N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation

The N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation, a non-profit organization, provides development and support for the museum. It was formed in 1977 as the N.C. Transportation History Corporation, comprised of local business leaders, former railroad employees and local politicians. The Foundation assists with fund-raising for preservation projects and educational programs. N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation efforts that create revenue streams for the museum include the train and turntable rides, special events such as Day Out With Thomas™ and the THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride, the museum membership program, grant writing, and soliciting donations.
