Fallen Heroes Fund

The Community Foundation of West Texas has established the Fallen Heroes Fund to provide scholarship support for the dependent survivors of service men and women and first responders who have died in the line of duty since September 11, 2001.

Of all the concerns that active duty men and women have as they leave their families behind, the welfare of their children must be foremost in their minds.

flagScholarships: As a supplement to financial aid and survivor educational benefits, Fallen Heroes scholarship awards will help to assure that the dependents of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our community will have the financial resources necessary to obtain a post-secondary education.

Taking Care of our Own: Preference will be given to the dependent survivors of active duty personnel or first responders who resided in this area at some time prior to their death.

How Can You Help? The amount of educational support provided for these families will be entirely dependent upon the generosity of this community. All gifts, large and small, can make a difference.

Initial support for the Fallen Heroes Fund is being provided by the law firm of Field, Manning, Stone, Hawthorne & Aycock, the CH Foundation and from endowments at the Community Foundation of West Texas  including the 2006 Hero’s Endowment, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Endowment and the West Texas Home Builders Endowment.
