After months of research and planning, Marv Grunig’s hopes for a highly visible Windom Area Veterans Service Memorial now gets put to a test — a donation test.
Tax-free donations can begin immediately for the project. The official donation site is a project fund recently approved by the Windom Area Foundation board.
Any donation targeted for the memorial will funnel directly into the project (not the Foundation’s current endowment fundraiser).
Grunig, a city councilman, says donations make up 100% of the project’s funds — meaning the project’s success hinges on donations.
Here are two options for donating:
• Mail a check marked “Veterans Memorial donation” payable to Windom Area Foundation, P. O. Box 351, Windom, MN, 56101.
• For the Foundation’s online giving link, go to Facebook and find “Windom Area Foundation.” After clicking on the link, select the Veterans Memorial Fund.
