The Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund (MSLF) was founded in 2004 with a simple goal: to provide educational assistance grants to the children of Massachusetts Servicemembers who were killed while deployed on Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. We are proud to report that we are accomplishing our founding objective thanks to the support of individuals and organizations throughout the United States.
The MSLF has raised over $4.5 Million and will continue to enhance the educational pursuits of its 49 families and 80 children. If an individual is a child of a Servicemember, whose service is credited to Massachusetts and who gave their life in Operation Enduring or Iraqi Freedom, he/she qualifies.
Currently, our children are attending a number of schools such as the University of Texas, Stonehill College and Quinnipiac University. They are pursuing careers in engineering, music and environmental studies. We are grateful for the support of our donors and together will work to continue to support the educational goals of our families.
Thank you to Whole Foods Dimes to Dollars program for the generous donation totaling over $11K! The MSLF was chosen over Memorial Day weekend as a way to honor those local servicemembers and their families. More information about the Dimes to Dollars program is available here.
