The Great Overland Station is a valuable community asset that continues to grow and develop. We have many goals yet to accomplish. We work constantly toward being a community treasure that all are proud of and that tourists and students feel compelled to visit. Our operations budget is supported entirely by "Friends of the Station" memberships, admissions, facility rentals, sponsorships and donations. Support can be made by purchasing an engraved brick or "Friends of the Station" membership, volunteering, or making a donation in the form of cash, stocks, mutual funds, in-kind products and services, wills and bequests, charitable gift annuities, or life insurance charitable remainder trusts. Donations made at a sustaining level of support may include naming opportunities, or recognition as a program sponsor or business partner.
Volunteering at The Great Overland Station is a rewarding experience. Being part of a volunteer team gives one the opportunity to meet visitors from all over the United States and to share your stories and knowledge about the museum and our exhibits. As a volunteer you will meet and work with other wonderful volunteers who share a similar interest. Regular volunteers received a free family membership. CLICK HERE to become a volunteer!
An engraved brick is the perfect way to memorialize a loved one, honor a veteran or recognize an employee/business partner. Leave a lasting legacy to honor those important to you and help support the Great Overland Station and All Veterans Memorial with the purchase of an engraved personalized brick.
