The unsettling image of United Flight 175 striking the South Tower of the World Trade Center has been forever etched into our collective memories. Under the painful implications of this faceless image, it becomes nearly impossible to reflect on the lives lost on September 11, 2001. We remember the plane but may forget the joy brought into the world by our deceased fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, sons, daughters and friends. The Garden of Reflection began as an attempt to replace this snapshot representation of American wreckage with a message of peace. Today, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, The Garden stands as an uplifting remembrance and a beacon of hope for us all.  

In order to perpetuate this wonderfully moving memorial to the victims of that infamous day, as well as to protect the $2.4 million construction and maintenance investment, the 9-11 Memorial Garden of Reflection, Inc. Board of Directors, with the support of Lower Makefield Township, recognized the need to raise $2 million to be placed in an endowment to fund future operations. The “Remembrance Fund” endowment was created to honor the loved ones lost by providing for the perpetual care of The Garden

Maintenance and continued operation of The Garden of Reflection require a reliable and secure source of funding which directed us to embark upon an endowment campaign.  Our annual Memorial Golf Classic, along with an annual 5K Run and other fundraising efforts, have been providing resources to fund this endowment to preserve the memorial in perpetuity. A goal of $2 million has been established for the Remembrance Fund and we’ve already secured over $1.2 million, which is currently invested with a professional firm under a long-term capital appreciation strategy.

When the Remembrance Fund is fully funded, earnings generated will provide for the ongoing operation and maintenance of The Garden without touching the principal balance. This will ensure that future generations are able to experience this powerful, moving and beautiful memorial as we do today. Many visit The Garden, coming from near and far, not only to remember 9-11 but also to process the grief and hardships in their own lives. In this way The Garden stands as an uplifting remembrance and beacon of hope for us ALL. It is incumbent upon OUR generation to provide the same experience for our children and grandchildren.

Founding Donors of the construction fund were recognized on a 20-foot long donor plaque at the entrance of the memorial proper. Your name as a proud supporter will be etched on additional plaques for new Remembrance Fund donors representing gifts of $2,500 or more. Your support honors the memory of the thousands that perished on that tragic day, and will preserve the historic significance of the memorial in perpetuity.

We are forever grateful for the countless hours of our dedicated volunteers. Their efforts make it possible that 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to the Remembrance Fund to sustain The Garden in perpetuity. There are no paid positions as everyone volunteers their time to this noble cause! We hope you too will want to help preserve this beautiful 9-11 memorial as we remember those not with us today.
