BRCWRT Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising Committee works under the direction of the President and the Executive Committee to obtain funds to support BRCWRT operations and projects. Fundraising techniques may include direct donations, lotteries, Civil War art and memorabilia sales, and book sales. The primary use of funds raised is to support BRCWRT general operations; however, funds may be raised for specific purposes such as the BRCWRT Scholarship Fund, historical signs, etc., so long as the specific purpose is consistent with the BRCWRT’s stated 501(c)(3) objectives.
