A donation to VVMF is a thoughtful way to honor a loved one. Donate in honor of someone’s birthday, or request donations in lieu of flowers.
When you donate in honor or in memory of someone, VVMF will notify the recipient by letter or email – the choice is up to you.
When completing the donation form below, select “Yes, in memory of someone” for a memorial donation, and “Yes, to honor someone” for a donation such as a birthday or Father’s Day gift. Please note: the honoree is the person you are honoring with your gift, and the recipient is who you would like us to notify.
Email notifications are sent immediately, and letter notifications are mailed on a monthly basis. If you would like your notification mailed sooner, please contact VVMF at [email protected] or 202-330-0957.

How to honor a Vietnam veteran who has passed
Since the Vietnam War ended, thousands of Vietnam veterans have suffered due to Agent Orange exposure, PTSD and other illnesses as a result of their service. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) believes all those who served in Vietnam should be honored and remembered for their service. The In Memory program enables the families and friends of those who came home and later died the opportunity to have them be forever memorialized.
