INSPIRING HER FUTURE BEGINS WITH YOU.
HER STORY. OUR LEGACY.
Your support is critical to the ongoing operations and mission of America’s only national memorial to honor and tell the story of the 3 million women who have served in her defense. Capturing and preserving her story, our legacy, through stories of service and sacrifice is integral to our national history and pride, and inspiring future generations of leaders, trailblazers, and changemakers. Your support makes a difference – igniting the spark, one story at a time.
The Military Women’s Memorial operates thanks to the generosity of donors like you—many of whom are the very women the Memorial celebrates. The Memorial is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, not a federal facility. For more information, please contact the Military Women’s Memorial at 703-822-7270 or [email protected].
