Donations & Sponsorship
Donations to the Greater Cleveland Veterans Memorial, Inc., are very much appreciated. Contributions to the cause are tax deductible. All contributions to the GCVM will support ongoing projects and fund future activities on behalf of Greater Cleveland's veterans, past and present.
To make a general donation to the GCVM, please contact us.
Perhaps you might consider sponsoring a name or names on this "living memorial" and the Memorial Fountain. If you sponsor a name, the sponsorship applies to both the Memorial Fountain and the "living memorial". Sponsors will be acknowledged on the web site. Individual sponsors may be limited to no more than twenty-five (25) names, and corporate, foundation, or organizational sponsors may be limited to no more than one-hundred (100) names.
Families of our fallen heroes are always accorded the right to sponsor the name of their loved one. The GCVM executive committee reserves the right and the discretion to decide all issues related to sponsorship.
Why consider sponsoring a name?
The GCVM is a charitable, 501(c)(3) tax exempt, corporation comprised exclusively of volunteers. We realize there are future, ongoing costs to maintain both the "living memorial" and the basin of the Memorial Fountain with the added names. Thus, we have established the "GCVM Memorial Fund" and all donations to sponsor a name will go to the memorial fund. Donations are tax deductible.
What will it cost to sponsor a name?
The cost is $5.00 for each name. Of course, you may donate more than $5.00 per name as it is a minimum cost of sponsorship.
How do I/we sponsor a name or several names?
You should print out the SPONSOR FORM, fill it in, and mail to the following address with your check or money order payable to the "GCVM Memorial Fund":
The Greater Cleveland Veterans Memorial, Inc.
1111 Superior Avenue, Suite 1350
