Children of Fallen Patriots

Fallen Patriots provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. After government programs, the average shortfall in college funding for a child of a veteran that was killed or wounded in service is $25,000. Supported by its loyal distributors and end users throughout, The Crosby Group will donate a portion of every US sale to this honorable cause.

The sobering truth

Approximately 25,000 children have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. Of those, 97% of casualties are men, leaving behind single mothers to care for their families, and 60% report having trouble making ends meet.

The foundation said that $625 million is needed nationwide to cover the gap between government assistance and the actual cost of a degree. 

Since 2002, Fallen Patriots has provided more than $46 million in total assistance to more than 2,000 military children with close to 900 graduates. Learn more >>

 

Together, we can help.

Every time a worker in, the oil & gas, construction, and manufacturing industries across the US use a Crosby Group product, they can know that they are doing a small part to help secure a better future for children of veterans that were killed or wounded.
