Veterans Memorial Funding

Funding
The Veterans Memorial in Coralville has been constructed through sales of memorial pavers, generous community gifts, and donations of in-kind services. Fundraising continues to reach the goal of $160,000 to complete the project. The final funding will be used to:

  • Erect six granite monuments honoring each branch of the United States Armed Forces
  • Install a sign on the sign wall
  • Complete final landscaping

The Veterans Memorial Campaign Committee continues to seek donations from businesses, organizations, families, and individuals to help complete the final pieces of the memorial. In addition, pavers honoring veterans will always be available for purchase.
