The National Mall is one of the most iconic and meaningful places in the world and a reminder of America's complex and storied history.


We steward private support to design and deliver modern and resilient solutions that will transform the visitor experience and preserve the historic legacy of the National Mall. Your contribution to improving the National Mall will enrich the visitor experience for this and future generations. 


The Trust for the National Mall is an official non-profit partner of the National Park Service.


Visitors to the National Mall build American flag with LEGO® bricks

The Trust for the National Mall partnered with LEGO Systems, Inc. for an unforgettable event to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday on the National Mall. Visitors from around the world descended on the Lincoln Memorial plaza to design more than 2,800 plates with red, white, and blue LEGO® bricks, creating a one-of-a-kind mural of the American flag. The event served to educate people about the importance of this park and also featured large scale LEGO replicas of the iconic monument and memorials on the National Mall. Visit the event page for more details and consider making a donation to support our shared national treasure, the National Mall.
