There are many reasons to give...

Supporting the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust is investing in America's future and ensuring new generations never forget what great sacrifices shaped this country both then and now.


When you give to CVBT, a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, you support our mission to preserve Civil War hallowed ground at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, The Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House. Since we are not state or federally funded, we rely on the generosity of individuals and foundation grants to fund our efforts to rescue historic battlefields from the threat of modern development and create historic greenspace for all generations.

The Central Virginia Battlefields Trust Needs Your Support!

We remain good stewards of the monies entrusted to us by our members and friends. The Board remains all volunteer, no Board member gets paid a cent, and we are serious about putting as much of every dollar contributed to us as is humanly possible into “dirt and grass."


No matter the amount, your donation is critical to our mission. Membership is just the first step. Every day we lose many acres of hallowed ground and every day we face another threat. CVBT needs your financial support and we need it continuously. You are the backbone that allows us to do what we do best - SAVE BATTLEFIELDS.

"I believe that we share a common understanding that these men would have wanted and would have expected their sacrifice and their suffering to be acknowledged, honored, and respected, and I believe too, that we share the conviction that the best way to do this is to save the very ground they sanctified, ground which in the most literal sense is sacred soil, ground whose destruction would dishonor what they did and why they did it, would dishonor both their memory and the meaning of their sacrifice."
