Mission Statement

The Trust for the National Mall will help restore, revitalize and preserve the National Mall, home to the enduring symbols of our democracy, for present and future generations. We will succeed in this mission by focusing on the following: supporting the National Park Service as it undertakes the National Mall Plan; raising the necessary funds to restore and improve the National Mall as a world-class park; connecting visitors with the National Mall's rich history; developing engaging programs and events that will educate and inspire current and future generations; and funding an endowment to insure the future maintenance and upkeep of the park.

Description

Pierre L’Enfant, the visionary behind Washington, DC’s layout and design, imagined an open space at the heart of the nation’s capital that would serve as a "monument center" - an urban oasis celebrating America’s most important leaders. More than 230 years later, the National Mall is the fulfillment of L’Enfant’s dreamscape. Extending from the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial and from the White House to the Jefferson Memorial, the Mall immortalizes our nation’s heroes and provides a gathering place for the public to honor, enjoy, remember, protest and mourn.
