New York, NY – Aug. 23, 2017 – The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a leader in supporting the men and women of the armed forces, today announced it has received a grant for $75,000 from the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc. Through the grant, IFHF will continue its efforts to support the service members and their families.
The Motorola Solutions Foundation awards grants each year to organizations which support and advance public safety programs and technology & engineering education initiatives. This year, programs that served underrepresented populations, including females, people with disabilities and veterans were prioritized.
“We greatly appreciate the very generous and continued support of the Motorola Solutions Foundation,” said David Winters, President of IFHF. “The funding provided is truly making a difference in the lives of American Military personnel wounded in performance of their duty.”
IFHF is building a series of Intrepid Spirit centers, diagnostic and treatment facilities that aid military heroes suffering from traumatic brain injuries and psychological health conditions. The grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation will specifically support construction of a new Intrepid Spirit center at Fort Carson, Colorado. Each Intrepid Spirit center costs approximately $12.5 million to construct and equip with the latest in brain technology and treatment facilities and spans 25,000 square feet.
Prior support from the Motorola Solutions Foundation includes funding for Intrepid Spirit centers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington and Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base in California. Construction of both is currently well underway.
This year, Motorola Solutions Foundation grants will support programs that help over 2 million students, teachers, first responders, and community members across the United States. Each participant will receive an average of 186 programming hours from its partner non-profit organizations and institutions. Programs will support special populations including: females, underrepresented minorities, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, people with disabilities, and veterans.
