Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Higher Education, Homeless & Housing, Military & Veterans Organizations, Scholarships, Scholarships & Student Financial Aid, Veterans

Mission: The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund was founded, October 23, 2003 to help support surviving U.S. Military children who have lost a parent in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars by providing them with College Grants. Our College Grant Program has been expanded to include both U.S. Military children and spouses who have either lost a loved one as a result of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars or have a severely disabled parent or spouse who was injured during a deployment to either war. Our second objective is to help the surviving members of these families with financial assistance. Our goal is to award applicants of U.S. Military families that have children under the age of 18, and who are in need of assistance with housing, repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school supplies and other expenses deemed necessary in order to provide them with some support and helpalleviate their need.

Results: We have provided a little over 1,600,000,00 in college, financial and morale, health and well-being assistance to US military surviving and severely disabled veterans and their dependents since our first application was received in 2005.

Programs: Awarded educational scholarships and financial assistance grants to surviving family members of fallen soldiers of the gulf, iraq, and afghanistan wars and administered these grant programs as well to severely disabled veterans who served in either of the wars listed above. Helped the surviving dependents of these families with financial assistance during their time of hardship. Their goal is to help these children (18 yrs of age or younger) whom are in need of housing, home repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school and sports team equipment and supplies. Also, other expenses deemed necessary during their time of need.

My son lost his father in Iraq October 6 2003 when he was four years old. he and i were not married i myself was in the military and moved around alot. The fund treated us like family during the first years of the war single unwed mothers where not treated very kindly by the military THIS organization was the ONLY one who treated my son like a son of a fallen hero. Darian "DJ" was a shy kid really didn't talk much Rebecca Campbell the CEO of the organization would call him and talk to him often the fund even arranged for him to go to a grief camp and meet and bond with children like him he opened up about his dad made friends and the MOST special thing was arranging for him too visit his father's grave in New Jersey and see his grandfather hadn't seen him IN OVER six years and hasn't seen him since the fund blessed us his grandfather who lives in Peru only comes to the United states twice a year for veterans doctors appointments. as a 90% disabled veteran there was NO way i could have made that happen now at 15 he is an honor student outgoing young man with dreams of going to the university of Georgia to become a lawyer.i pray the WONDERFUL Americans of THIS great land will continue to help so these babies can continue to make their fallen heros proud. GOD knows where we would be without this fund our home was robbed they TOOK everything EVEN our food i didn't know what to DO we were sleeping with friends for fear of the robbers coming back. This fund gave us food helped us find shelter suffering from PTSD, lung problems, and anemic I myself was fading this fund saved our lives. GOD bless the ones who give and those who want to give but can't FREEDOM ISN'T FREE IT COMES WITH A PRICE 2LT RICHARD TORRES PAID THAT PRICE! !!

We are so grateful for your help! If it weren't for your organization our son would not have been able to get the proper orthodontal work he so desperately needed. We called everywhere and no one would help and many charities would not even return our calls. Your organization not only paid the $4000.00, but spent time making sure I myself was taking care of my own well-being. Having a husband who is 100% disabled and a son with so many of his own needs had taken a toll on me, but you gave me suggestions on methods or relaxation and even offered to send me a care package with bath salts, essential oils, etc. just so I could relax. The CFSRF really takes care of their families with love and kindness and doesn't shut you out. Thank you we are so very grateful and blessed to be part of your family!

My Dad died in 2006 when his Mgator hit an Ied. As difficult and sad as his loss was, It would not be the last tragic thing to happen to my family. A few years after my Father died, my Mom would become sick. Then I was diagnosed with a tumor near my brainstem. My Mom and I have continued to fight for our lives for what feels like an eternity. Mrs. Campbell has never stopped helping us, ever. She has done so much for my family. This organization has become part of my family. Words fail to express my gratitude and the love I have for Becky. She is one in a million. We love you Mrs. Campbell

Ms. Becky and the CFSRF has been an amazing entity in my and my daughter's life in the past 10 years. The foundation helped my daughter and I after Katrina washed away my entire house a year after I lost my husband in the war on terrorism. They have also been a tremendous blessing for my child during Christmas. She truly tries to help everyone she can. God bless her and this foundation.

After my husband died in Afghanistan I became disabled after multiple car accidents and was left to raise my daughter on my own, I lost my job and couldn't pay the bills. My daughter and I had to go to the local food pantry for them to give us food weekly, I was behind on all the bills... I never received the life insurance given to most widows after death of the husbands. My daughter and I were barley making it by until I found this blessing... Becky and Monica have been exactly that nothing but a BLESSING..They paid all my bills I was behind on so I can buy food and other necessities we needed. They even helped us with our Thanksgiving dinner!! They didn't stop there and gave my daughter the best Christmas ever. Without them helping us out I'm sure we would've been in a much different position. I couldn't thank you enough. God bless you Becky and Monica. I'm sure my husband was smiling down from heaven for helping his girls out.

The Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund has been absolutely amazing! I lost my father at a very young age during OEF. Since that time, I have had to prioritize working in order to help support my family. While conducting a web search, I stumbled across the website for CFSRF, which seemed almost too good to be true. I reached out via email and received such a heart-warming response. Each ensuing encounter with the CFSRF, and Mrs. Campbell in particular, has been unbelievably pleasant. With the assistance and support of CFSRF, I have been very fortunate to be able to continue my academic pursuit of a biomedical degree as well as continued personal growth here at NCCU. For that opportunity, I want to personally thank the CFSRF for their kindness and willingness to help me achieve my academic goals. Glancing at some of the other postings, I see that the good deeds performed by the CFSRF ranges far and wide. Please continue the outstanding work. Thank you immensely!!!

I am so thankful for Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund. Without them my mortgage wouldn't have been able to be paid and our children wouldn't have had a Christmas. Last year my husband had a mental break down and ended up in a psych ward right after Thanksgiving. They were there for me and my kids while he was away when we had no one else.
