#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, which is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off end of the year charitable giving.

The George C. Marshall Foundation will once again be participating in #GivingTuesday on, November 28, 2017. The Foundation will be upgrading all memberships for current and new members for the next 12 months.

However, if you choose not to become a member, you can still show your support by making a donation. The non-profit, nonpartisan, independent Marshall Foundation is the only institution dedicated to preserving Marshall’s legacy and inspiring future generations to follow his example. Your generous financial support makes it possible for the Marshall Foundation to offer programs and services including:

  • The Marshall Legacy Series interprets General Marshall’s legacy through a multi-year series of events, programs and information centered on key themes, event or episodes in his career.
  • Marshall Museum houses many historic artifacts, including the Nobel Peace Prize, that George C. Marshall received in 1953.
  • Research Library & Archives with one of the most comprehensive collections on the life of a world-famous individual ever assembled, also available to researchers online.
  • The Marshall Foundation Scholars program provides undergraduate students studying history at select institutions an opportunity to undertake research and writing projects using the research library’s rich and vast holdings of primary sources.

Be sure to follow along on Facebook and Twitter, for more information leading up to #GivingTuesday and on Tuesday, November 28 for live results on how we are doing!
