Fundraising Efforts

In May of 2014 The LMA participated in the Community Give.  This was a day of giving to local charities and encompassed the whole Fredericksburg Region.  The LMA raised $1075.00.  These funds were raised to go towards the Marker Replacement Program.

In June  of 2014 we applied for a grant from The Order of The Southern Cross. Founded originally in 1863 as an organization to provide for the relief of disabled soldiers and the widows and orphans of those who had died in service to the Confederacy, today the Order of the Southern Cross serves as a philanthropic organization whose purpose is the preservation of our Southern heritage and its history. In September we received a grant of $995 to go toward the Marker Replacement Program.  With these funds we will be able to replace 6 more soldiers’ stones.  The LMA is so very appreciative of all of our donors.
