As a private foundation, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum relies on the vital support of private individuals to achieve its mission of educating students, teachers, scholars, and visitors from around the world about President Wilson, his legacy, and his times. By joining the Presidential Library's League of Friends at whatever level possible, supporters can sustain the programs and exhibits the Presidential Library offers 360 days each year on campus and year-round on the web. Your contributions support educational programming like the "Journey Into History" summer camp, which ignites a passion for history in our younger visitors. Your support also engages adults with institutes for teachers, symposia for scholars, enhancement and preservation of our collections of Wilson and Wilson-related artifacts and documents, development of the Wilson e-Library on-line digital archive, and the Manse and Museum visitor experience, including our new World War I exhibit. Support is particularly crucial now, as we prepare for the upcoming centennials of President Wilson's election and presidency. Our new membership program involves new benefits for members, and we encourage you to review the membership levels and join today.
Your support is important because it allows the WWPL to increase awareness and understanding of the life, principles, and accomplishments of Woodrow Wilson for future generations through the preservation of his birthplace, a museum addressing his life, and a library and archive of Wilson-related artifacts and documents. All of this allows us to carry on President Wilson's message of public service, governmental responsibility, and international engagement. The WWPL is not part of the federal Presidential Library system. Therefore, your support is critical because it helps us present visitors with an engaging and educating experience. Not only is your generous support important, but it is appreciated!
