National Museum of the Marine Corps
Established in 1979 as the Marine Corps Historical Foundation, the MCHF is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Marine Corps history and traditions. We directly support the historical programs of the Marine Corps in ways that might not otherwise be available through appropriated funds. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of former Marines.
In 1999, following the years of research and study, the Foundation's mission was expanded to include the planning and development of the new National Museum of the Marine Corps and Marine Corps Heritage Center. The Museum will forever document and depict the story of American history as seen through the eyes of Marines.
The Directors and staff of the Foundation have implemented the following mission, vision and goals for the continual development of the Marine Corps Heritage Center and completion of the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation shall fulfill its purpose through aggressive fundraising beyond our affinity audience (the family of Marines and those with a special connection to the Marine Corps), reaching out to other parties such as government, philanthropists, educational foundations and others who come to its attention in order to preserve and propagate the history, traditions and culture of the Marine Corps and to educate all Americans in its virtues.
