Memorial Day: Donating to Pennsylvania’s Veterans’ Memorial Trust Fund is an Ideal Way to Pay Tribute to Those Who Served

05/24/2021

Annville, PA - The Memorial Day holiday is a yearly reminder that the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Memorial, located at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in Annville, Lebanon County, stands in lasting tribute to those who served our state and nation in times of war and peace. It is the largest veteran’s memorial located in any of the national cemeteries. 

The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) suggests that donating to the memorial’s trust fund is an ideal way to pay tribute to those who have served our country. 

“Although many of America’s military heroes are no longer with us, their legacy of service and sacrifice lives on in our hearts and our commitment to memorializing their lives,” said Maj. Gen. Mark Schindler, Pennsylvania’s acting adjutant general and acting head of the DMVA. “The Pennsylvania Veterans’ Memorial is a reminder of the true cost of war and a hallowed place to visit and reflect upon all who have gone before us in selfless service to our country.” 

Schindler added that 100 percent of donations go toward the on-going upkeep such as landscaping, lighting, and fountains as well as needed maintenance for structural and cosmetic components throughout the memorial.  

Donations to the Pennsylvania Veterans' Memorial Trust Fund can be made online at www.donate.dmva.pa.gov or by sending a check made payable to the "Pennsylvania Veterans' Memorial Trust Fund” and mailed to: DMVA Office for Veterans Affairs, Bldg. 9-26, Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, PA 17003-5002. Donations can be made “In Honor Of,” “In Memory Of” or “On Behalf Of.” 

Anyone interested in supporting additional veteran’s causes can visit www.donate.dmva.pa.gov to consider contributing to the Veterans’ Trust Fund, the Military Family Relief Assistance Program or any of the six Veterans Homes Resident Welfare Funds.
