Donate to keep History Alive!
There are many ways you can support the Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates in providing an interesting and historic experience for children and adults. We rely on our Members, Volunteers, and Donors to keep the Battlefield alive. What we do is on view on the Education, Events, and Tours web pages. Your support makes this work possible- Thank You!
Why I should Donate
In 2009, the Brandywine Battlefield Park was forced to close by the PHMC due to budget cuts. Ten days later, we, the non-profit Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates, staffed and re-opened the park. By contributing, you help preserve an undervalued national treasure and the history it encompasses. Our park not only serves as a national icon, but as a tool for interpreting and educating young students at a time when the appreciation for history is dwindling. By donating, you help keep the dream alive of making history accessible and exciting for visitors from around the world.
