How to Sponsor a Wreath:
- These wreaths must be sponsored each year by friends, family, military supports and organizations.
- Each live wreath is hand-made in the USA and shipped fresh to Ft. Mitchell the week of the ceremony.
- For every two wreaths sponsored, a third wreath is donated for free, thanks to the Auburn CAP squadron!
- Wreaths Across America is a non-profit, 501c3 Organization, so your wreath sponsorships are tax deductible.
Click here and choose the organization you want to sponsor through.
Once on the donation site, click the red “Donate” button on the right, and follow the prompting directions.
VERY IMPORTANT: If sponsoring a wreath for a specific person(s), ensure you click the “yes” button next to the questions “Place Wreaths on Specific Grave(s)” during the above process. This allows you to provide us the name, grave number and any specific info (ie you are or are not planning to attend the ceremony). Please also email the event coordinators (FortMitchellWreaths@gmail.com – preferred) or call 205-240-4169 to ensure we get the grave-specific information. Without this info, we won’t know you sponsored a wreath! At the ceremony, you may pick your wreath up and place it.
The final step is providing your payment option, whether by card or electronic check (same info as is on your paper check). You’ll receive an email confirmation once your sponsorship is processed.
Ordering by Phone
Call 1-877-385-9504, and press 5 at the options menu to sponsor a wreath. Tell the operator you’d like to sponsor a wreath for the Fort Mitchell National Cemetery location, and provide them with our ID number of AL0007 – Auburn Composite Squadron, to get the 3 for 2 deal (three wreaths for every two sponsored).
