Central Florida Chapter

About the Chapter

Launched in August 2020, the Gary Sinise Foundation Central Florida Chapter was the first of many chapters that will extend the philanthropy of our Founder and Chairman, Gary Sinise​, and the footprint of the Gary Sinise Foundation.

Florida is home to the third-largest veteran population in the country, with more than 1.5 million retired service members. In Central Florida, its counties include nearly 1 million veterans.

The Central Florida Chapter, like those to come in other regions across the country, complements the efforts of the Gary Sinise Foundation, catalyzing a greater impact in the lives of our nation's heroes and their families.

"With our very first chapter in Orlando, we are excited to extend our impact at a regional level. Serving, honoring, and raising the spirits of our nation's defenders ​and their families is the heartbeat of everything we do at the Foundation. By enlisting the support of ​communities across the country, particularly where future regional chapters may be located, we'll be able to expand our outreach even further."
