Overview

Self-reported by organization

In 2011, the Fort Monroe Foundation was created by the Fort Monroe Authority to serve as the philanthropic entity to solicit and administrate donations to preserve the property at Fort Monroe and tell the great history of this property. At the request of the Governor of Virginia, the United States Secretary of the Interior committed to explore the feasibility of entering into a partnership agreement with the Fort Monroe Foundation to encourage private philanthropy and projects to benefit the preservation and interpretation of resources within the park.
In public meetings U.S. Senator Mark Warner has expressed that Fort Monroe may be the most significant site in our country for African Americans. In 1960 the Secretary of the Interior identified the property at Fort Monroe as a National Historic Landmark; a significantly rare designation at that time. On November 1, 2011 President Barrack Obama designated approximately 50% of the open space at Fort Monroe as a National Historic Landmark.
Since its humble beginnings the Fort Monroe Foundation has provided the financial support for special events and public spaces at Fort Monroe that allow tens of thousands of visitors to enjoy free military concerts, symphonic performances, and special exhibits in the Casemate Museum.
The Casemate Museum relies upon the Fort Monroe Foundation to provide grants for the addition of new exhibits and other special projects at the museum. Visits to the Casemate Museum are free.
