As the 65th anniversary of D-Day approaches, Dr. William McIntosh, director of the National D-Day Memorial Foundation, has announced that the Foundation may not have enough money to continue to operate the Memorial after the end of summer.
According to McIntosh, it costs $2.2 million each year to operate the Memorial. The site takes in $600,000 from visitors and donations make up the rest. Like all non-profit organizations, the Foundation has seen a drop in the donations it receives. He said that it has $300,000 in unrestricted funds in the bank.
