From September 1 through October 31, Crosby donated $500 to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation for every Crosby and ACCO training event hosted in the US, with a goal of raising $25,000. Together with our business partners, end users, and employees, we are thrilled to announce we raised a total of $50,000 for the Fallen Patriots in 2022.
Thank you to all of our campaign sponsors, generous private donors, everyone who participated in a training event, and those who took the User's Guide for Lifting online course in September and October. We greatly appreciate your support of this worthy cause.

The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. 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. According to the foundation, $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 $55 million in total assistance to more than 2,300 military children with more than 1,100 graduates.
