Colonial Flag Foundation, creators of the Healing Field Flag memorial, is a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation with a mission to bring patriotism, civic education and issues awareness to American and International communities at a grass roots level. Our programs are catalysts to volunteerism, education, awareness, unification, fundraising, and healing. It is our mission to provide volunteer, community host organizations with resources, guidance and branding through our established network and legacy of connecting reputable service organizations, local businesses and charities for the purpose of empowering individuals to make a better world one community at a time.
Each year, the Colonial Flag Foundation provides support and guidance to hundreds of organizations across the globe who have chosen to exhibit their patriotism and increase awareness for a multitude of social issues by presenting one of our programs. The programs encourage local volunteerism and service. The number of people participating in a finished Healing Field alone is often in the thousands. The themes of the Fields differ and promote healing after a local or national disaster, honor military and first responders, and raise awareness for important social issues like: human rights, hunger, literacy, domestic violence and child abuse. Each community customizes the program to meet the specific needs of their individual communities. Recently, the scope and reach of the Foundation has grown to include outreach programs to promote civic learning in schools and communities. Volunteers are instrumental in the successful implementation of Healing Field events and educational outreach programs. We are in our 8th year and have thousands of volunteers to thank for this acheivement!
