Help the children of solders who gave it all


Operation Purple

Camp for Children of Wounded Service Members As a pilot program in 2007, the Operation Purple camp program will provide additional help for kids who are going through a potentially difficult adjustment—an injury to a parent. This specialized, dedicated camp will incorporate additional mental health support into the daily camp activities—without losing the focus on fun!

The Wounded Warrior Wives Project

While the military sees to their physical health, the key to the short- and long-term stability and full restoration of our wounded warriors lies in the support of their spouses," Meredith Leyva, founder of Operation Homefront, said. "It is the spouses, not the wounded warriors, who are most responsible for key family issues such as financial viability and seeking assistance."

The Wounded Warrior Wives Project is an opportunity for spouses to get together and really discuss issues surrounding their servicemembers' recovery, Leyva said. And though the title specifically mentions wives, "we are certainly open to everyone," she said.

Chief Warrant Officer Hazelgrove was killed in combat in Iraq. A trust fund has been set up to benefit CW2 Hazelgrove's children. To contribute to the fund make checks payable to "Benefit of Brian Hazelgrove" and mail to:

Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund

CFSRF is a 501 (c) (3) organization that was founded October 23, 2003 by Rebecca Campbell and is based in the D.C. Metropolitan area. We were founded in order to provide support to surviving U.S. Military children and spouses that have lost a loved one in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars or those that have sustained a serious disability.

Our objectives are to help U.S. Military children and spouses with College Grants as well as provide financial assistance to those families in need of help with housing, utilities, food and clothing. Often, when a loss occurs in these families what was a two person income becomes one. The financial hardships placed on these families are very difficult to deal with. Their lives are devastated and forever changed. New: A event the help raise funds for scholarships.

Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, Inc.

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, Inc., is a one of a kind non-profit Veteran Service Organization offering hope, healing, comfort and care to thousands of American armed forces families facing the death of a loved one each year. TAPS receives absolutely no government funding, but through the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, all families faced with a death of one serving in the Armed Forces receive information about TAPS and our military survivor programs.

The Fallen Patriot Fund

The Fallen Patriot Fund of The Mark Cuban Foundation was established to help families of U.S. military personnel who were killed or seriously injured during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Financial resources are vital to enhancing the sustainability of the family unit who has suffered a loss because their loved one sacrificed him/herself for freedom. Within that group, grant recipients will be selected in accordance with criteria established by The Mark Cuban Foundation. All proceeds will be disbursed.

Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund

The mission of Freedom Alliance is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States, and promoting a strong national defense. One of the ways we carry out our mission is by providing financial assistance in the form of Freedom Alliance Scholarships to deserving sons and daughters of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines who have been killed or permanently disabled (100% VA disability rating) in the line of duty, or who are currently classified as a Prisoner of War (POW) or Missing in Action (MIA).

Armed Forces Family Scholarship & Assistance Fund

The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation undertook a special initiative to cover eligible children whose parent was killed in the line of duty between 1 January 2003 and 15 July 2003. The goal of the Armed Forces Family Scholarship & Assistance Fund (AFFSAF) was to provide scholarships for the higher education of children of all fallen service personnel in the Iraqi and Afghanistan war operations.

100% of those donations received supports this fund. Every dollar raised does directly to military families because there are no administrative fees incurred by this all-volunteer foundation.
