Fundraising Campaigns

The foundation’s annual fundraising campaign is conducted in the Fall, usually during the months of OCTOBER through DECEMBER.

Additionally, corporate contributions are accepted throughout the year.

The foundation is affiliated with Local Independent Charities of America and participates in workplace giving campaigns through them. Most notably the Combined Federal Campaign and the Connecticut Employee Campaign for charitable giving.

Additionally, the Foundation participates in various fundraising activities such as golf tournaments and other sponsored activities throughout the year.


The foundation has provided over $1.6 million dollars of financial aid to its constituents since 2003.

Of that amount, approximately $810k was in the form of individual assistance. On average we provide 95-100 individual aid grants per year. 

Approximately $547 K was provided to assist Family Readiness Groups. The FRG’s sponsor homecoming celebrations, youth programs, annual Christmas parties and other activities for the families of service members.

An additional $243 K was provided for post-secondary educational scholarships. 

Since the foundation is 100% volunteer supported and we do not pay salaries our administrative expenses are only approximately $106 K and fundraising expenses are under $190 K.


Money is available for:

Weekly care and emergency relief (including food & clothing)

Paying rent, mortgage interest, and utilities

Medical expenses and some dental expenses

Eye examination and eyeglasses, Audiological examination and hearing aids

Funeral expenses

Home health care
