Join our energetic and passionate team at the National Archives Foundation.
As the National Archives’ nonprofit partner, the Foundation generates financial, creative support, and public awareness for exhibitions, public programs, capital projects, strategic partnerships, and educational initiatives. The Foundation advances its mission by inspiring a deeper appreciation of our country’s heritage and encouraging citizen engagement in our democracy by introducing America’s records to people around the U.S. and the world.
The Foundation’s partnership with the National Archives has produced numerous achievements over the years including renovating the Rotunda where the Charters of Freedom are on view, the creation of the Public Vaults permanent exhibition space, DocsTeach.org education resource, and the new David M. Rubenstein Gallery with the “Records of Rights” permanent exhibition.
A visit to the iconic Archives building and its famous Rotunda requires long entrance lines and wait times to enter existing exhibitions and education spaces that were designed in the last century, which impede a memorable and positive visitor experience. The Foundation’s comprehensive Campaign includes a redesign and upgrades to the permanent exhibition space, theater, learning center sections of the building seek to expedite the entrance process, increase visitation capacity, and create a new museum and education experience for visitors grounded in civics and U.S history using modern exhibition strategies and technology. In addition to the physical upgrades to the building, the Foundation is also undertaking:
- ● Support of the Archives’ national civic education program, “Civics for All Of Us”
- ● A national 250th anniversary program of our founding and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 2026.
- ● A national 250th anniversary of our founding and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 2026.
- ● The creation of permanent funds to support on-going exhibition, education, and research projects at the National Archives.
