Matching Gifts

Many employers and companies will match their employees’ contributions, and if your company is one of those, your generosity to the Battle of Franklin Trust could be double or even tripled. It’s an easy process. Request or download a matching gift from your company. Complete and send the form to the Battle of Franklin Trust, 1345 Eastern Flank Circle, Franklin, TN 37064, along with your gift. The Trust will verify the form and return it to your company. Your company will then make a matching gift contribution to The Battle of Franklin Trust – thanks to you!

Planned Gifts

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the mission of Battle of Franklin Trust, establish a personal lasting legacy while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals.  Gifts made from your accumulated assets (cash or historical collections) rather than from your annual income, either during life or at the time of your death can secure this history for future generations. Contact Laurie McPeak, Director of Development, at (615) 786-1864 for specifics in how to incorporate the Trust’s work in to your estate planning.
