The National WWII Museum's capital expansion is made possible by a $400 million capital initiative—The Road to Victory Capital Campaign.
This major project funds bricks and mortar, exhibit design and fabrication, endowment, and digitization of our collections. To date, we have raised $304.9 million towards our goal through private and public funds.
The Society of the American Spirit
This is a group of generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and other organizations making our capital expansion possible through charitable contributions. Members of the Society receive invitations to all grand openings, private previews of future expansion projects, and access to all Museum exhibits. In addition, the Society receives customized communications ensuring that they are the first to know about all Museum activities and initiatives.
By giving to the Road to Victory Capital Campaign, the Society of the American Spirit ensures that The National WWII Museum will fulfill its mission in telling the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.

To become a member of the Society of the American Spirit, the Museum respectfully requests a gift of $25,000 or more to fund the expansion, support our endowment, or build our online digital archive. To honor our members of the Society of the American Spirit, the Museum will recognize their philanthropy onsite on a gorgeous, permanent donor wall which will be prominently located in the grand entryway of the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion.
