Foundation Membership

Members of the Foundation for the National Archives have an opportunity to develop an understanding and awareness of America’s historical records while supporting the innovative educational programming, activities, and exhibitions of the National Archives Experience, including:

  • Critically acclaimed exhibits like "Discovering the Civil War," "School House to White House," and "Eyewitness: American Originals from the National Archives," which premiered in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery in Washington, DC and are currently on nationwide tours;
  • World-class educational programs and daily introductions to the National Archives Experience in the William G. McGowan Theater
  • Annual Genealogy Fair at the National Archives in Washington, DC that provides information and guidance for experienced genealogy professionals and novices alike. The fair is free and open to the public.

Contributions from members of the Foundation fund programs like these and many others, as we fulfill our mission to educate, enrich, and inspire a deeper appreciation of our country’s rich heritage.
