Veterans Bridge Project

Honoring our Veterans for Their Service

The Webster County Veterans Association and the Fort Dodge Community Foundation have joined forces to create a remarkable tribute for those who have served our country. The Veterans Memorial Bridge in Fort Dodge will undergo stunning enhancements, starting with eye-catching features on the bridge that will include vibrantly lighted banners, folded flag emblems and Service branch medallions on all the bridge light poles. This project will also include an attractive bridge entry sign, enhanced bridge lighting, and a plaza next to the bridge to further honor our Veterans. A donor wall will recognize individuals and businesses that support the project. 

We are excited to launch a fund-raising effort for this exciting project. Please join us in honoring our heroes with the Veterans Memorial Project-a lasting tribute for those who served. Your support is not just a donation; it's a salute to patriotism and valor.

Donations can be made payable by check to the Fort Dodge Community Foundation/Veterans Bridge Fund. All donations are tax-deductible.
