Giving Tuesday 11/28/17 - WE DID IT gift matching challenge!

Giving Tuesday 11/28/17 - WE DID IT gift matching challenge!

Our unique Every Kid in a Park curriculum illuminates the history of working people by encouraging kids from all backgrounds to be proud of American contributions, and to understand the importance of working together to overcome great odds. In 2018 we will bring more than 2,000 local fourth-graders to the Visitor Education Center through a fund we are building to provide bus transportation for children from under-served classrooms. On their visit kids will also enjoy outdoor activity on a healthy one-mile hike down the Bay Trail to visit the Rosie the Riveter Memorial. Every child who participates takes home a one-year pass to enjoy all national parks with their families for free!

A group of generous donors has offered to MATCH ALL GIFTS for Giving Tuesday 11/28/17, up to $1,000!

Thanks to supporters like you, we hope to seize this opportunity to educate and inspire thousands of local 4th graders and kids of all ages at 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 $25, $50 or $100 will help us meet our match and enable us to get Every Kid In a Park!

P.S. For most of these students this is their only field trip of the year! Please contribute and help us meet our challenge on November 28!

  • "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

  • "Without us, there would have been no spring in 1945."

    — Rosie the Riveter Memorial

  • "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

  • Rosie Rally Home Front Festival 2018

    Save the Date: August 11, 2018 - Rosie Rally Home Front Festival

    Don’t miss this year’s Rosie Rally Home Front Festival! Once again, on August 11th, we will gather to celebrate the legacy of Rosie the Riveter, an icon for women across the world.

    Join us at this free and family-friendly event for fun, festivities, great food, costume contests, dancing and more!

    This year, instead of breaking the Guinness record, we encourage everyone to update Rosie or represent home front occupations in creative ways, or to come in traditional garb to join the largest Rosie celebration and festival yet! This year’s event will honor original WWII Rosies and home front workers and celebrate the ordinary people from many backgrounds, races and communities across the U.S. who stepped up to extraordinary challenges during WWII.
