At the Gary Sinise Foundation, we serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities. We address our defenders’ complex and ever-changing needs before, during and after service.
Uplifting the spirits of our heroes is at the very heartbeat of everything we do. We work each day to keep our heroes and their families who sacrifice along with them, strong in their greatest times of need and darkest moments, ensuring they have what they need to deal with their complex physical and invisible wounds from their service. It’s up to us to give them comfort. To give them support. To give them hope.
The Foundation’s mission and purpose is inspired by President Calvin Coolidge’s famous quote, “A nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten”.
