Dauphin County Heroes Grove Forms Nonprofit Corporation
Project now underway in Brightbill Park, Lower Paxton Township

(Dauphin County, PA) – Dauphin County Heroes Grove has now incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit foundation known as Heroes Fund, Inc. The new nonprofit will serve as the fundraising vehicle for Dauphin County Heroes Grove which is now under construction in Brightbill Park in Lower Paxton Township.

Previously contributions to Dauphin County Heroes Grove were processed through The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC). The project will no longer utilize the services of TFEC and will handle all charitable functions in-house.

Individuals, corporations and organizations interested in contributing to Dauphin County Heroes Grove can make checks payable to Heroes Fund, Inc., and send them to P.O. Box # 126465, Harrisburg, PA 17112.

The Dauphin County Heroes Grove Committee continues to sell commemorative pavers to be installed at the project site. Complete information on pavers and a form to order them can be found on-line at www.heroesgrove.org.

Heroes Grove is a tribute to those who serve. The Honorable Ronald S. Marsico and a committee of dedicated citizens are developing Heroes Grove in Lower Paxton Township to honor veterans, emergency responders, and law enforcement personnel who have demonstrated their dedication to our communities, the Commonwealth, and the country. Heroes Grove will feature an amphitheater in which ceremonies, educational seminars, festivals and concerts will be held. The facility will increase public awareness of the agencies, organizations and people who protect and serve our society.

Dauphin County has countless ordinary citizens who have done extraordinary feats and Heroes Grove will honor them in a place that currently does not exist, nor is duplicated by any other county-wide memorial. Heroes Grove is endorsed by local, county and state law enforcement, veterans, firefighters and emergency service organizations.

Dauphin County Heroes Grove needs your support. Construction and equipment costs are estimated to be $3 million. An intensive funding campaign is being conducted. Contributions can range from foundation grants to individual citizen contributions, from the donation of a monument to the purchase of a paver.

Dauphin County Heroes Grove is a project of Heroes Fund, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation.
