What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

100 years ago, 4.7 million Americans served their country in the armed forces during World War I; 116,516 of these men and women perished during the war - more than the men and women lost in the Korean and Vietnam War combined. Despite this, a century later the veterans of World War I still do not have a national memorial dedicated to them in Washington, DC. Working with the US World War I Centennial Commission (the federal agency charged with coordinating centennial commemorations), the US Foundation for the Commemoration of the World Wars will raise funds for and build America's World War I. For more information, please visit www.ww1cc.org/memorial.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Keeping faith with the American Doughboy so that his/her accomplishments in WWI should never again be forgotten. We will build America's National World War I Memorial in Washington, DC where one does not exist.

We have a current (2019) capital campaign underway to raise funds for the construction of the National World War I Memorial in Washington, DC.

We have a Director of Development, and have engaged the services of Changing Our World as fundraising consultants for the purpose of the capital campaign.

We have raised to date $27M and as of fall 2019 have $12M left to go in the capital campaign.
