Important Historical Documents preserved by Toyota donation

Important Historical Documents

Toyota has taken a step towards preserving our country’s history with a recent $100,000 gift to the Foundation for the National Archives. With this gift, the Foundation has been able to preserve many important historical documents, including the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as the GI Bill, President Nixon’s letter of resignation from 1973, and the Congressional passage of the Bill of Rights in 1789.


“It’s an honor to have Toyota preserve this special part of America’s rich history because of its impact on so many veterans, who sacrificed so much to keep our country safe and free,” said Don Esmond, Toyota Senior Adviser and a decorated Marine. “It’s important that they are given help restarting their civilian life.”


Toyota’s exhibition support has also enabled visitors to view and learn about differently documents, specifically the GI Bill, online, even when it’s not on display at the National Archives Museum. To see the GI Bill, visit the Foundation’s website here.
