donate nowDear Friends of Rosie the Riveter Trust,

There are few people who have captured American hearts and minds as much as legendary Ranger, Betty Reid Soskin!

Rosie The Riveter Trust is producing a broadcast-quality 30-minute film on the life and experiences of Ranger Betty -- To help us reach this goal the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation has offered to match all gifts up to $8,000!

Thanks to the generosity of the East Bay Fund for Artists, and supporters like you, we hope to seize this opportunity to educate and inspire thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. The Rosie the Riveter WWII/ Home Front National Historical Park is the only national park dedicated to telling the stories of the ordinary, extraordinary people who came together during WWII.

Will you help us meet our goal by donating? Your gift of $100, $250, $50 or $500 will help us meet our match and enable us to preserve this and other important legacies of Home Front life!

P.S. We want to preserve this important legacy on film for generations to come and time is running out. Please contribute NOW to help us meet our challenge by July 15th!

  • "War and World War II…did encourage questioning…the domestic circumstances of the war fostered the roots of the civil rights movement and the women's rights movement…Many women who lived through World War II came to want different lives for their daughters."

    — Ranger Betty Reid Soskin

  • "Cause I’m a Rosie’s Girl/in my blossomed world/learning who I am/ while I am a little girl/trying new things/Wouldn’t have known how, I see/that I am more than what you see/when you look at me/…"

    — Rosie’s Girls Song

  • "The iconic Rosie the Riveter image and the phrase ‘We Can Do It’ continues to inspire generations of young women across America. But Rosie is more than an inspirational poster girl. Rosie embodied the women in our country who answered the call to action in World War II by providing the weaponry and ammunition that literally ended the war."

    — CA Rep. Jackie Speier
