Veterans Relief Fund

The program is funded solely by donations from people and groups who wish to help our local veterans. All donations are used to help Gladwin County Veterans with emergent needs such as home heating, electricity, food, clean drinking water and other health and safety needs. You can help a local veteran by donating at the link below.

Gladwin County Veterans Memorial Fund

The Gladwin County Veterans Memorial is in dire condition. Rather than spending large sums of money to repair the current memorial, a new Veterans Memorial project has been started. The County Board of Commissioners have approved the use of the property on the East side of the Court House to use for this purpose. This new Veterans Memorial will be more of a small park-like setting with veterans from each service era being represented in its own display.

Any donations made will be used solely for this purpose. Any remaining funds will be placed into a perpetual care fund for the memorial.
