Mission

The American Experience Foundation (AEF) develops national programs which foster education about the arts, culture, American democracy and the unique heritage of Washington, DC.

Purpose
AEF, a 501(c) (3) public charity, was created on December 14, 2001 by Destination DC to re-inspire family travel to the nation’s capital following the events of September 11, 2001. The foundation identifies artistic, cultural, historical and educational programs planned in Washington, DC for upcoming years and increases awareness of the arts, culture and heritage of the nation’s capital by communicating the availability of such events and educational opportunities to the general public.

Each year, AEF selects two 8th grade classrooms for a fieldtrip to the nation’s capital, one classroom from an underprivileged area within the United States and another from the DC metropolitan area. Also, the foundation, along with other hospitality organizations, will present the Gregory McCarthy Scholarship to a student at Hospitality High School of Washington, DC.
