THE STORY:

The Apollo Veterans Initiative is raising funds for Memorial Day, which will be donated to The Children of Fallen Patriots organization. 


About Children of Fallen Patriots

MISSION 

CFP's mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. CFP is dedicated to serving the families of service members from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans Affairs. 


VISION

The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every child of a fallen patriot receives all necessary college funding. 

     -CFP believes a college education is the single most important gift we can give these children. 

     -CFP believes this is an important investment in the future of America. 

     -CFP believes this is one of the best ways we can honor those who died defending our country. 


HISTORY 

In 1989, five days before Christmas, Sergeant William Delaney Gibbs from the 7th Infantry Division was killed in action during Operation Just Cause in Panama, leaving behind a young wife and an unborn daughter. CFP's Founder and CEO, David Kim, served with Sergeant Gibbs and was inspired by his sacrifice and never forgot about Sergeant Gibb’s or his daughter.


David Kim returned to the United States and founded Children of Fallen Patriots in 2002. Since 2002, Children of Fallen Patriots has grown in its mission and vision to extend peace of mind through college scholarships to Gold Star families in all 50 states, in all branches of the military. 


THE NEED

Research conducted by The Lucas Group on behalf of Children of Fallen Patriots found that nearly 20,000 dependents have been left behind by troops killed in the line of duty over the past 35 years. Many surviving families struggle to make ends meet with 63% of surviving spouses making less than $50,000 per year. With no central repository of information from which to find these children, the organization works to find each and every one of these children to assist them in their growing success.
