Giving Tuesday Donations to Support Military Children of the Fallen

Dulles, VA – This holiday season, as individuals and organizations decide which nonprofit to donate to on Giving Tuesday, supporting Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) will help more military children who lost a parent in the line of duty achieve their dreams through a college education. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 3rd and every day. Thanks to the generosity of those who support its mission, Fallen Patriots can do their part to make the world a better place by honoring those who have passed defending the United States of America.

Since 2002, Fallen Patriots has provided more than $33.8 million in total assistance, including college scholarships and educational counseling to over 1,600 bright and motivated military children of our country’s fallen heroes.  

Cassidy La Bouff is one of Fallen Patriots’ scholarship recipients and the daughter of U.S. Army Major Douglas A. La Bouff, who lost his life in Iraq in 2006 while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. With the help of Fallen Patriots, she is studying Journalism and Technical Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations at Colorado State University and is expected to graduate debt-free in 2021.

“Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation has been there for my family in times of struggle and in times of celebration,” says Cassidy. “There are no words to describe how thankful I am for the support Fallen Patriots has given me while I chase my dreams.”

There are approximately 20,000 children who have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every such child receives all necessary college funding.


Fallen Patriots relies on the generous contributions from its donors. To help more military children of fallen patriots like Cassidy this Giving Tuesday, visit donate.fallenpatriots.org/campaign/givingtuesday/c257581.
