Intrepid Family of Foundations
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is one of the Intrepid Family of Foundations, organizations that were all established by Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher. The Museum’s sister organizations share the goal of supporting the men and women of the United States armed forces, veterans and their families.
Fisher House Foundation
Fisher House LogoThe Fisher House Foundation constructs “comfort homes” at military and VA medical centers, enabling family members of hospitalized military personnel to be present during treatment. Today there are more than 60 Fisher Houses across the country, with many more planned or under construction. Annually, Fisher Houses serve 22,000 families. Since its establishment in 1990, the program has provided over 5.2 million days of lodging, saving military and veteran families more than $235 million in travel and lodging costs. Extending its mission of helping military families in need, the Fisher House Foundation also operates Hero Miles and Scholarships for Military Children.

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
IFHF - Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund LogoThe Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families, has provided over $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. The Fund most recently opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). In 2013 the Fund launched a new $100 million campaign to build nine “Intrepid Spirit” centers at major military bases around the country. These centers will serve as satellites to the central NICoE facility and extend that care to more service members and veterans suffering TBI and related afflictions.

Intrepid Relief Fund
Intrepid Relief Fund LogoEstablished in the 1990s under Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher’s leadership, the Intrepid Relief Fund supported the military community by providing scholarships for approximately 800 sons and daughters of American Veterans. Through the Fund, the Fishers also provided financial support to families of military personnel lost in performance of their duty, an effort subsequently assumed by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Today the Intrepid Relief Fund supports a unique effort called Operation Mend, providing advanced plastic surgery to service members who have sustained disfiguring facial injuries during service in combat.
