FORT MONROE FOUNDATION
Fort Monroe Foundation is a private, 501c3 entity established in 2011 at the request of Virginia’s Governor and the United States Secretary of the Interior. The Foundation helps to expand public awareness, develop audience and secure auxiliary philanthropic support for Fort Monroe. Designated a National Monument and Historic Landmark District, the site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.
You are invited to join a growing number of benefactors across Hampton Roads, Virginia and beyond, who are advancing one of America’s most historically significant sites. Moreover, an unprecedented 3 to 1, $500,000 Challenge Grant from The Cabell Foundation is inspiring new donors to give before December 31, 2021!

FLAGS OVER FREEDOM’S FORTRESS PROGRAM
A fun way to help support the Foundation is to sponsor a flag to fly over Fort Monroe. For almost 200 years, the Army flew a flag on the Fort’s flag bastion. Celebrate the history of Fort Monroe and show your American pride by helping to continue this long-standing tradition.
You can help keep the flag flying with a donation of $300 or more. In recognition of your contribution, you will be notified in writing when your flag will fly over Fort Monroe. Once your flag has been worn or faded, it will be retired and mailed to you with an official letter recognizing the time it flew over Freedom’s Fortress.
