Frequently Asked Questions

How can my Patron donation be transferred?

The Memorial Association accepts checks, debit and credit card transactions, and transfers of appreciated securities. Contact us using the form below and we will be happy to provide the information you need.

I am already a Friend of the Memorial. Do those contributions count toward becoming a Patron?

Yes. All of your contributions to the Friends of the Memorial and Patron programs are cumulative. That means that all of the amounts you have given to either of these programs in the past are part of one total. When you are at one recognition level, any additional contributions accumulate toward the next level. (Note: George Washington Memorial Society membership contributions and tree dedications are not included in this amount.)
