The Gold Star Memorial Foundation (GSMF) is a 501c(3) nonprofit that seeks to memorialize the dedication and sacrifice of our local families whose loved one has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Our values and mission are aligned with that of our parent organization's mission statement, which states, "To honor, recognize, and serve the Gold Star Families and the legacy of their loved ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice." Our organization is 100% volunteer-driven, allowing for all proceeds donated go solely towards the establishment of the Gold Star Memorial Monument.
The future home of Lacey's Gold Star Memorial Monument will be located at 521 Sleater Kinney Road, which is right in the heart of the city in the Civic Plaza.
The location was generously provided by the City of Lacey and WSDOT for this project.
The placement of this Gold Star Memorial will honor the Gold Star Families and relatives of our men and women that have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms as service members of the United States Military Armed Forces.
