The American Battlefield Trust
If you have already included the Civil War Trust in your estate plans:The good news is, you don’t need to do anything. The American Battlefield Trust is the same legal entity as the Civil War Trust (and has the same Federal Employer Identification Number), Therefore, if your estate documents designate either the Civil War Trust or Civil War Preservation Trust as the beneficiary, your gift should still reach us just as it would have before we created this new umbrella organization. However, if you update your estate documents in the future, please update the beneficiary to be the American Battlefield Trust and include our Federal Employer Identification Number: 54-1426643.
