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 2,400,000,00 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.

CFSRF is a wonderful organization of caring individuals that want to do everything in their power to help meet the needs of military families who have lost a service member or are otherwise affected by combat disabilities. In our case, their assistance has been through a gracious scholarship offering to allow my daughter to pursue a future to brighten the lives of others and hopefully someday help future heroes get back on their feet through Physical Therapy. But please read the other postings as CFSRF clearly supports our veteran families through many other hardships that could have directed their lives down a completely different path if it weren't for their help. Monica has been a pleasure to work with, and portrays the heart of the organization who genuinely cares about those they support. If you are able, please help to support CFSRF financially so they are able to continue stepping in to make a difference at these critical times in the lives of families who have already given of themselves for their country.

After losing 50+ Marines in the battle of Fallujah, iraq many of us felt lost and confused about how to deal with PTSD without our brothers to help us cope. We left the Marines and returned to our home towns spread out across the country. It felt like our family had been broken up from a bad divorce or something. A few of the men put together a reunion, but without funding it wasn't going to be much, and few could afford to go. CFSRF stepped up and provided the funding and organization to make our reunion unforgettable! They even flew many of the disabled Marines to the event (myself included). Miss Becky became our adopted battalion mom and gave all of us hope, pride, and esprit de corps that so many of us needed. She has helped us reestablish our bonds and heal the invisible wounds of war. We are grateful and forever in her debt! Semper Fi Becky

Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund provided airfare for me to attend the 9th annual 1/3 Fallujah Veterans Reunion in St. Petersburg Florida. I hadn't seen any of my veteran brothers in those nine years and it was very therapeutic to reunite with them. If it weren't for this organization I wouldn't have been able to go. Thanks so much for caring about us!

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.

They are the most generous organization I've dealt with. When my best friend from the Marines died this year they paid for my plane ticket so I could attend the funeral and pay my respects to his family. They are an enormous part of our Fallujah reunions and I can't thank them enough.

I was having a difficult time after returning home from deployment and began to isolate once depression sat in. Feeling alone and misunderstood by those who hadn't been in the service; family and friends I began to drink and slowly spiraled into a deeper depression and wanted to give up. A brother I had served with encouraged me to go to the VA and I finally did only to discover that I was one in thousands waiting in line for help. After initiating contact with them and filing the numerous forms they required I still am waiting for help. My brother reached out to me again and then asked if I would be willing to speak with Becky at Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, I finally agreed. She called and after breaking down the barriers I had put up I finally realized that not only did have choices, but I had someone who I had never met reach out, listen and offer me solid answers and good choices so that I could move forward with my life. I began school again and am just recently beginning to spend time with close family and friends. She said "one day at a time", and that's what I am doing. Everyday I get closer to realizing just one dream and doing my best to be positive is a day closer to survival. Thank you there really are no words to express my gratitude for this organization and Becky there have been so many doors that were closed not just on me, but many of my other brothers. I hope to be able to give a little back in the future to this compassionate and heartfelt organization.
