The Korean War Memorial Foundation of Oregon (KWMFO), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is engaged in an important campaign to install a Korean War Memorial Interpretive Center in the Parks and Recreation Building adjacent to the Korean War Memorial in Wilsonville, Oregon. The Interpretive Center will provide visitors with a better understanding of the Korean War (1950-53), its heroes, and the lessons learned. The Interpretive Center will explain why the Korean War is called “the Forgotten War,” what the phrase “Freedom is not free” really means, and why so many Korean War veterans today say that the Korean War was “worth it” in terms of what the Republic of Korea has become today.
The Korean War Interpretive Center will be an important addition to the now widely recognized and appreciated Korean War Memorial in Wilsonville. While KWMFO is taking the lead in this endeavor, we have very active and reliable partners in the Korean War Veterans Association/Oregon Trail Chapter and the City of Wilsonville.
We need $150,000 to install the Interpretive Center. The KWMFO has raised approximately $64,000 towards that goal so far, and we need your help to raise $86,000. Your donation is tax-deductible, and you will receive a donation email from PayPal Giving Fund, GoFundMe's charity partner. We believe that the Interpretive Center will help us educate the next generation of young people about the lessons learned during the war.
