Preserving, Protecting, and Promoting the nation's first National Military Park

For over 25 years, the Friends of the Park have been advocates working to preserve, protect, and share the stories of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.  Acknowledged by historians as one of the most important sites commemorating America’s Civil War, Chickamauga and Chattanooga is our country’s oldest and largest National Military Park. In addition to preserving the stories of conflict, the Park preserves the stories of individuals – soldiers, civilians, and slaves – whose actions here helped shape our nation. 



Memorial and Honorary Gifts

We welcome memorial contributions and gifts in honor or friends, associates and loved ones. The donor receives our grateful thanks for a wholly tax deductible donation, and we send appropriate acknowledgment to the honoree or family of the deceased. All gifts are put to good use toward our mission.


Many people make contributions in memory of an ancestor who took part in the Civil War action that, in 1863, hallowed the ground the Park now preserves.

Bequest by Will

 Remembering the Friends of the Park in your will is a far-sighted act of generosity toward an important mission: building new generations of Park lovers who will care for it tomorrow as we do today.


You can use your will or trust to direct a sum of money, percentage of estate, or specific item to Friends of the Park. Whichever you choose, it will not be subject to estate or inheritance tax and will reduce the tax burden or your estate. The value of the bequest you make is deducted when the taxable estate is determined, with no
limit on the deduction available.


Gifts are to be made to the Friends of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Tennessee with a business address at Miller & Martin, PLLC, 1000 Volunteer Building, Chattanooga, TN 37402, Attn: Ansley Moses.


Types of bequests include:


  • A GENERAL BEQUEST, one of the most popular ways to make a charitable gift by will, allows you to leave a specified dollar amount in your will to the Friends of the Park.
  • A SPECIFIC BEQUEST allows you to leave us a specified piece of property or fixed percentage of your estate.
  • A RESIDUARY BEQUEST allows you to leave us the balance or a portion (specified as a percent or dollar amount) of your estate after specific bequests, debts, taxes and expenses are paid.
  • A CONTINGENT BEQUEST provides the Friends the portion of your estate designated for another if that person dies before you. This can ensure that your property will go to the charitable purpose of the Friends of the Park rather than to an unintended beneficiary such as the government.

For your reference, the Friends' tax identification number is 58-1708782. You should work with your attorney to make your bequest but, if you need us to help, we can provide and discuss bequest language with you.


To engage us, please contact our Executive Director by calling our Message Line at (423) 624-6914. We will respond quickly and make sure that we provide an appropriate contact to help you.
