We’ll never forget those who fight in wars, protect our borders, and defend our nation against external threats. While some people call them veterans, we call them heroes. They dedicated their lives to honor the dreams of our Founding Fathers and help make America strong, safe, and independent. Now, some of our wounded heroes need your help to pursue US Immigration and Customs Enforcement sponsored-job training programs.

Our end goal is to promote public safety and a secure America. The ICE Foundation does that many ways, including through providing financial aid to wounded veterans and educating people about the potential threats to our borders. As you might imagine, the life of a wounded veteran isn’t easy. However, we can assist those who have completed our Human Exploitation Rescue Operative (HERO) Child Rescue Corps program with a grant each year.

Living expenses and education costs are part of the training, so the grants are beneficial because they support wounded veterans while they’re developing the skills needed for career advancement.

If you’re wondering how you can join this noble cause, we’d like to encourage you to make a donation. Regardless of the amount you feel comfortable to donate, you can rest assured that it will make a difference in the life of more than 20,000 men and women of U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) supported by our foundation.

Another good opportunity to help is our Annual ICE Foundation Gala at the historic Mayflower Hotel on May 16th. The money raised in events like this is used to provide financial support for veterans and their families. We have sponsorships opportunities available starting at $1,000.  

You can check out our website to see our upcoming events to support our veterans. If you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities or if you’re looking for more information, feel free to reach out to Liz at events@icefoundation.org.

Effective December 31, 2018, the Board of the ICE Foundation recently voted to officially close down the foundation and cease all operations.  However, an entirely new and separate organization, the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council, has been created and will take up many of the positive legacy programs of the former ICE Foundation.  The Homeland Security Philanthropy Council will be similar to the ICE Foundation but will assume a broader remit to assist law enforcement agencies within the Department of Homeland Security. ICE Foundation Executive Director James Barchiesi and several ICE Foundation Board members will help with the transition and continue their philanthropic efforts by supporting the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council.  However, it is important to clarify that the ICE Foundation will sunset at the end of 2018 and that the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council will be a new entity without any official connection to the former ICE Foundation. The ICE Foundation Board members would like to sincerely thank the many generous supporters of the ICE Foundation who have assisted our efforts over the years to support the ICE mission and the men and women of ICE and their families.
