1865 Foundation

By the end of the Civil War, nearly one-third of all currency in circulation was counterfeit. As a result, the country's financial stability was in jeopardy. To address this concern, the Secret Service was established in 1865.

The 1865 Foundation’s mission is to provide emergency assistance in the form of scholarships and other financial support to the families of U.S. Secret Service personnel.

Please join us in launching the 1865 Foundation
