The Barack Obama Foundation was created in January 2014 to lay the groundwork for the President and First Lady's philanthropic activities after the President leaves the White House in January 2017. The Foundation's first major project is the creation of a Library and Museum, in partnership with the National Archives and Records Administration. Future plans involve the creation of programs and initiatives that reflect the President and First Lady's values and priorities throughout their careers in public service: expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of citizenship and promoting peace, justice and dignity throughout the world.
