Our Mission

De Leon Memorial, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer, organization, established in July 2015. The purpose for which the corporation is organized is to fundraise, conceptualize, build, install and dedicate a memorial in the name of Martín de León and Patricia de la Garza, the founders of the City and County of Victoria. This memorial will be dedicated to honor the multi-cultural contributions the founding of Victoria had on the colonization of Texas from the period of settlement up to the point of statehood.

The De Leon Memorial statue will serve as a historical regional focal point in the establishment of this recognition.

501(3)c status has been applied for.
