The Orange County Veterans Memorial at Chapel Hill is now accepting donations.

It will take a lot of work to raise funds for this community project. We want to make it a true gift of the people and community of Orange County to our veterans.

Want to make a donation on-line?   All donations are made through the Orange County Community Giving Fund (a fund of Orange County for Community Purposes.  See IRS Publication 526), and are fully tax deductible.  The fund will designate your donation to VETERANS MEMORIAL  when you select our memorial in the drop-down menu.  There is a registration process for on-line donations.  This process ensures your information is protected and that you will receive an acknowledgement from the Orange County Community Giving Fund.

Think about how you, as a veteran, private citizen, or corporation, can support our mission. Please consider:

  • A corporate sponsorship
  • Memorial gift to recognize a family member or friend.
  • An endowment
  • Donating Real Property, stocks, and bonds
  • A cash donation
  • A community service organization fundraiser to benefit the proposed memorial.

Most efforts by groups and organizations take time to organize and develop. Now is the time to bring the question up at your next meeting.
