  • Oregon WWII Memorial: What Will We Give?

    WWII Memorial - what we will give

    Final crowdfunding campaign to complete memorial and bring it alive.

    Nearly two years after hundreds gathered to witness the groundbreaking of Oregon’s World War II Memorial, construction is now underway to complete it on the grounds of the state capitol.

    March third signals the launch of the final crowdfunding campaign by the Oregon World War II Memorial Foundation to ask every Oregonian to contribute what they can to help complete the memorial and bring it alive by linking it with stories of Oregonians on the battlefield and the home front.

    In 2011, the Oregon Legislature authorized an official Oregon World War II Memorial to be built on the capitol grounds. The memorial foundation is the non-profit organization charged with raising private funds to build the memorial and to unify Oregon communities to honor their veterans from that era, and the generation of people who supported the war effort on the home front.

    Find more information or learn how to donate to the Oregon World War II Memorial.
