Preserve the legacy of Wisconsin Veterans with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation

The Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)3 tax-exempt charitable corporation chartered by the State of Wisconsin for the sole purpose of assisting the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in raising funds. The Foundation helps the Veterans Museum develop exhibits, implement public educational programs, acquire historical collections, and engage in other activities that further the Museum's mission. A ten-member Board of Directors oversees the Foundation.


Mission Statement

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation provides private fundraising support for the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, ensuring that the Museum continues its record of excellence as the preeminent interpreter of the Wisconsin veteran experience.

WVM Foundation History

Since 1991, the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation has worked in partnership with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum to provide educational opportunities and services designed to tell the stories of Wisconsin's service members and to illuminate the role they played in shaping this nation's history.

Each year the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation provides funds in direct support of the Wisconsin Veterans Museum's exhibits, programs, publications, preservation efforts, and artifact purchases. It is able to do so through tax-deductible donations received from individuals, corporations and businesses; grants from private and corporate foundations; grants from such agencies as the Wisconsin Humanities Council; and individual bequests.
