The Extraordinary Give November 17

The Extraordinary Give November 17

Posted on November 1, 2023

We’re excited to be a part of The Extraordinary Give again this year and are asking for your support on Friday, November 17.  Why?  Because you have the power to help us preserve and advance our nation’s railroad heritage during this 24-hour online giving marathon.

Your tax deductible donation to the nonprofit Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, now in our 40th year,  will go a long way to ensure that the important work needed to preserve our historic trains, and to educate today’s and future generations about the rich legacy of railroading, continues.

Thanks to the Lancaster County Community Foundation, presenting sponsors and community sponsors, a stretch pool of more than half a million dollars will be distributed to organizations like the Friends based on their number of unique donors throughout The Extraordinary Give.

Use your smart device or computer, when and where it is convenient for you, to give to the Friends any time from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, November 17.  Mark your calendar, and pass this along to your friends, family and colleagues!  Thank you in advance for your extraordinary giving in support of our world-class collection of trains and American railroad history!
