There are memorials to our veterans throughout the local community and the region. Some are small; barely noticed by those who pass. Some are large, but are lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday activities.
The University of Toledo proposes to create a site where remembering can take place and where the deeds of our service men and women can be celebrated and remembered. Most importantly, this location can serve as a reminder of the price some have paid for the freedoms generations of students enjoy.
The Veterans’ Plaza will be located on the east entrance of our state-of-the-art classroom building, which was the Memorial Field House. In the center of the campus, adjacent to Centennial Mall, the plaza will serve as a walkway to and around the classroom facility and as an access way for individuals with disabilities.
To make the Veterans’ Plaza a reality, the University requests the assistance of veterans’ organizations and individuals throughout the region. We are asking each organization or individual consider a gift or pledge of $1,000 to offset the costs of construction of the plaza. In recognition of these gifts, each organization or individual will be acknowledged on separate plaques. The donors may choose the language to memorialize a group of veterans, loved ones, or all of those who served.
In addition to the plaques, donors may select $5,000 for a memorial stone prominently displayed along the base of the Veteran’s Plaza Wall near the flags.
Other giving opportunities include:
$100 - Individual Name on Main Plaque
$1,000 - 12"x18" Custom Plaque
$2,500 - Named Memorial Stone
$5,000 - Named Flag Poll (3 available)
$5,000 - Named Bench (4 available)
The plaza will feature three flagpoles for displaying the United States flag, the flag of the State of Ohio, and the POW/MIA flag. Twenty-four hour lighting will provide appropriate honors. Veterans’ groups and student groups also may use the plaza for ceremonies.
In the workaday world that surrounds each of us, there is little time and few places to remember those who have served our country. The University of Toledo Veterans’ Plaza will stand as just such a place for our veterans, our community and, most importantly, our students.
Please join us in creating this very special place. Make your gift online now on our secure site.https://give2ut.utoledo.edu/utfoundation/gift_veterans.asp
