Paying Homage to those families who made the ultimate sacrifice

The work that we, or any other nonprofit organization, perform is a very good reason for you to be motivated to open your wallet and help. But let’s be real. That’s not the only reason.


Managing taxes is, or least should be, very high on your list of things needed to effectively manage your money. For the most part, your money is your business, and we don’t want anything to do with your business. 


Please consult your tax professional if you have any questions about the tax benefits of donating to any charity.


If you wish to donate any securities to us, please call our offices so that your donations can be handled with the utmost confidentiality and care. Our phone number is listed on our contact page.

This is who we help. People just like this woman, who lost her husband and the family's primary breadwinner. She doesn't want much, just to know that her sacrifice is not lost on the people of the United States. And she'd like to have something to help her move on. So, we help her go back to college.


If you donate a dollar to us, you probably want to know how much she gets out of that dollar. But before you ask that question, ask yourself who paid for the website you're reading; ask how you learned about us, if the message wasn't free; and ask yourself who will pay the phone company she and others like her can calls us?  What it takes to run an operation like ours is just as important as the work we do. We can give her 97% of your dollar, but then, first, she would only get that, not the $10,000 we want to give her, and second, she'd be the only one we helped. And aren't there so very many more people we need to help?


We try to keep our overhead low. We pay the same rates for electricity as you do; we negotiate the best deals on Internet services, phone services, printing services, and garbage collection services. And all our staff members are volunteers.


Just like when you hire a kid to mow your lawn or shovel your snow, you get what you pay for. We understand this, and it is with this that we keep working. Because she deserves it. Her husband gave his life so you and I could continue to be free.


And we all know - freedom isn't free.


The only thing that is free is how much we here at the GSRF love Gold Star Families and doing good for them. We are all unpaid volunteers.


If you'd like to volunteer and work with us, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email or call.
