Sign The Cumberland River Compact

In 1780, 256 of the area’s earliest settlers signed the Cumberland Compact. We are their descendants. Just as our forefathers did more than two centuries ago, we have created a New Compact – the Cumberland River Compact. Add your name and become a part of history by pledging a one-time gift of $5,000 or more, payable over five years.

“Yes, I want to join my friends to protect the future of the Cumberland River Basin. I hereby indicate my intention to join the Cumberland River Compact’s Signers Campaign!”
