Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is moved to by the generous support of our partner Vineyard Vines. On February 15th, Vineyard Vines donated 10% of every purchase to Fallen Patriots, to ensure a future college education for Gold Star children. Participation from loyal supporters made this fundraiser an exceptional success.

Customers also received 10% off their purchase, making the day beneficial to all parties involved.

Vineyard Vines made its name as an alternative to labels that were the standard for a preppy lifestyle, and found its niche among university students seeking that casual upper-class look. The clothing and accessory retailer was founded in 1998 near Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and expanded nationally with 52 stores, particularly along the East Coast.

Vineyard Vines has supported us in other ways, too.  They have offered summer internships to Fallen Patriot scholarship grantees. With these internships, Gold Star students have been able to gain valuable experience with a loyal company. Vineyard Vines has also participated in the #DropandGiveMe10Challenge, and offered 10% of all sales to be donated to Fallen Patriots on select dates.

Thanks to our partnership with Vineyard Vines, proceeds will help provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
