The process of conserving historic flags is not inexpensive, but our goal is to raise the needed funds in smaller increments. With this project, we will make every penny truly count.
The restoration estimate to conserve this flag is now $12,500, and at this time we are looking for 600 donations of $20. And we do want to emphasize that any amount is appreciated, and anything you can afford will go directly toward this flag.
Regarding donations, checks are perfect, and they should be made payable to SCV, noted for the Save Our Flags fund and mailed to Tennessee Division SCV, P.O. Box 782, Lebanon, TN 37088-0782. We also appreciate credit cards and PayPal, and the "Donate" button at the bottom of this page is ready for those.
We’re hoping you can send us $20, and we want you to see this as an investment. When you send your check, please include your email address so that we can keep you updated as to our fundraising progress, as well as the conservation efforts on the flag once the money’s been raised. In plain English, your donation matters a lot, and we want to keep you informed until the flag has been conserved and is once again resting safely in the Tennessee State Museum.
