The Veterans Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of the Hot Springs Village Veterans Memorial. The Veterans Memorial Foundation is also responsible for the planning and funding of the long-term care of the memorial infrastructure and landscaping. This memorial care is made possible through funding from direct contributions to the Veterans Memorial Foundation, sale of commemorative paver bricks honoring a veteran, and from funds generated by the Veterans Memorial Endowment Fund.

This year, the Hot Springs Village Rotary Club will host a lunch for all veterans and their families in honor of their service to the United States of America. This lunch will be immediately following the ceremony at the Ponce De Leon Center.
