aka West Haven Veterans Museum and Learning Center   |   West Haven, CT   |  www.whmilmuseum.org

Mission

The mission of the Museum is to honor the men and women who served our state and country during times of conflict and natural disasters, and to collect and preserve artifacts that can help explain to future generations how our fighting men and women lived and survived while serving the nation.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our museum is a 100% volunteer run organization that is responsible for many thousands of military and historical artifacts. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic we have suffered, both financially and from a volunteer standpoint. We are seeking grants and sponsorships any way we can to be able to continue our mission of honoring the service and sacrifices of all our veterans.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By increasing our audience, we will increase revenues, expand education programs and promote interactive programs and special events.

We will continue to reach out to the public through press releases, community relations, Boards of Education, social and civic organizations, etc. by increasing our communication circles, developing programs relevant to the mission of the museum.

The WHVM&LC has a strong base of Board and general members with very specific skills and abilities. We are also in the process of creating an Advisory Board which will address the overall organization structure and growth from the fiscal, managerial, operational aspects.

In the past two years we have recruited volunteers with very specific, well-defined skills that will help us attain those goals. These volunteers have military and/or professional backgrounds in all aspects of development. We have moved from having one major special event per year to several different events per year, extended scheduled tours, a better website, FaceBook exposure, and fostering relationships with military organizations.
