Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Greatest Generations Foundation is an international IRS 501(C)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization dedicated to serving U.S. and allied war veterans. Our primary mission is to fund programs for veterans to return to their former battlefields. These journeys provide the veteran an opportunity to achieve some measure of closure on their war experience, to share the gratitude of liberated peoples, and to educate others on their individual experiences in a broader historical context. These courageous groups of veterans include Generations of men and women who fought in World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.

Program 1

Veterans Programs

T.G.G.F. is dedicated to honoring veterans for their timeless and selfless dedication to duty, which has ensured our freedoms that endure today. As the number of surviving veterans dwindles with each passing day, we owe them more than immeasurable gratitude; we must honor them by preserving their legacy. And for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we must never forget the ideals that they sacrificed so much for. As T.G.G.F. continues its mission to return these veterans to their fields of battle, it serves as a persistent reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on human lives.

Youth and Community

Integral to preserving the legacy of these heroic men and women, T.G.G.F. has instituted educational programs to provide a dynamic experiential learning resource serving the needs of teachers and students from grade school through the post-graduate level. Our programs allow students from all backgrounds to explore the values and beliefs—the universal concepts—that Americans and their Allies embraced during wartime. These programs are designed to educate both young and old about the extraordinary history of sacrifice, and the noble accomplishments of those who served, while remembering those who gave the full measure of devotion for their nation.

Program 3

Historical Preservation

T.G.G.F Historical Preservation program is also dedicated to documenting and producing programming based on the veterans’ accounts of their war experiences. These interviews go beyond the usual dates and places recounted. We honor them by allowing them to offer all the facets of their personal experience, often with details that will fascinate students of all ages and interests. In many cases, the veterans reveal stories they have never shared, creating a truly profound experience for all involved.

Funding Needs

TGGF needs financial support to fund the operation of its patriotic education programs for youth and the community. These programs are dependent on the involvement of WWII veterans whose ranks are regrettably thinning each and every day.

STATEMENT FROM THE President and CEO

"When I founded this organization nearly ten years ago, I had no idea how extensive it would grow, or how many veterans we would be able to serve in this time. Throughout the past 12 months, have expanded our programming to include notable organizations such as the Ohio State University, World Presidents, and the Young President Organizations to participate in the foundation's programs.

Additionally, as we continue to move forward with our mission to honor veterans through remembrance and education, we are proud to announce our partnership with the National World War II Commemoration Commission. Through this collaboration our two groups will organize and coordinate programs to take veterans all over the globe to commemorate various 70th anniversaries of World War II battles. Through the Commission and our ongoing efforts, we will give the World War II generation the grand send-off they deserve while transitioning into programs for Korea and Vietnam.

Finally, our support on the ground is growing strong; The Greatest Generations Foundation is now making a positive difference in the lives of more than 125,000 veterans throughout the country, while impacting thousands of students every day. Those of us who have worked tirelessly to honor our veterans of all conflicts by preserving the freedom for which they fought and the patriotism that they epitomize continues. The Organization will continue forward to honor these heroes by collecting their stories of valor, duty, honor and sacrifice and sharing them through youth education and corporate mentorshiwhile remembering those who served.
