The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, Inc. â was founded, October 23, 2003 to help support surviving U.S. Military children who have lost a parent in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars by providing them with College Grants.
Our College Grant Program has been expanded to include both U.S. Military children and spouses who have either lost a loved one as a result of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars or have a severely disabled parent or spouse who was injured during a deployment to either war.
Our second objective is to help the surviving members of these families with financial assistance. Our goal is to make awards to applicants in need, some whose funds were raised in their particular State that have children under the age of 18, and who are in need of assistance with housing, repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school supplies and other expenses deemed necessary in order to help alleviate their need.
There is no substitute for a parent, but we strive to ease their pain and suffering and honor the memories of our fallen soldiers.
Our awards since 1/05 total $123,542.00 that has provided financial assistance to families with 16 children, College awards to 6 surviving spouses and 3 surviving children. We are pleased to report that our admin/management expenses for the year ending 2006 were 3.6% of total revenues.
