Honor Those Who Served

Help us reach our first goal of $10,000 by April 2024

Located in the heart of the City of Howell on the lawn of the historic Livingston County Courthouse, the Livingston County Veterans Memorial is a special place for our community. Built in the 1940’s, it lists the names of the veterans from Livingston County who gave their lives in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. This spring, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation is working alongside local partners and the community to raise funds to enhance the memorial.

Six jet black granite stones displaying the badges of the United States military would be added to the memorial’s benches, along with lighting improvements. The entire cost of the project is approximately $25,000, but in order to have the enhancements installed by Veteran’s Day 2024, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation is looking to raise $10,000 by April. This is where our community fits in. Your donations to this project will directly pay tribute to veterans who served. Help us make the memorial more of a centerpiece for those who visit downtown Howell and drive past it on Grand River Avenue.

Anyone interested in donating is invited to do so using the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Stripe link at https://buy.stripe.com/bIYg0962f6ig4ZGfYY. Check or cash is accepted at 123 E. Washington St., Howell. Please make checks payable to the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation with a note for Howell Veterans Memorial Renovation.

All funds raised for the enhancement project will be administered solely by the Foundation, which is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to receive and administer funds for educational, cultural, scientific, and charitable purposes and for the public welfare of the Livingston County community.
