2020 Trunks of Hope Matching Gift Challenge!
The Florida Holocaust Museum has launched its 6th Annual Trunks of Hope online campaign to ensure teachers and students have the free Holocaust Education tools and resources they need to return to the classroom. Whether that classroom is at school or at home.
Thanks to the generosity of Amy and Michael Southard through their charitable foundation, Crofton Cares, donations made to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to $18,000!
In a world that is full of uncertainty and division, Holocaust education has never been more important. We need to equip the next generation to recognize and reject any form of group-based intolerance or prejudice. We need your help to provide FREE quality resources that educators have come to depend on to fulfill the Holocaust education mandate in Florida. Including:
Dynamic age appropriate Teaching Trunks filled to the brim with books and classroom resources and – new! – digital teaching trunks powered by OverDrive.
Powerful Holocaust Survivor testimony providing first-hand accounts to students making history come alive.
Primary sourced curriculum guides helping educators prepare lessons that can be paired with our Museum virtual tour that now includes 3D images of select artifacts, audio clips and more!
In-depth educational workshops and self-paced online courses to reach teachers who need guidance on how to teach about the Holocaust.
Please make your secure online donation below.
Remember your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $18,000 by Amy and Michael Southard through their charitable foundation, Crofton Cares. Making your gift a recurring gift each month will have even more impact.
This is a moment in history when we need the lessons that Holocaust Survivors have shared with us – lessons of resilience and hope. Thank you for being a part of our #TrunksofHope campaign.
