The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
New York City's Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum has established the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to assist "military families that have paid the ultimate price: the loss of a loved one in defense of our country."
The IFH Fund is endowed by some of the country's leading philanthropists, one of whom is Arnold Fisher. As he recently wrote in the New York Post:
Nothing can compensate them for the loss of a husband or wife, a father or mother. But we can show them that they are not forgotten, and that we are with them through the trying times they must now endure . . .We will provide financial support to these families, both American and British, in the form of a $10,000 gift, with no strings attached. This support is intended to help these families with any immediate or long-term financial needs . . . In addition, as the result of a special gift from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous, we will provide an additional gift of $1,000 to the families of all U.S. military personnel lost in Iraq, regardless of whether they were married or had children.
These gifts are meant to assist those in need rather than generate publicity so, as is mentioned on the IFH Fund website, the funding is discreetly granted and "without fanfare." And, amazingly, 100% of donations to the fund go to the military families.
"We are committed to doing all we can to help America's military family," Arnold Fisher writes, "and the military family of our close friends in Great Britain, who have shared with us the burden of the fight for freedom. Allow us all to never forget the cost of freedom, and the families who have sacrificed for it."
