In 2007 we founded the Memorial Association that represents Montgomery County’s 33 law enforcement agencies. Our mission is to take care of our own. That’s why for years we’ve been helping the family and coworker survivors of this county’s officers tragically killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. 

We support these survivors by providing financial assistance in their time of need. We stage annual memorial ceremonies to commemorate their loved ones’ sacrifice, and award annual college scholarships to preserve the legacies of the fallen.

But our overarching goal has always been to build a memorial—in honor of those fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice—to help keep their communities safe. What Abraham Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion.” To ensure they are never forgotten.

In recent years we’ve made good progress. Which started with the Dayton Masonic Foundation’s generous donation of an ideal site for the memorial’s permanent home. And took shape when our nationwide Juried Arts Competition brought us an awe inspiring design that will bring it to life. 

Most recently we engaged a renowned local architectural firm that’s currently transforming the conceptual design drawings into detailed engineering schematics. That once completed will pave the way for us to break ground and begin construction.

Lately we’ve ramped up our fundraising efforts, and are nearly halfway to having our projected budget fully funded. But we still need additional donations to help cover the costs of the memorial’s materials, construction and perpetual upkeep.

As a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization we depend on generous donations from philanthropic foundations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals. Please give generously to this noble cause.
