In the 19th century, Thomas Edison achieved great things at Menlo Park by harnessing the collective energy and brainpower of his team as well as by finding innovative ways to capitalize his projects. Now, in the 21st century, a similar collective effort is needed to fulfill plans to turn the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park into a flourishing educational center that uses the example set by Edison and his innovative laboratory to encourage future innovators.


Edison Memorial Tower Corporation (EMTC)

The mission of the Edison Memorial Tower Corporation (EMTC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to raise funds to preserve, promote, and manage the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park.
