National Wrestling Hall of Fame Endowment Fund

John T. Vaughan, a true visionary for the sport of wrestling and Distinguished Member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum, passed away in April of 2006, but his devotion to the Hall of Fame and its mission did not. Just a few short weeks after his death, John’s widow Helen presented a $150,000 cash gift to help create an endowment fund.

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum has established an Endowment Fund with the Tulsa Community Foundation of Oklahoma. It is our hope to reach and even exceed our endowment goal of $3 million. With your support, we will provide a financial bedrock to sustain a perpetual source of income for the Hall of Fame’s operational budget.

Please consider how you can participate in this endowment challenge opportunity through a cash gift, a gift of stock, a planned gift or another type of immediate or future gift. To communicate your intent, please print out the Verification Form and Instruction Form below.
