Honor & Memorial Donations

Honor & Memorial Donations

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, you can choose to have the recipient notified when you make your gift.

When completing the online 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.

To donate online, visit our online donation form. You can add your honoree information after you check the box, “I would like to make this contribution in honor or in memory of someone”

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. ​​​​​​​
