Plan a tribute TO someone you know

Three-line inscription on a granite paver of the plaza

Has someone you know inspired you and others by persevering through the challenges of a disability? Disabilities can affect movement, thinking, learning, memory, communication, vision, hearing, mental health, social relationships, or other important parts of our lives.

Honor your personal hero by planning a three-line inscription on a granite paver of the Memorial plaza. Then ask others to contribute in his or her name.

Together your friends and family will give a gift of a tribute engraved in stone at the FDR Hope Memorial.

The MyFDR fundraising site will launch soon.
