The Spirit of Liberty is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization based in Rancho Santa Fe, California. It was originally formed to raise funds and to assist in the restoration and maintencance of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. After the restoration was completed, and asa result of 9/11, the Foundation’s mission was changed to enhance the meaning and importance of liberty.
In 2005, the Foundation’s name was changed to The Spirit of Liberty Foundation, to reflect its broader mission- enhancing the meaning of Liberty and to support America’s Heroes, our Armed Forces who volunteer to risk their lives to protect the Freedoms and Liberties that Americans enjoy every day, with an emphasis to honor and support Active Duty, Veterans, and their families.
In 2016, the Foundation’s mission was expanded to also create meaningful jobs and incomes, with the introduction of American Warrior Brands.
In 2017, the Foundation appropriately added to its mission to include honoring and supporting First Responders who also risk their lives every day to protect Americans within our borders.
