Tribute Park


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

Park Paths

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.


Bronze Sculptures

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.

Living Tributes

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

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.

Bronze Plaques

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
