Strategy and Phase One Funding

Critical to the success of implementing the overall strategy for this massive project is the funding of Phase One. The following document reviews both the overall project strategy and the business plan for Phase One.


The strategy to fund the Monument to Enduring Freedom and the tactics to work that strategy are time-sensitive and will only be discussed verbally in a private confidential setting. The end result of this strategy is to secure a commission for the entire cost of the project. The total cost for the full-size statue and pedestal/visitors center will be determined as part of the work of Phase One. The combined height will be the same as the Statue of Liberty, 305 feet.
