About the Indiana War Memorials Foundation
Established in 2000, the Indiana War Memorials Foundation works in conjunction with the Indiana War Memorials Commission.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides financial support for the museum, memorials, monuments and parks that the Commission manages and operates. Together, we honor the valor, history and sacrifice of Hoosier veterans. The museum collections, memorials, monuments and parks allow us to share the stories of the heroic service men and women so that future generations can learn, honor and be inspired by them.
