The Spirit of Liberty Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization based in Rancho Santa Fe, California. It was originally formed to raise funds and assist in the restoration and maintenance of the Statue of Liberty as well as Ellis Island. After the restoration was completed, and as a result of 9/11, the Foundation’s mission was changed to enhance the meaning and importance of Liberty.
In 2005, the Foundation’s name officially changed to become the Spirit of Liberty Foundation to reflect its broader mission – enhancing the meaning of Liberty and supporting 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 on honoring and supporting Active Duty, Veterans and their families.
In 2016, the Foundation’s mission was expanded to also create meaningful jobs and incomes through the introduction of American Warrior Brands.
In 2017, the Foundation appropriately added to its mission honoring and supporting First Responders, who also risk their lives every day to protect Americans within our borders.
