Founded in New York in 1921 or 1922, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation endowed permanent awards for distinguished public service. Franklin D. Roosevelt served as Chairman of the National Committee. In time, a memorial library was also established at the Woodrow Wilson House at 45 E. 65th St., New York City. In 1950, the Foundation transferred the Library to the United Nations.

The Woodrow Wilson Foundation was an organization formed in 1922 in New York City for the "perpetuation of Wilson's ideals" through research grants and publications. In 1963 the Foundation placed all of these activities indefinitely on hold to provide the financial backing for the completion of THE PAPERS OF WOODROW WILSON, a 69 volume full-scale edition of Wilson's papers, jointly sponsored by Princeton University which housed the papers and tended to the staff. Following the publication of the final volume of the papers, the Foundation turned its support to the Princeton Society of Fellows, and provided funding for research that reflected its original vision of Wilsonian ideals. The decades-long papers project greatly strained the Foundation however, and the organization was liquidated soon after completion.
