Flagpole Fundraiser

The Missouri Military Memorial Foundation monument is almost complete after 6 1/2 long years of grassroots fundraising.

The structure and graphic work that will be engraved on the memorial is  being completed as I type this. The excitement of seeing all of our hard work in honoring Missouri’s fallen military personnel come to light is INTENSE.

In the meantime, we have found out that we need another $6000 to get three beautiful flagpoles installed at the memorial. If you can find it in your heart to help us reach that goal we would be grateful. EVERY single dollar helps!

In order to donate, simply visit our website at and click on the “Donate Now” tab. You can use secure PayPal or submit the donation via USPS. Please make the check payable to the Missouri Military Memorial Foundation and submit it to:

PO BOX 1772
FENTON, MO 63026
