Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer.

Your question did not require a live phone call; I can give you a quick answer right here and save you the cost of the call.. YES. At the conclusion of your dedication ceremony you may certainly treat your donors to lunch. It would be considered "participating in activities of a patriotic nature." The erection of your memorial and hosting a luncheon are all within the "patriotic activities" sphere of approved activities. The distinction is that these donors are your guests, and all expenses must be borne by members of your organization. You would not be able to invite the general public to a luncheon and pay for everyone's lunch that showed up. That would be outside the scope of your exempt activities.

If you need more info, just let me know. I know how much work it is to complete a project like this. I was involved in one about 12 years ago. Thank you for your service, and thank you for using Just Answer.
