Building the WWI Memorial Together

 From the Memorial's conception in 2014, through the international design competition in 2015, through the design selection in 2016, through the three year design refinements and collaboration with the Commission of Fine Arts, the National Capital Planning Commission, the National Park Service and others resulting in the final approval in 2019, through the fundraising of $50 Million, through the construction during a pandemic in 2020, to the opening of the Memorial to the public in 2021 and beyond... The Doughboy Foundation has worked hand-in-glove with the US WWI Centennial Commission to make this dream a reality.

As the project completes and the Centennial Commission sunsets after the main sculpture is installed, the Doughboy Foundation will continue its mission of stewardship for the National WWI Memorial and the remembrance of all those who served and sacrificed in WWI.
