The Memorial Day Foundation: Honor Through Remembrance

The Memorial Day Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt not-for-profit organization; donations are tax deductible. The Foundation relies solely on volunteers, donors and gratuitous services.

Mission Statement: Increase and restore patriotic awareness and respect for Memorial Day by maintaining a tradition of public honor and remembrance.

Vision Statement: To continually involve the public in patriotism and remembrance via historical and traditional ways of observing Memorial Day. One such way is with flowers. The gift of flowers at a memorial site is a ritual practiced worldwide in every culture. As you probably know our own Memorial Day began as Decoration Day, when on May 30th Americans would decorate the graves of Civil War Veterans with flowers.

About the flowers: A beautiful and dignified small floral wreath of artificial silk flowers that have the realistic look of fresh flowers with the durability of silk flowers.

Card: Each small floral wreath will have a thank you card attached to it that the donor has the option to sign. The thank you card can be signed by individuals, couples, families, corporations, institutions, organizations and civic associations. If you or a relative (living) have served in the military and were honorably discharged type “With honor” then your name or relative’s name, rank, branch of service, unit or ship and the war you served in if applicable. If a relative, friend or loved one served in a war and is deceased type “Resting in peace” their name, rank, branch of service, unit or ship and the war they served in.
