Our Impact

The Stories

After weeks of dealing with round-the-clock response and recovery efforts, a mix of emotions, and everything that comes with handling one of the biggest natural disasters in U.S. history, our office needed something to look forward to. Your generous gift allowed many of our first responders to have a better Thanksgiving as many of them also lost their homes to Harvey.

Upon returning from my first tour in Afghanistan, the loss of more brothers than I’d like to remember was taking its toll. I saw a poster that the Lt. Dan Band was performing in my area and decided to attend. I like to believe that one show kept me from doing the unthinkable. Thank you for all you do.

Soaring Valor gave me a sense of pride knowing how much people appreciate the contribution I made to my made the sunset of my life a complete success.

Words cannot convey how grateful I am to you for hosting my father on your Soaring Valor trip. We will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives. Thank you for your program and for honoring my dad in a way that I never could.

My personal mission is what led to the founding of the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2011, and with the help of supporters like you, we will continue to expand this mission in support of our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders and their loved ones, while upholding the importance of keeping our country strong by taking care of those who serve.

While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation's defenders, we can always do a little more.

Our programs and projects have certainly made a difference in many lives, but there’s much more work to be done. I encourage you to browse our website, look into our programs, view the many great videos that show us in action, read about some of the heroes and families we have had the privilege to support, and consider making a contribution to help us do even more.

On behalf of all of us here at the Gary Sinise Foundation, thank you.
