Attend Events. Get Involved.

Chapters of the The Joshua Chamberlain Society host various fundraising events throughout the year. In addition, we also periodically host events sponsored by generous donors. These events are an opportunity for you to get involved, give, and meet our heroes.  Check this page periodically for upcoming events!

Are you biking across the country? Are you running a marathon this year? Are you hosting a fundraiser in your area? If you are looking to fund-raise within your community to give back to our nation’s veterans, and their families, then the Joshua Chamberlain Society is the perfect organization for you. If you would like to support a current fundraiser, all of our active campaigns are listed below. If you are interested in starting a new campaign, please contact us at info@chamberlainsociety.org with all of the details.

Show your JCS support with official gear like this special edition JCS Trucker Cap — available online and at events.
