STEP 1
Initial Engagement 

When someone inquires about bringing a Charters of Freedom setting to their community, we start by providing them with an informational guide on our organization, the process, and the commitments needed to start.  

STEP 2
Letter of Intent

This is a formal document that signifies the start of a partnership between a community and our organization, set out with the purpose of building a Charters of Freedom setting.

STEP 3
Steering Committee

Every community we work with is required to assemble a steering committee to help move the process along. This crucial step requires the help of community members with a can-do attitude, local knowledge, and connections.

STEP 4
Community Support

Charters of Freedom settings are built without the use of any tax dollars. Because of this, we use community support to spread the word, generate interest, and bring in donations. 

STEP 5
Ground Breaking

After donations have been raised and plans have been approved, our construction team goes to work on the start of what will become a Charters of Freedom setting. The installation is built to last 300-500 years.

STEP 6
Community Awareness

Our team is great at getting the word out for upcoming Charters of Freedom projects, but with the help of local participation, more awareness can be raised about the piece of history coming to the community.

Dedication Ceremony
Ground Breaking

After construction is finished for each setting, a dedication ceremony is set up to officially hand over the Charters of Freedom to the community. These events  are great opportunities to bring people to your community and obtain media coverage.
