The nonprofit Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation works with the National Park Service to restore and preserve these beloved monuments. Efforts began with the 1980’s centennial restorations of Liberty and Ellis. The Foundation has since created the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration, developed the free 65-million-record Ellis Island Passenger Database, constructed the Statue of Liberty Museum, maintained museum exhibits, and funded hundreds more projects on the islands.
