The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, a prestigious Virginia grantor, has awarded the Fort Monroe Foundation a $250,000 Challenge toward the site’s priority projects over the next five years.
To secure the Challenge, the Fort Monroe Foundation must raise $1,000,000 in new gifts or pledges or secure increased support from previous donors by next December 2018.
Fort Monroe’s next phase of development of public resources and programs is estimated to require $19,500,000. Among the major projects is the new Visitor and Education Center, along with way-finding signage and plans for the old Post Theater and Old Quarters One restoration.
With significant early support from the federal government, Commonwealth of Virginia, and select private donors, a balance of $13,500,000 is being sought to support these five-year projects and resources for a growing audience.
