The Army Historical Foundation was established in 1983 as a member-based, charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They seek to educate future Americans to fully appreciate the sacrifices that generations of American soldiers have made to safeguard the freedoms of this nation. Their funding helps to refurbish historical Army buildings, acquire and conserve Army historical art and artifacts, support Army history educational programs, research and publications of historical materials on the American Soldier, and provide support and counsel to private and governmental organizations committed to the same goals.
The U.S. Army designated The Army Historical Foundation as the official fundraiser to finance the construction of the museum and to support Museum programs and future exhibit updates.
Donations made to the Museum’s Foundation are used for the benefit of the National Museum.
