A Modern-Day Challenge
General Washington overcame numerous periods of adversity to reach victory in the Revolutionary War.
In fact, Washington Crossing Historic Park commemorates one of his most difficult but ultimately triumphant moments: the daring crossing of the Delaware River and victory in Trenton.
Today, the coronavirus presents society with a different kind of challenge. For non-profit organizations such as the Friends of Washington Crossing Park, this challenge is significant.
Due to the temporary closure of the park and cancellation of several programs during our busiest season, our primary revenue sources have dried up. These include park tours, public programs, living history workshops, admission to Bowman’s Hill Tower, spring field trips, and our largest annual fundraiser: Washington Crossing Spring Brewfest.
We need your help
In April, the Friends holds its annual membership drive. Your membership can sustain us through this difficult period and help us uphold our mission of preserving and promoting the history that occurred here.
Members enjoy many benefits, including year-round admission for tours and living history events, special program discounts, invitation to members-only events, gift shop discounts, and early access to signature events. All memberships are valid from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021.
Your support as a member of the Friends will ensure we are prepared for the day when the park reopens to the public.
