"This is absolutely the best museum on the
Civil War that I have encountered.
It truly delves into the personal side of the great war."

~ Angel M.

The Giving Spree is Adams County’s annual day of giving. This year, beginning October 23 and through November 7, you may contribute to the Seminary Ridge Museum online through the Community Foundation’s website. A stretch pool will provide an anticipated $100,000 which will be distributed to the participating nonprofits in proportion to the donations they receive.


You may also give by attending the Giving Spree event held on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at Gettysburg Area Middle School from 4 pm until 7 pm. Seminary Ridge Museum staff will be on hand to your questions and explain how your gift will make an impact on the Museum.
