Our mission is our promise: to honor our nation's veterans and active-duty military by providing help and hope for their children and families. You can help make sure that promise never goes unfulfilled today and in the years to come.
When you place an item in the park, you provide a timeless expression of your dedication to the mission of the VFW
National Home for Children --and you help create a peaceful and beautiful park that residents and visitors alike can enjoy. You also ensure we are able to serve future generations of military and veteran families, as your net donation will be placed in our Amy Ross Endowment Fund, a permanently restricted endowment fund created to generate annual income for the National Home.
Please communicate directly with the National Home’s Donor Relations Department at 866.483.9642 or before sending a donation to dedicate a tribute in the Tribute Park.
Tributes that can be placed in the Park
When you dedicate a path, a bronze plaque will be placed next to
the walkway with the name you choose for the path and your
tribute message. A path can be used as a tribute with a minimum
donation of $25,000.
Sculptures placed in the Tribute Park will feature a plaque, placed on or next to the sculpture, with your tribute message. A variety of sculptures are available, beginning with a minimum donation of $18,000.
Every park needs beautiful trees. When you place a tree in the park,
your tribute message will appear on a bronze plaque at its base. Several tree varieties are available with a minimum donation of $4,000.
Stone Table and Seats
Visitors can sit and chat or have a picnic on this stone table set.
Because of the large surface area, it is an excellent way to pay tribute to a number of people. The stone table set can be placed in the park with a minimum donation of $15,000.
Stone benches provide space for quiet reflection throughout the park. Your tribute message can be engraved on the bench seat with a minimum donation of $8,000.
Your tribute message can appear on a bronze plaque placed on
one of the large stone outcroppings that serve as tribute walls in
the park. Many size options are available, starting with a
minimum donation of $3,000.
Flagstones are embedded throughout the brick paths and can be
engraved with your personal message for visitors to see as they
stroll the park. Flagstone tributes are available with a minimum
donation of $5,000.
Honor or memorialize someone or put your name or organization's name on a brick to be placed in a sidewalk at the National Home.
