Will We Let George Washington's Legacy Fade Away?

It's not hard to see how George Washington's example can benefit us today. A myriad of foreign and domestic policy problems, paralyzing party politics, and a frequent want of character in public life are challenges that we collectively face as a nation. But if George Washington is to remain a powerful guide in the 21st century, we must ensure that his life lessons and leadership examples are taught to current and future generations.

Your donations will help us to engage both teachers and students as we educate a growing population. Don't let Washington's legacy fade! Make a donation to our Education Fund today.
