monuments commemorate those who lost their lives in Vietnam. The
National Vietnam War Museum is being established to recognize not only
those who died, but to better understand the Vietnam era and the lasting
effects of those who lived through it. History and the significance
of the era isn't the only thing that is passing from the memory of so
passing of time sees the passing of more of our friends and comrades,
and with it, evidence of our own mortality. To honor them, the Museum
Board established the Directors Endowment, which will be used
for sustaining operations of the Museum. Donations to specific funds,
in the name of the deceased, may be made, at the families' request,
in lieu of flowers. These funds will remain open so that anyone wishing
to contribute to a specific memorial fund will be able to send donations
annotated "________Memorial fund". These memorial funds ensure
that perpetual donations may be made to the museum in honor of the deceased.
The families will be notified of gifts when they are received.
funds may be established within the Directors Endowment to honor any
individual, whether connected with the Museum or not. If you wish to
establish a fund, please contact the Endowment Manager, in care of the
Museum, for details. The funds, and their honorees, will receive appropriate
recognition in Museum literature and a permanent place of honor. All
contributions to the National Vietnam War Museum Directors Endowment
are tax-deductible within the IRS limits specified for a 501(c)(3) organization.
