The Vailima Foundation was established by Charlotte and Norman H. Strouse in 1968 to provide funds and leadership for a museum in the St. Helena area, into which their collection of Robert Louis Stevenson books, art, manuscripts and memorabilia could be placed as a permanent gift to the public.
Today, the Vailima Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, does business as the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum.
Its Board of Trustees directs the affairs of the Museum and manages its collections which are held in public trust.
The Board of Trustees of the Vailima Foundation is always interested in bringing in new members to support the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and help share the Story of Stevenson.
