Largest single cash donation in the Vietnam education center’s 37-year history

The fund has been trying to raise money to build the underground Education Center at the Wall since 2003. With the Lilly donation, the fund said it now has $42.5 million of the $130 million it needs to raise.
The center will be a 25,000-square-foot building displaying thousands of artifacts left at the memorial over the years, first-person accounts of veterans and citizens, and a two-story wall showing the faces of the 58,000 people whose names are etched on the memorial. Washington Post says, "Vietnam education center gets $10 million grant from the Lilly Endowment"
