Overview

Mission Statement

Established in 1963, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-partisan organization that provides financial support, staffing, and creative resources to ensure that the Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is a vibrant, living memorial to our 35th President.  Our mission is to inspire public service, civic responsibility, civil rights, scientific discovery and creative cultural pursuits by preserving and promoting the legacy of President John F. Kennedy; and to continually engage and inspire new  audiences with his message of peace, optimism and service.


Background Statement

Constructed on a ten-acre site overlooking the Boston Harbor Islands, the Kennedy Library is the only presidential library in New England and one of just thirteen in the United States.  Designed by I.M. Pei, who was selected by Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as a promising young architect, the building was opened to the public in 1979. I.M. Pei has recently said that the JFK Presidential Library remains his "most important work."

Over 200,000 people from around the globe visit the museum each year, and we serve 25,000 students annually through a host of free educational programs that connect the past to the present. Our website – jfklibrary.org – received over 4.5 million visitors in 2014, more than any other presidential library.

The Kennedy Library houses and preserves all of the presidential papers and historical materials of John F. Kennedy and many of his associates. Our free programs for the public include: the Kennedy Library Forums; guided tours and education programs for students; multicultural arts performances for families; naturalization programs for new citizens; and an online digital archive where users can access the Library’s historical treasures. Our annual John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award honors public servants who place the common good above personal or political gain.

As we look to expand President Kennedy’s legacy and secure the future of his presidential library, it is notable that President Kennedy continues to capture the imagination of people around the world. Eighty percent of Americans today have no living memory of President Kennedy, and yet he consistently remains the most popular modern president in polls each year. This presents us with an enormous opportunity to reach out to new audiences and share the lessons of the Kennedy presidency that are still so relevant today.


Impact Statement

The JFK Library Foundation has successfully launched several new programs and initiatives aimed at transforming the institution for the future. They include:

· The successful completion of our first major Museum renovation in over 20 years, introducing new technology, interactive exhibits, enhanced sound, and large video screens to make the Museum – and the Kennedy legacy – more vivid and accessible, particularly for young people. A Boston public high school student described the newly renovated Museum as having “a bright atmosphere with a very patriotic tone… The way visiting a museum like this one is different than anything else is that the history comes alive. It plays to all of your senses.”

· Increasing our reach through online programming, including a new “JFK Challenge” app that teaches children about the Space Race and the Peace Corps; broadcasting all Forum programs live and on demand; and launching a new Twitter feed, @JFKsaid, that offers a daily quote from JFK with relevance to current events.

· Hosting our first international symposium in Tokyo, Japan, with keynote speeches by former President Bill Clinton and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The symposium was filmed by NHK television which subsequently aired a 100-minute documentary that reached 3 million viewers in over 130 countries.

In 2017, individuals around the world will celebrate the Centennial of President Kennedy’s birth, and the JFK Presidential Library and Museum will be the center of those activities. To maximize our impact, we are planning national and international programming, as well as a special permanent exhibit here at the Kennedy Library – the Legacy Gallery – that will highlight the world events that were set in motion through President Kennedy’s actions and ideals.

The JFK Centennial is a one-time and irreplaceable opportunity to garner support for his library, to focus worldwide attention on his legacy, and to inspire younger generations to carry on his ideals.


Needs Statement

1.       Provide Free Educational Programming for Low-Income Youth, including guided field trips, public speaking and budget simulation programs, workshops and seminars for teachers, and a free bus program for Boston public school students. 

 

2.       Implement Strategic Plan, approved by the Board of Directors in April 2013.  Priorities include:

Goal 1:  Use President Kennedy’s record and ideas as a platform for inspiring public service, civic engagement, civil discourse, civil rights, scientific discovery, and creative cultural pursuits, all with relevance to contemporary challenges. 

Goal 2: Expand the audience of the JFK Library and Museum by connecting with individuals with no living memory of President Kennedy, in addition to those who do; encouraging both audiences to become co-creators of content contributing to the Kennedy legacy; using state-of-the-art technology to engage global, national, and local audiences; and updating the Museum experience. 

Goal 3: Ensure that the Foundation has the human capital and financial resources it needs to achieve the goals and objectives of this plan.

Awards

The John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award is the nation’s most prestigious honor for public servants. The Award was created in 1989 by members of President Kennedy’s family to honor the President and to recognize and celebrate the quality of political courage that he admired most.  The annual Profile in Courage Award seeks to make Americans aware of the courageous acts of their public servants, and to encourage elected officials to choose the public interest over partisanship – to do what is right, rather than what is expedient.  

 

The Library also acknowledges and encourages the contributions of young people through our Profile in Courage Essay Contest and the New Frontier Award.  The New Frontier Awards are presented annually to exceptional young Americans under the age of 40 whose contributions in elective office, community service or advocacy demonstrate the impact and value of public service in the spirit of John F. Kennedy.

Education

The Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum serves more than 20,000 students each year –free of charge –with award-winning educational programming that fosters leadership skills such as public speaking, constructive debate, and critical thinking, and also makes young people aware of the lasting impact of President Kennedy’s term in office – a legacy that includes The Peace Corps, the United States Space Program, and the fight for Civil Rights.

 

Outreach efforts targeted to the Boston Public Schools include:

·        A dedicated School and Community Outreach Coordinator who works to ensure robust participation from urban students and to reduce barriers to access.

·        Free bus transportation for BPS classes to visit the museum, and reserved registration slots for BPS in all our programs.

·        Professional development for 3rd-12th grade teachers.

·        Free classroom and museum guides, on-line curricula, and the New Frontiers newsletter, offering exciting approaches to teaching social studies, history, and civics.

We look to the following indicators, as measured by participation and feedback on written evaluations:

increased awareness of our free resources for public school students; enjoyment and satisfaction with on-site activities; incorporation of new knowledge into school activities; access of online resources; number of first-time visitors; number of return visits.

Examples of Program Success 

The young people who experience our museum are consistently energized and inspired by their experience here, with comments like these from local elementary students:

“I had a wonderful time at the JFK Presidential Library and Museum.  I now know that he worked with Martin Luther King Jr. and that the eagle was facing toward the arrows on this desk and that he wanted people to go to space. Thank you so so so so so much for letting us come!!!!!!!”

“Thank you for the terrific tour and the tour was fun because I got to learn about what he was and what he did for segregation.  That was the best tour I ever had.”

“I will never forget this field trip to the JFK museum.”

 

And from teachers:

“The children thoroughly enjoyed it and learned so much! ... You are providing a wonderful service to the school children of Massachusetts.”

“It really is amazing what my third graders can understand and work with, and they are so much more interested in ‘real’ things, rather than just reading out of a text book or secondary source each day.  Primary sources, and especially letters, I think, bring history alive, even to elementary students, and I will continue to use them as a way to more fully engage my students.”



Events

The Kennedy Library Forums are the flagship public program that helps define the Kennedy Presidential Library as a major center for political thought, debate and exchange.  The Forum series attracts national and world leaders and experts from fields of government, journalism, education, civil rights, science, arts, literature and music, law, and history for public discussion on a diverse range of historical, political and cultural topics reflecting the legacy of President Kennedy. Our Forums are free to the public and made possible by our generous underwriters. 

 

Recent Forum guests include: Attorney General Eric Holder; Robert Redford; Sergei Khrushchev & Jack Scholssberg; Caroline Kennedy; NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy; Elizabeth Warren; Conan O’Brien; Alan Brinkley; Madeleine Albright; Carole King; Patrick Hemingway; Andre Dubus III; Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Keith Richards, to name a few.

 

We also are proud to offer the Celebrate! series for family audiences and children, highlighting America’s rich cultural diversity through the arts.  All performances are free and open to the public.

Program Short-Term Success 

In 2012, over 15,500 visitors attended the Kennedy Library Forums onsite at the Kennedy Presidential Library.  In addition, 10,357 viewers in 81 countries viewed webcasts.  Between 2011-2012, we experienced a 59% increase in on-demand video playback of archived Forum events, indicating persistent interest in our content well after the event.  We delivered 890 hours of on-demand video, with nearly 3,300 plays.  If we add both live streaming (10,357) and on-demand audiences (3,300) to the in-person audience (15,500), we almost doubled our reach through online technologies.

Examples of Program Success 

Just one example of the quality of civic discourse offered by the Forum series is The Missile Gap forum hosted by the Library in October 2012, the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. 

 

To give a sense of the public response to the conferences, here is a comment from a high school teacher who brought some students and colleagues to the event:

“I just wanted to thank you again not just for accommodating my reading group at yesterday’s Cuban Missile Crisis conference but also for your work in organizing such a terrific panel.  All nine members of our group were agreed that it was a fantastic conference. It provided plenty of fuel for our discussion afterward – not to mention plenty of inspiration (especially from that memorable exchange between Sergei Khrushchev and President Kennedy’s grandson) regarding the possibilities for peace and reconciliation in our troubled world.” 


Web and Digital Archives Project

 

In 2011, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library unveiled the nation’s largest and most sophisticated online digital archive of a United States president. Our goal with the Archive is to provide worldwide accessibility to the collections of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library via the Internet, to minimize wear and tear on these treasured and irreplaceable physical assets, and to enhance the capability to search the collection using metadata.

 

Today, the JFK online digital archives is considered a state-of-the-art model by the National Archives. The digitization of archival records is becoming an essential means to allow the public greater access to our national treasures via websites, social media and mobile applications.

Program Short-Term Success 

Short-term success of the Web & Digital Archives can be measured through the volume of materials made available, and the size and demographics of the audience that chooses to access it. At launch in January 13, 2011, the online digital archive featured approximately 200,000 pages: 300 reels of audio tape; 300 museum artifacts; 72 reels of film; and 1,500 photos.  We have since added over 8,200 new photographs; 160,000 pages of archival documents; over 100 sound recordings and 40 moving image files; and 130 additional objects from the JFK Museum Collection.

 

Since the January 2011 launch of www.JFKLibrary.org and online Digital Archives, the site has received 5,860,064 visits from 4,376,186 unique visitors who logged in 20,204,243 page views.  In our second year, the website drew 3,020,080 visits, a 4% increase over 2011. 73% were new visitors, and 27% were returning visitors; 79% were from the US.  

Program Long-Term Success 

Beyond preservation, our goal with the Web and Digital Archives is to convey the historical and cultural lessons of the Kennedy era to a global audience, with a special focus on reaching those who are too young to have a living memory of the President, but for whom his inspiration is most crucial.  By investing in digitization and outreach through technology, we aim to deliver newly preserved film assets and historical documents directly to a younger, smart phone dependent audience who are nevertheless captivated by the story of their nation’s struggle for Civil Rights; its conflict with the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War; its efforts to land a man on the moon and return him safely to earth; its commitment to public service through the creation of the Peace Corps; its prevention of a nuclear holocaust during the Cuban Missile Crisis; and its embrace of American art and culture under the guidance of first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. 

 

Program Success Monitored By 

Web traffic is closely monitored, as noted in “short-term successes” above.  We also are successfully employing new media to promote visitation to the Library and engage new audiences. These include, as of January 15, 2013:

Mobile devices represented 13% of all visits in 2012, up from 7% in all of 2011.  

Examples of Program Success 

The online Digital Archives continues to earn accolades from both the general public and presidential scholars.  At a Kennedy Library Forum on May 15, 2012, Alan Brinkley discussed his new biography, John F. Kennedy: The 35th President, 1961-1963.  He spoke to the value of the Digital Archives: 

"I felt uncomfortable writing this book without having archival material, and so I’m really grateful to the Kennedy Library for creating the digital archive that was opened just a year or two ago.  When I started working on this book-and this was at a time when the archives here were closed because of work-and it made a tremendous difference in the way I thought about doing this book, and it made a big difference in the way I thought about Kennedy after a while, so it’s really a great thing for scholars that this digital archive has been created."

The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.
