A capital campaign is a concentrated effort on the part of a nonprofit organization to raise funds for specific projects including capital projects (such as the construction of buildings) and the development or expansion of an endowment.
Projects outlined in the Power to Move You campaign will enhance the visitor experience, protect the artifacts in our care, and help the Museum continue to share America’s transportation history for years to come. For more details on the Museum’s plans for the future, please see our capital campaign Master Plan.
