The Trust for the National Mall became an official non-profit partner of the National Park Service, forming the largest public/private partnership in Park Service history.  Our mission is to engage the American public and raise the necessary funds called for in the National Mall Plan to restore the inspirational and iconic National Mall. This effort includes embarking on a national and international campaign to build awareness and widespread support.


The Trust has completed a national design competition for key areas on the National Mall.  The winning designs provide a framework for the Trust to help create a more beautiful, useful and sustainable National Mall, while honoring its historic integrity.    It is now the task of the Trust to fund and build these projects, along with other elements of the National Mall Plan, allowing visitors from across the country and around the world to continue celebrating America’s history, honoring our heroes, exercising their First Amendment rights and immersing themselves in rich educational and recreational opportunities.
