Wisconsin Veterans Museum 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.
