Who We Are

 

For decades, the United States and the United Kingdom have shared a special relationship unique among the countries of this world.  From the alliances of two world wars to joint peacekeeping and humanitarian missions around the world, our nations have had and continue to share more than a commitment to freedom and democracy - we have also pledged to send our men and women in uniform to secure these principles.

 

Why We Need Your Help

Today's conflict and peacekeeping needs around the world are taking an ever-growing toll on our service men and women and their families. From physical injuries to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), to coping with loss and lives challenged by the devastating effects of war, our soldiers and their families need our support more than ever. Governments and military agencies are strained under increasing need and shrinking available resources.

As a result, many of our service men and women and their families continue to suffer because of their service on our behalf.  Our goal at The Soldiers Fund is to provide the necessary support and resources to soldiers and their families in need.

Our grants provide hardship relief, mobility assistance, home modifications, educational support, annuities, home care fees, respite funding, and survivor and family financial support. 

With the support of individuals, corporations and trusts, we are able to provide lifetime financial support, and raise awareness about the increasingly complex issues our soldiers and their families face.

What We Do and How We Do It

We organize a variety of special events ranging from an annual appeal to our growing number of supporters/donors (last year individual donations ranged from $50 to $5000). Also collections at military re-enactments e.g. Concord Bridge and Lexington Green; marathons; benefit concerts; and our first online auction of 'Once-in-a-Lifetime, Priceless Experiences' which consists of occasions ranging from a private visit to the House of Lords (London) to a day's driven pheasant shooting for 8 guns in Cornwall (South West England). We are very receptive to new ideas for raising money for this most worthy cause.
