About our Campaign
Welcome to the 93 cents for Flight 93 website. We are working toward raising funds to help build the permanent memorial for the heroes of Flight 93. Our goal is for every person to donate 93 cents for our cause.
The Flight 93 National Memorial is the nation’s tribute to the 40 passengers and crew members aboard United Flight 93 who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. A $30 million capital campaign, directed by the National Park Foundation, will support the construction of the memorial as the central feature of a new National Park near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The campaign is partnering with the HALO Foundation (Akron, OH) to develop a special intergenerational fundraising program among students to connect these young people to the Flight 93 National Memorial through service and charity. The president of the HALO Foundation, Sharon Deitrick, is a member of the national Steering Committee.
HALO’s skill at bringing together children, adolescents, young adults, and senior citizens allows the story of Flight 93 to be shared amongst many, thus creating awareness that is necessary to bring the Memorial to life. By exploring and creatively expressing the concepts of courage, heroism, and patriotism , the school programs and events enable students to participate in the awareness and fundraising campaign.
