Memorial & Tribute Gifts

"We are born for a higher destiny than that of earth; there is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the stars will be spread before us like islands that slumber on the ocean, and where the beings that pass before us like shadows will stay in our presence forever." - Edward Bulwer-Lytton

You can make a meaningful difference in the life of a veteran by making your contribution to support the The American Legion in memory or honor of a loved on by completing and mailing in the printable donation form, or by donating online now.

A gift of remembrance to The American Legion is a wonderful way to recognize someone who has made a difference in your life. It is a thoughtful memorial, or a way to honor someone on special occasions, such as birthday, retirement, anniversary or holiday.

These gifts are a gratifying way for individuals, organizations, businesses and groups to honor some one while supporting The American Legion’s mission to support our fellow veterans, our armed forces personnel and their families throughout the world.

A memorial or tribute card is sent as specified. The amount of the gift is not indicated. Every gift is tax deductible and the donor receives an acknowledgment. Simply register your loved one's name with the Legion by calling (317) 860-3009 and asking for a Memorial Program representative.

There is no minimum contribution required and no administrative cost associated with the Fund; all donations are used for American Legion programs.

In appreciation of your contribution, The American Legion will mail a personal thank you note to the donor, as well as notification of the gift to the next of kin within 48 hours. When $25 has been accumulated in the name of the deceased, their next of kin will receive a beautiful gold bordered certificate indicating that contributions had been made to The American Legion in the name of their loved one. For a single memorial donation of $300 or more, the family will receive a memorial desk plaque (please make sure we are sent the name and address of the next of kin).
