Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Las Vegas Veterans Memorial Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada. The organization was created by American Shooters, Inc., a veteran-operated business in Las Vegas specifically to organize and spearhead the effort to construct a veteran’s memorial. The Foundation is fully committed to creating a timeless monument honoring the heroic service and profound sacrifices of all of the country’s military veterans and their families.

The memorial will serve as a reminder to all that we shall forever honor the heroism and spirit of those who have served and will serve in our nation’s military. Located near the heart of the Las Vegas Cultural Corridor on approximately two acres, the memorial will feature 18 larger-than-life statues surrounded by granite memorial walls. The Foundation continues to work in close collaboration with the city of Las Vegas, local veteran organizations and the broader community to make the memorial a reality.

The memorial is well underway with all of the 18 statues in some stage of production. Our Board and Fundraising Committee are actively engaging with many organizations across the state and throughout the country to raise awareness about the memorial. To date our organization has secured over $800,000 of the $2.2 million needed through a host of generous contributions and pledges. We anticipate a project completion timeframe of Fall/Winter of 2015.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    To create a world-class monument that provides a powerful and lasting experience for the visitor, while evoking a deep sense of gratitude and respect for our Veteran's and their Families. In addition to showing appreciation and bring recognition to the commitment and sacrifices our Veteran’s and their Families have endured throughout our country’s history by establishing a Veterans Memorial.

  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Not available.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Not available.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    As of January 2014 our organization has raised over $800,000 of the $2,200,000 needed to complete the memorial. Our artist is approximately 20 months into his 30 month contract for completing all of the 18 statues that will be the primary focus of the memorial. All 18 of the statues are in various stages of production with five statues fully completed and available for viewing upon request.

    As an organization we still have a long way to go. We anticipate breaking ground the construction of the memorial site in Q4 of 2014.
