As the world comes together in a way that we haven’t seen in over 75 years, the stories and lessons of World War II act as a guiding source to get us through the current challenges we're facing with the Coronavirus pandemic. The core mission of The National WWII Museum has never been more relevant as we share these stories with all generations so that they understand what they mean today.
Even though we closed our doors on March 14, the Museum is fully committed to continuing its work digitally and dramatically expanding our online outreach to students, teachers, and Americans of all ages. However, the financial challenges facing the Museum are significant and impossible to ignore. As an independent nonprofit, the Museum largely relies on admissions sales, Memberships, and other donations to support its operations, and therefore expects to lose millions of dollars during the extended closure.
With that in mind, we are asking for your help. If you are able, please donate to the COVID-19 Response Fund, created by our Chairman of the Board WWII Veteran Paul Hilliard. Every donation is a key investment in the future of The National WWII Museum.
Thanks to all of you who have already engaged in our digital content, made a purchase from our online store, or provided a financial contribution. Your support has played a critical role in helping advance our mission and preserving the legacies of World War II during this critical time.
