Reviews for Travis Manion Foundation

The leadership and staff of this organization are extremely motivated and by example epitomize the logo "if not me then who!" As I volunteer I am totally onboard supporting the Character Does Matter Program and have seen first hand positive results in several interactions with students of the "next generation" of America's leaders. Travis Manion Foundation events exude patriotism and appreciation for those who serve... military, police, fireman, first responders. I encourage you to get involved with it.

I am a volunteer with the Travis Manion Foundation. This organization truly inspires the community to look outside themselves and their personal challenges to address community issues together. Our service members, veterans, and their families epitomize selfless service and a commitment to our country and allowing them to share their personal stories motivates others to do the same in their own unique way. An awesome team with an AWESOME mission!

As a Gold Star father, the Travis Manion Foundation was one of the few organizations to reach out and then maintain the connection with both me and other members of my family. As a volunteer for the organization, I find their messages of 'Character Does Matter', 'If not me, then who?', and 'Honor the fallen by challenging the living' to be core values that moves people forward, no matter what their situation in life. They understand grief, honor, commitment, and sacrifice. Glad to be considered a part of their team.

After the military, I still had the desire to serve my community but didn’t know how to put that idea into action. I was introduced to the Travis Manion Foundation through my college's veteran association and was told of opportunities to join their Character Does Matter leadership development program. Immediately I was interested in the prospect of using my military experience to work with high school students on developing their own leadership skills throughout a fun, 10-week course. I have now been a part of the program for three iterations and look forward to continuing my volunteering with TMF. Not only do I get to serve my community but by working with TMF in their CDM program and their 9/11 Heroes run, I get to continue to build my own character and fill a desire to serve that was left vacant after leaving service. TMF’s staff is top notch, the Mantra “If not me, then who…” is something that can resonate with anyone, and the organization as a whole is second to none.

Not only do they help veterans and families of the fallen, they reach out to our youth and motivate them and build thier character through the story of Travis and Brendan. I have enjoyed working with TMF and look forward to doing more.

Their "If not me, then who..." motto has changed the way I think every day. What a wonderful way to honor the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

I was privileged to take part in a mission expedition to Guatemala. In just over three days we changed the life of a family of 7 as we built them their first real home and provided them with an Ecostove. Survivors and family members on the trip were able to introduce their fallen soldier to the family through photographs and stories. They were able to continue the legacy of that person through their work and donations. Truly an amazing adventure!
