Altria Group

Altria Supports the Trust's Learning Initiative

In 2012 the Altria Group donated $1 million to the Trust aimed at developing digital learning initiatives on the National Mall. Altria’s gift helped fund a comprehensive study for the 21st Century Learning Initiative focused on engaging 8th graders, the largest visitor demographic, and their families in a creative and interactive learning environment.
Altria’s investment in the Trust also helped finance the production of the World War II Memorial mobile app, which tells the story of the Memorial through veterans’ personal stories, an interactive scavenger hunt, and more. The mobile app will be available in time for Veteran’s Day 2013.
In keeping with the scholastic objectives of Altria’s gift, a documentary that takes an exclusive, insider’s look at the National Mall is being produced in conjunction with National Geographic for its "Inside The…" educational programming series.

The World War II Memorial app is the first of its kind developed by the Trust for the National Mall. Plans are under way to use mobile technology in other areas of the park to help tell America’s story in new and engaging ways that complement the majestic monuments that make up the National Mall.

“Initiatives like this will help to educate a whole new generation about the National Mall and what it stands for,” said Bob Vogel, superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks. “We know that young people are interacting with the world in new ways and that the National Park Service needs to keep up if we are to remain relevant. This app will help us do that.”

The World War II Memorial app was made possible in partnership with The Altria Group, the Dr. Scholl Foundation, the Friends of the National WWII Memorial, and the National Park Service. As supporters of the 21st Century Learning Initiative, The Altria Group and the Dr. Scholl Foundation have contributed more than $3 million to the Trust to develop engaging and interactive education experiences both on the National Mall and online.

The Trust for the National Mall is Not Our Friend.



Why we should boycott the Landmark Music Festival, September 25-26, 2015

Because the Trust for the National Mall is not a friend to Free Speech on the National Mall. Two
dangerous precedents are being created with this concert.
1. It is a large profit-making event on the Mall. Fee based ticketed event.
2. It is using the West Potomac Park off the traditional free speech area of the Mall.
This is the space the Trust and the NPS want to hold all future events. This is bad because
it will silence Free Speech by pushing them to the literal side line and bringing large
corporate sponsors front and center.

Who:
National Park Service – Run watch over all of the National Mall
NPS Director, Jon Jarvis
Trust President, Caroline Cunningham (2012 salary $331,000)
Trust for the National Mall – They are the official “fundraising” group for the National  Mall/NPS.

Corporations: Altria-Philip Morris - Executive on Trust Board.
Volkswagen - Large sponsor
Coca Cola - Large Sponsor
Miller Highlife Beer – Landmark Festival Sponsor
C3 Presents – Austin based entertainment production company. In addition to the Landmark Music Festival they also produce Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza Festivals.


What:

This summer the new NPS Director’s Order #21  regarding sponsorship rules revision will be
unveiled. They will be specifically written to benefit ALL the work the Trust does. The public
will have a 30 day comment period in July. With the final draft being presented to Director
Jarvis in October. It is possible between July and October to significantly pressure the
National Park Service.

When: 
Important Dates

May-June 2015 NPS finishes up revision to Director’s Order #21, related to sponsorship
rules in National Parks/National Mall
June-July Smithsonian Folklife Festival, largest event target by the new turf regulations, 72
hour rule. The Folklife Festival is celebrating its 47th year and does have permanent
