Donations to Flags for Fort Snelling will be used to support the production of the new sustainable flag staff. Our goal is to have 250,000 of the new flag design by 2021. This would be enough inventory to cover Fort Snelling’s growth for over ten years, then only needing to replenish enough each year (5,000+ flags) to cover cemetery growth and lost flags.
Flags for Fort Snelling Donations
In 2018, Flags for Fort Snelling raised enough funds to purchase 200,000 disposable flags. Tens of thousands of flags are lost to damage each year simply because these flags were not meant for this sort of longterm use.
For 2020, we have started the fundraising effort for a new sustainable flag staff- The Legacy Flag. This new retractable plastic flag staff will be substantially more durable and is designed to contain the flag within an outer shell for protection. These flags will last decades for incredible cost and environmental savings!
Thank you for every effort and contribution, it is amazing how much support we have received in honor of our American Heroes. CLICK HERE to download a copy of our 501c3 to write off your donation.
2020 FLAG FUNDRAISER
Fundraising for the Legacy Flag-
A permanent collection for Fort Snelling National Cemetery to last for generations.
Let’s use this season to remind our online friends, family, schools, companies, organizations, VFWs and Legions of the FFFS Mission. Minnesotan’s are rebuilding this tradition together, and we need your help getting the permanent flags we need to sustain it. Ideally, we’ll come back on Memorial Day 2021 armed with these new, beautiful, retractable staffs that will protect each of the 250,000 American flags the way they deserve!
Thank you for your continued support from our Forever Americans!
