Become a member of the Friends of Vicksburg National Military Park and Campaign today and join the commitment to preserve the tangible reminders of the bravery and perseverance of those that fought at Vicksburg.

All donations to our 501(c)(3) work to help us enhance the Vicksburg National Military Park and promote public appreciation for the history it symbolizes. While the Park's basic operations are funded by the National Park Service, many features and programs that visitors enjoy most are either unfunded or underfunded in its annual budget allocation, including important work maintaining one of the Nation’s largest collections of sculptures, monuments, markers and tablets. The nonprofit, Friends of Vicksburg, works to make up the difference, committed to the Park and the public it is designed to serve.
Our members are our most valuable asset - without them, none of our vital preservation work is possible. As a Friends member, you will receive quarterly newsletters, periodic email updates, advance notice or discounts on programs and invitations to member-only events. Lieutenant level givers and above will receive an annual pass for complimentary entry into the Vicksburg National Military Park, Visitor Center and U.S.S. Cairo Gunboat and Museum.
