VW Invests $10M in the National Mall

In May 2013 it was announced that Volkswagen Group of America would be providing the Trust with a gift of $10 million. The donation, which will be granted over a five-year period, is designed to sustain and advance the Trust’s efforts to preserve and protect the National Mall. 

“There are few places that can educate and inspire people like the National Mall,” said Jonathan Browning, former president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America. “Working with the Trust for the National Mall, we’re excited to roll out a program with both national and grassroots initiatives aimed at connecting people from all over to join the cause of preserving and protecting America’s Front Yard.”

Volkswagen’s investment in the National Mall will support the collaborative efforts of the Trust and the National Park Service to move forward on the National Mall Plan.

VW Cleans Up America's Front Yard

Following the 2014 Independence Day celebration on the National Mall, Volkswagen volunteered more than 250 hours of service today to help clean up America's Front Yard.
 
In addition to the employee day of service, Volkswagen also provided a 2014 Touareg Hybrid to support the Trust for the National Mall in its ongoing clean-up and volunteer activities.
 
“Volkswagen made a long-term commitment to help restore and preserve the National Mall, and this is a great way to get our employees, and our vehicles, involved in keeping the national treasure beautiful,” said Michael Horn, president and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America.
