Over the years many honorees have brought family members or guests with them to enjoy the event. We have been asked if we cover any of those costs? We provide transportation and hotel accommodations for the honoree. However, we do cover the Awards Banquet admission fee of $99 for the honoree and one guest. Also, the hotel allows for up to four per room at no additional cost to the guest or Foundation.
Who pays for this event, are there any hidden fees? Officers and supporters of the National Medal of Honor Foundation provide a majority of the contributions. Corporate and organizational sponsors also contribute to the event and there is a $99 fee to attend. There are no fees required of the honoree or the facility to participate. However, as a non-profit, we do appreciate all contributions, (which are tax deductible).
