Help Build the Permanent Memorial

Tucson’s January 8th Memorial Foundation is a non-profit 501c(3) organization (Tax ID# 45-4083646). Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by current law and one’s personal tax circumstances.

How Donations Make A Difference

The Permanent Memorial:

Tucson’s January 8th Memorial Foundation currently is working with City and County officials to finalize an appropriate site in and around the Old Pima County Courthouse that will allow for civic activities, such as those which inspired the January 8th “Congress on Your Corner” event.   Once the final site is determined, a public process, with significant opportunity for public engagement, will be conducted and a formal RFQ solicitation for a qualified design team of artists and engineers will be issued to gather design concepts for the memorial.  Your contribution enables us to pay for design schematics and also helps fund the public involvement process.


The Stories:

A team of local media professionals is working on collecting and preserving the important stories from individuals directly involved and impacted by the tragedy.  These are stories from survivors, first responders, medical personnel and community leaders’ who reflect upon and share not only their first-hand experiences, but also the lessons they learned from the tragedy.  Your contribution will ensure that these stories are made available on our website in the near future.




After the memorial materials have been archived or transformed into art, curators and exhibit design professionals will tell the story of what happened on that historic day.  Your contribution enables us to create a lasting legacy for future generations – a legacy that not only pays tribute to the enduring democratic principles of free speech and the right of assembly, but honors those that perished in pursuit of these ideals on Jan. 8, 2011.
