Founded in 1949 by E.F. Hutton, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and others, Freedoms Foundation is located on 85-acres in the heart of Valley Forge. This national educational non-profit welcomes thousands of people a year to participate in programs to encourage engaged, responsible citizenship based on the Bill of Responsibilities authored by Freedoms Foundation in 1985. With nearly thirty chapters and more than 3,000 volunteers spread across the nation, Freedoms Foundation is filled with people who wish to pass on a legacy of freedom and democracy, which requires active, engaged citizens ready to accept the responsibilities and challenges of self-government.
All citizens should become informed, responsible and active in the social, political, and economic life of our nation. Inspiring and encouraging young people and their educators is essential to ensuring these qualities are passed on to each generation. Using experiential learning as a means to develop critical thinking skills, Freedoms Foundation’s educational programs are an investment in a student that lasts a lifetime.
