Ways to Give

Thank you for helping us preserve and promote American history!

You can support the non-profit Friends of Washington Crossing Park with a gift of annual support, a gift made as part of the estate planning process or a major gift or endowment.

You can also donate online or discuss additional options with Jennifer Martin, Executive Director of the Friends of Washington Crossing Park, at 215-493-4076.

Sponsor a Sheep

In addition to foraging 8-12 pounds of grass and plants every day, each sheep needs supplies like hay, grain, and supplemental minerals. They also require veterinary care, medications, fresh straw bedding, and the loving attention of the park’s farmstead manager. You can help us defray these costs by sponsoring a sheep.
