The Need is Great. The Time is Now.

Twenty years ago, America made a promise to these students. The Families of Freedom Fund is here to help make sure that promise is kept. Our commitment to the students and their families remains steadfast. They could use your support now more than ever.

President Bill Clinton

I was honored and humbled to help raise funds after 9/11 for students in families affected by that terrible tragedy. Today, 3,000 more students need the support of the Families of Freedom Fund. As Americans, I believe it is our duty to make their futures brighter through education. I hope you’ll join me.

Senator Bob Dole

We will never forget. We simply can’t forget about the children whose lives were forever changed because of 9/11. The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund has been supporting our families for nearly 20 years and it will be our honor to continue that support until the last of our students fulfill their educational dreams.
