Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. ~Helen Keller
Wreath sponsorships is the most popular way to partner with the Wreaths Across America mission. There are several sponsorship packages that go along with your sponsorship amount. A wreaths sponsorship is $15.00. With this sponsorship you can designate which participating cemetery your wreath sponsorship will be placed at. With over 1,300 participating cemeteries, as well as, Arlington National Cemetery we can find a location that fits your needs.
Arlington National Cemetery has a unique set up that allows sponsors to allocate their wreath sponsorship to a designated section of the cemetery. This allows your volunteers to have a meeting point at the cemetery and is also great for group pictures within the cemetery. With over 100 sections at Arlington National Cemetery there are ranges of sponsorship amounts.
Sponsorship packages are available upon request for your review. However, we understand that every company is different so our packages serve as guidelines and we strive to work with you to give you the very best experience.

"Volunteers are not paid~not because they are worthless, but because they are PRICELESS!"
We take our mission seriously: when you donate to Wreaths Across America, your money sponsors a wreath first. $0.86 of every dollar donated goes toward wreath sponsorships, shipping costs not covered by our trucking partners, and fundraising group paybacks. WAA operates on the remaining margin, keeping overhead low and paying wages to just eight full-time employees; our Executive Director and Chairman take zero salary and are 100% committed to the mission.
In-kind contributions are essential to making any non-profit function. With Wreaths Across America we rely heavily on in-kind contributions, whether professional services, promotional/advertising partnerships, and many others. The biggest in-kind donations come in the form of donated trucking. Wreaths Across America could not function without the support of the trucking industry. WAA has 1,300+ participating cemeteries in all 50 states and the trucking industry gets ALL of the wreath sponsorships to their rightful cemeteries. In 2016, more than 170 trucking companies delivered more than 359 loads of wreaths...as the mission grows so does the need for in-kind contributions.
MOBILE EDUCATION TRAILER
In 2016, Chevrolet graciously gifted Wreaths Across America with a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD and money towards a trailer. Wreaths Across America has had a vision of having a mobile education vehicle to go on a national tour promoting not only the mission to REMEMBER*HONOR*TEACH, but also bring communities together to learn of the service and sacrifices that have been made to ensure our freedoms.
The 48 foot trailer will be unveiled in the 2017 Convoy to Arlington. This fully functional trailer is equipped with 2 exterior television, four extended slide outs, four awnings, an interior museum, and a 20 person interactive movie theater.
WAA would like to see the trailer on a constant tour of the country spreading the mission with a minimum of 40 stops. The vision is to be able to bring locations groups, fundraising groups, community groups, veterans, active duty and children together to highlight generations of service to our country and share stories of the past and present.
