Support the Freedom Trail Foundation

The Freedom Trail Foundation is the fifty-year-old non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and market Boston’s Freedom Trail and help with preservation of the 17th, 18th, and 19th century historic sites of the Freedom Trail.

The Freedom Trail Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations for support. The three primary areas of work include: retelling the story of the American Revolution as it began in Boston through costumed guided tours and regular communications and marketing; Freedom Trail Scholars program, an in-school history education program for inner-city and low-performing schools; Freedom Trail Foundation Preservation Fund dedicated to funding capital projects at official Freedom Trail sites.

The Foundation welcomes your support for these and other initiatives. Donations designated for programs of interest to you can be made now or by mail. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Here are EXAMPLES of what your donation can support now:
