The George and Barbara Bush Foundation announces the launch of a 50 million dollar fundraising campaign and a year and a half long commemoration of the 41st President.
The foundation announced their centennial campaign has raised nearly 28 million dollars towards four projects.
One is the the Bush Library and Museum’s new building, called “The Pavilion”, which is the home of the Union Pacific 4141 locomotive honoring the president and a retired Marine One helicopter. The grand opening of the new building is next June.
The fundraising campaign will also go towards the foundation’s endowment, upgrading technology and exhibits at the library and museum, and expanding the Bush School’s endowed scholarship and program offerings.
