Ways to Give

Making a Donation

No matter the size, your gift is critical to preserving the legacy of Gettysburg and Adams County. With your help, we can ensure that future generations will have access to the same treasure-trove of stories and artifacts that we preserve at ACHS today. Here are a few ways you can give:

- Cash or checks can be mailed to ACHS at 625 Biglerville Rd., Gettysburg PA 17325. Please write "donation" in the memo line.      

- Donate online to our general operating fund. Your gift will be put to use immediately, where it is most needed.
