Press Release ~ For Every $4 You Donate Today We Will Get $6, November 2023

Updated: Apr 12

#GivingTuesday is just one week away on November 28, 2023!

Because you’re such a wonderful friend to the Moore Family Century Farm, I want to let you in on an “early-bird” match offer. The Tennessee Historical Commission. has generously offered to match every gift!

That means for every $4 you donate we will receive $6. Your special gift will go far to transform the way people across the country understand our shared agricultural history and values by re-examining our story through an African American lens.

In case you missed the news, we’re launching phase two of a historical trail, museum, and education center at the Moore Family Century Farm at the Flatwoods Community in Benton County, Tennessee.

State Representative Bruce Griffey echoes our intention, “…the Moore Family Century Farm is one of the last few remaining historic African American farms in the country. I feel that the preservation of this state treasure and the documentation of the generations of honorable family members that lived and worked there, is of vital importance for the edification of ours and future generations of Tennesseans. I thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration of this worthy project and urge you to approve any needed funding for this historic landmark.”

DONATE TODAY! Make any size tax-exempt donation to develop phase two of this outdoor educational complex to provide jobs and attract tourism dollars in our state. Donation platforms include:

+ Mail check payable to NAPAS (EIN available upon request), PO Box 135, Whites Creek, TN 37189

+ Zelle 731-415-2588

If you have questions or comments, please contact us at 615-364-9075.

This work is being funded in part with funds from the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, and the Tennessee Historical Commission.
