The festival is a community effort and it only makes sense to say 'thank you' and give back to the non-profit organizations that make Adams County a great place to live work and play.

In addition to supporting activities of the non-profit Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce, other organizations benefiting from the festival include:
  • Gettysburg Fire Department and Southeastern Adams Volunteer Emergency Services, more than $2,000 from visitors who used parking lots;
  • Adams Regional Emergency Medical Services, $500 for ambulance support;
  • Freedom Transit, $1,000 for transportation services;
  • Gettysburg Rocks, an organization that supports Penn State's Four Diamonds Fund, $1,900 for support with music acts;
  • Battlefield FFA, $1,000 for their work during festival clean-up;
  • SCPA Land Sharks youth baseball league, $750 for their work during festival clean-up;
  • Service Dogs for Heroes, $868.68 donated by visitors;
  • Local Boy Scout Troop, $250 for their work during festival clean-up;
  • Rotary Club of Gettysburg, chose to donate their $250 to YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County, for their work in the wine check area; and
