November 29 is Giving Tuesday, a global day that celebrates generosity and encourages people to contribute to their favorite nonprofits and charities. Please donate today to the Atomic Heritage Foundation and preserve the Manhattan Project through the first-hand accounts of participants and the top-secret places where they worked.
As one of the thousands of Manhattan Project veterans who were not on the front lines in a terrible war, but otherwise made a major contribution to its end, I am pleased and honored that the Atomic Heritage Foundation has brought public attention to our efforts. –James Forde, laboratory assistant at Columbia University, Manhattan Project veteran
Your donation will make an immediate impact. AHF’s goals for 2017 are to:
- Publish 100 oral history interviews to the “Voices of the Manhattan Project” website. We have a list of more than 60 veterans around the country to interview – all in their 90s. Please help us share their stories.
- Develop four new “Ranger in Your Pocket” interpretive programs on Oak Ridge, Los Alamos, Berkeley, and the Metallurgical Laboratory at the University of Chicago.
- Add 5,000 new profiles to the Manhattan Project Veterans Database. Our database now includes more than 13,000 profiles, including scientific luminaries, military leaders, secretaries, and construction workers.
- Write 25 new articles on Manhattan Project and World War II history for our main website, AtomicHeritage.org, which attracts 90,000 users a month.
