A letter to YOU

from the

French & Indian War Foundation         

 “Preserving and Interpreting the Colonial history of Virginia’s Frontier”

YOUR SUPPORT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

.

Dear Member and to all others who want to join,

.

When the French and Indian War Foundation was established in 2002 there was nothing quite like us—and we are still unique. Something else has not changed: Your support has made our work possible, from our beginnings to today.

 .                                                                   

 .

Our mission statement guides us and is at the heart of everything we do at the Foundation. As a member, you understand the value of this mission to educate the public to the importance of this era in our history to the eventual founding of our nation.

.

.

You also know that your support makes the programs we sponsor possible. Unlike other non-profit organizations we receive no local, state or federal funding, nor do we have an endowment on which to draw.

.

That’s why I’m asking you to consider a tax-deductible year-end gift of $25, $50, $150, $250, or whatever amount you might like to consider to ensure that we are able to continue and expand our efforts to satisfy our mission. Your commitment and connection is vital to us.

.

.

Please, take a moment to think of the enriching experiences you’ve found through the Foundation. Then, consider a year-end gift that will ensure we are able to continue to provide those experiences for many more years. I look forward to seeing you at one of our programs during the coming year.

.

Sincerely,

David Grosso

President of the French and Indian War Foundation
