As part of our $382 million capital campaign goal, we are seeking $40 million exclusively for endowment. An endowment of this size will create a foundation to help secure The National WWII Museum’s mission to celebrate the American spirit and to pass on the ideals of teamwork, courage, optimism and sacrifice that fueled the Allied victory to future generations.
The endowment of The National WWII Museum was established in order for the institution to meet current goals and to ensure that resources would be available to meet future needs of our expanding exhibits, infrastructure, and staff. Endowment funds keep our tried and true programs running, while also providing our staff with the means to think creatively and design new initiatives.
Gifts to the endowment can be allocated to the Museum’s unrestricted endowment fund, or to an endowment that funds a particular purpose, program, or initiative, such as education programs or endowed chairs for historians.
For more information on giving to the endowment, please contact Ashley Nash.
