Remembering 9/11

On this solemn anniversary, we pause to recognize the heroism displayed by so many in response to 9/11.

From Serving Country to Serving Community

Generations of American military heroes have sacrificed so much in defense of our nation’s freedom. While the settings may be different, like our military heroes, our first responders are asked to cast aside fear and put their personal safety on the line in order to protect others.


This Independence Day, join us in honoring the heroes who ensure America remains the land of the free and home of the brave.


All of our accomplishments are because of your support. Thank you for seven incredible years.

Our newest program, Snowball Express, celebrates our fallen military heroes and supports those left behind. We’d like to introduce you to a few of our families.

Eleven years after their first performance at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band made their return. Once again it was a trip of a lifetime, and one Gary and the band will never forget.


After seven years, an organization becomes eligible to receive a rating from Charity Navigator based on two essential criteria: financial health and accountability/transparency. The Gary Sinise Foundation is humbled and honored to have received exceptionally high ratings in both. 

We are thrilled and honored to bring the children of our fallen military heroes to Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida this December. These families will have an opportunity to bond with the only people who can truly understand their loss: one another.

Today, we salute our dear friends at the USO as they get ready to celebrate their 77th Anniversary. It has been a privilege to work beside this special organization for so many years.

This year, from coast to coast, our nation has faced so much loss, so much destruction, and so much fear. But I am always inspired by the resiliency of the American people to carry on.
