About the Trust for the National Mall
Making the National Mall the best park in the world.
The Trust for the National Mall was founded in 2007 as the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, with the goal and vision of restoring, improving, and preserving America's Front Yard, a public space that evokes the pride and patriotism of our nation. The Trust strongly believes that the National Mall should reflect our country's highest values, and in order to do so successfully, must be maintained to the highest of standards.
Our Trust for the National Mall represents the largest public-private partnership in the history of the National Park Service, charged with the responsibility of bringing the National Mall Plan to life. The plan was approved by the Park Service in 2010, and contains a comprehensive blueprint and detailed action plan to enhance the National Mall's beauty, usefulness, and sustainablity.
Led by Honorary Chair Laura Bush, the Trust for the National Mall will raise $350 million from the nation's leading corporations, foundations, philanthropists, and individuals from all corners of America. With their help - and with YOURS - we will not only fund this necessary effort, but we will build a once-in-a-generation movement to create stewards of the National Mall across the country.
Everybody has a stake in America's Front Yard. It is a place where all Americans, and people from around the globe, can gather to celebrate our freedoms, and the beauty of our nation's capital.
