Why 68?

In 2019, Folds of Honor awarded 4,500 scholarships nationwide, 68 in the state of Kansas and the Kansas City, Missouri community alone. Those “Legacy” recipients are counting on continued support from Folds of Honor for the coming school year.

The last few months have been challenging for all Americans and we pray that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy in these unprecedented times. As so much of the future remains uncertain, it is more important than ever that we remain true to our motto, “Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.” 

This Fourth of July, the Kansas City Folds of Honor chapter is launching Operation 68, a campaign to ensure we continue to fund our legacy recipients’ scholarships here at home.

COVID-19 has forced the cancelation of many fundraising events, but it has not canceled the needs of our military families who sacrifice their lives daily for the freedoms we all enjoy. We believe that it is our privilege and duty to take care of those who take care of us.

With your support, Folds of Honor will continue to empower, equip, and educate the loved ones of America’s fallen and disabled heroes. 

Please join us in ensuring that these students continue to achieve their academic dreams.

WHY 13?

The Flag of the United States of America is folded 13 times before it is handed to the family at the burial of their fallen service-member.

In the Folded Flag we see the heavy price of freedom.

Yet it is also a symbol of hope, representing the enduring ideals that make this country a beacon of democracy. Our logo reflects our mission – to honor the sacrifices of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy.

Over the past thirteen years, Folds of Honor as grown from a vision to a movement. The folded flag is a constant reminder of those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. It inspires us to help their loved ones in need of our support. Thank you for embracing the call.
