Losing a loved one is a time of reflection. It is also an opportunity to create a lasting tribute to honor one’s life, military service, and accomplishments. Establishing a “Tribute Gift”, “Gifts In Lieu of Flowers” or “Charitable Gifts In Memory” is a dignified and fitting way to honor the life and legacy of a loved one. Tribute gifts will be acknowledged to the donor and next of kin within a week of receipt, and will begin serving Veterans immediately in downtown Boston.
You or your loved ones can send a gift of any amount to us online by clicking the button below, or mail it to us at:
