Programmatic Support

Each year, the Foundation is proud to support many different programs and initiatives for the National Archives’ varied audiences, including the popular Independence Day celebrations.

Utilizing the William G. McGowan Theater, the Foundation supports a variety of programs, including panel discussions, film programs, and book lectures, all of which are free and open to the public, with many streaming online and available on YouTube for audiences around the world. The Foundation also supports annual events such as screenings of the Academy Award® nominees for documentary feature film, documentary short film, live-action short film, and animated short film; the Charles Guggenheim Tribute Program in partnership with the Charles Guggenheim Center for the Documentary Film; the Women in Leadership Forum; and the McGowan Communications Forum.

For researchers and genealogists, the Foundation works with the Archives to support research fellowships and scholarships, a genealogy fair, research-oriented publications, and the research rooms in National Archives facilities. In addition, the Foundation is proud to support students and teachers through initiatives such as Primarily Teaching, National History Day, and DocsTeach, as well as continuing support of the Boeing Learning Center.
