Donations for the Dallas Area Chapter would help fund scholarships for students and teachers to attend our educational programs. High school students that attend are interested in cultivating a better understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship through thought-provoking activities. Our summer graduate programs focus on character-building and development of responsible citizenship through the study of history and social sciences. Contributions will also help fund community events and award ceremonies.
Donating some of your time by becoming involved in a local Chapter of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge is one way to make your investment pay off. Whether you choose to belong to a local Chapter as a ‘friend of’ or a member, the time you are able to give will prove rewarding by having a deeper connection to your community; by expanding not only the students knowledge and understanding of US history but expanding your own horizons as well; by gaining valuable relationships through networking; and by hearing the satisfaction and gratification each and every student will relay once they return from attending one of the programs available at Valley Forge.
Becoming a member means you will attend at least 50% of the scheduled Chapter meetings (per year); pay minimal annual dues; volunteer your time, as needed, for programs or projects; provide recommendations as to how to bring in new members to the Chapter; explore avenues as to how to raise money for the Chapter to bring students and teachers to the programs held at Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.
Becomimg a “friend of” means you will keep current with what the Chapter is involved in; volunteer your time with at least one program or project (annually); provide recommendations as to how to bring in new friends to the Chapter; explore avenues as to how to raise money for the Chapter to bring students and teachers to the programs held at Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.
Both association levels provide the opportunity for individual Chapter members to be eligible to be recognized as a delegate to attend the yearly Freedoms Foundation National Meeting.
