This fund was established to support the water needs of the Cemetery, but more importantly to maintain a dignified final resting place to honor our veterans to express gratitude for their service to our country and as a source of pride to Veteran's families and residents of Northern California.
The Veterans Cemetery Endowment Fund was established by the North State Community who rallied around the cause to be sure landscaping and maintenance costs at the cemetery would always be covered. A goal to raise $200,000 by Cemetery Dedication Day on November 10, 2005 was reached. Children donated pennies. College students held a car wash. Clubs of all kinds organized events and raised funds. More than 600 groups and individuals made contributions in memory of their loved ones who served in the military. The fund is to grow in perpetuity, ensuring that North State veterans will have a dignified resting place forever.
