We are not currently seeking donations and do thank those that have donated...scroll down to see our donors.


This project was totally funded through private donations to the "Purple Heart Trail Fund," established under the Marine Corps League #680, a non-profit veteran’s organization. Funds have been applied to purchase and install highway signs and to establish a mandated reserve fund for their replacements if/when needed.  Funds may also be used to prepare & distribute special Purple Heart Trail pamphlets to guide visitors to the various veteran venues along this part of the trail (see the Maps page).
