The end of the year means a time of gift-giving for many. This past holiday season also marked a time of giving to the National Museum of the United States Army through the Army Historical Foundation’s (AHF’s) Giving Tuesday program. Through Giving Tuesday donations, AHF raised over $40,000 for the National Army Museum project.
“Giving Tuesday was founded as a day to give back to charitable organizations following the days of spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” explained Cameron Lynn, AHF’s Marketing Manager and Programs Outreach Specialist. “It is a way to give back during a time of thanks.”
Lynn continued that there were two generous donors who pledged to match up to $10,000–adding to the over $20,000 raised by many donations coming in throughout the month of November. “Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to remember that any size donation counts. All of the support is helping to make this Museum a reality and moving us toward opening in June.”
