Foundation Projects at the Islands

The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 to raise funds for and oversee the historic restorations of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, working in partnership with the National Park Service/U.S. Department of the Interior. In addition to restoring the monuments, the Foundation created a museum in the Statue’s base and the world-class Ellis Island Immigration Museum, The American Immigrant Wall of Honor® and the American Family Immigration History Center®.  Its endowment has funded over 200 projects at the islands.

  

Its recently completed project is one of the most compelling in its history – the creation of the Peopling of America Center® – which expands the Ellis Island Era to include the entire panorama of the American immigration experience from this country’s earliest days, right up to the present. The galleries that explore the pre-Ellis Era from 1550-1890 opened in October 2011. The post-Ellis galleries, covering arrivals from 1954 to the present, opened to the public on May 20, 2015. With the entire story of American immigration now being told, the museum has been renamed the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration.
