Welcome to Operation Family Fund. Here you will find a little history and information about the organization, what services we have available for eligible recipients, and information on how you can help us help those in need.
After the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the United States military entered into a war against global terrorism. On October 7, 2001, the President began the U.S. response in the War on Terrorism with the stroke of his pen to seize terrorists’ financial assets and disrupt their fundraising network. Unlike previous conflicts, this war is being fought on both domestic and foreign soil. The military response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States was assigned the name Operation Enduring Freedom.
Operation Family Fund is a private non-profit charitable organization sponsored by private donations. The organization was incorporated in the State of California and has it’s headquarters in Ridgecrest, California.
Operation Family Fund is an IRS 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation
To ensure that your donation goes to eligible families, not to unnecessary overhead, Operation Family Fund was founded with private donations and is run by volunteers. There are no paid staff. Mandatory and discretionary overhead are paid by volunteers and donors for that purpose.
We are a private, non-profit, volunteer, public benefit corporation. We are committed to ensuring that all available resources are used to assist eligible members, caregivers and families of members of Military and Civilian personnel who have been severely disabled as a part of Operation Enduring and Iraqi Freedom both domestically and abroad to achieve financial self-sufficiency and find solutions to short term and long term needs.
Operation Family Fund has set a financial goal over a 20 year period to disburse $5,000,000 for eligible members and families. This goal can only happen by your generosity.
