mission is tangible, measurable and verifiable. Judge our success by walking every acre of hallowed ground you help save. Our results will last forever. Read what our donors have to say »
We Are Racing against Developers and the Clock
The American Battlefield Trust doesn’t accept government funds for operating expenses, and because the battlefields are so threatened, we don’t have an endowment to fund — there is no time. All gifts are immediately put to work purchasing and protecting battlefield land.
