The George C. Marshall International Center, Inc. (GCMIC) was founded to preserve the home of George and Katherine Marshall and to advance the legacy of George Catlett Marshall, considered by many to be one of the greatest modern-day American heroes. Marshall is recognized as the organizer of the Allied Victory in World War Two and the architect of the European Recovery Program (the Marshall Plan) that changed the face of the world.
Today, The mission of GCMIC is to preserve and advance the enduring legacy of General George Catlett Marshall by interpreting and propagating its relevance to our time. These objectives are advanced through community outreach events, education programs, international exchanges, exhibitions, lecture series, and the interpretation of Marshall’s home and gardens.
Education is the cornerstone of our programming. GCMIC's student exchange programs are designed to strengthen the relationships between Europe and the United States, on a grass roots level by providing unique experiences for the exchange of ideas among participants from the United States and the Marshall Plan countries. Its Friends Events, Foreign Policy Forum and international speakers programs bring prominent international speakers to The Marshall House to support and increase transatlantic dialogue.
As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, GCMIC relies on support through a combination of memberships, private donations, corporate sponsorships, grants, and program and event revenue to fund its mission and maintain The Marshall House museum.
Contributions support important education programs; special exhibitions; community events such as the July Fourth ice cream social, Veterans Day commemoration, and annual Easter Egg Hunt; maintenance of Marshall's former home and gardens. They also help GCMIC sustain its operations, enabling it to continue to share Marshall's life with visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
