The Presidential Memorial to Public Service

The Truman Foundation was established as the living memorial to our 33rd President to inspire and support Americans toward careers as public service leaders.

A beacon that inspires and guides Americans to lead through public service.

"I would much rather be an honorable public servant and be known as such, than to be the richest man in the world."

Leaders Serve

As a living memorial, the Foundation is not a building or monument but is embodied by all Americans who lead through public service, especially our more than 3,000 Truman Scholars.
