Corporate Council

Leading corporations and associations from across the country have pledged their support by joining the Corporate Council of the Foundation for the National Archives. Corporate Council members provide critical support for the educational activities of the National Archives, enjoyed by more than 1 million visitors each year. With the continuing decline of civic literacy among our nation’s students, the engaging educational initiatives of the National Archives are vital to the future of our democracy.

As members of the Corporate Council, companies and associations receive invitations to high-profile events, special opportunities to entertain executives and clients in the beautiful National Archives Building, and recognition as part of our impressive list of corporate supporters.
