Education Program

HMGS, Inc.'s mission is to "promote, aid and assist in the fostering of education of military history" through the hobby of historical gaming.

HMGS believes that educational grants - to support volunteers in miniature wargaming clubs, schools, associations, or other tax exempt organizations - further our mission.

HMGS educational grants have included not only money, but also figures, terrain, etc. that have been donated to HMGS by our members.

For additional information, please contact the HMGS Director for Education.
