One of the most important needs for a historic site like Rugby is drawing people to experience our village. To help with that, we launched a new marketing fund appeal in April aimed at raising $5,000 to assist us in our marketing endeavors for 2014.

To date, we have raised $3,500. We also have had two dollar-for-dollar matches provided for our efforts, bringing our total of current funds to three times that amount.

With these funds we have guaranteed our ability to accomplish three of the four goals set out for the appeal: getting new brochure printing, event banners for major events, and advertisements in the Tennessee State Vacation Guide and Upper Cumberland Stay and Play magazine.  But we want to do so much more. We need your help.

Please consider donating today to this fund if you have not already. We have until June 1, 2014 to raise our total goal of $5,000. Remember that every dollar you donate is tripled through our matches!

You can donate by mail to:
