Gary Sinise Foundation

The Gary Sinise Foundation serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. The accomplish this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.


Through our R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program, we build 100% mortgage-free specially adapted smart homes for our most severely wounded heroes. We also provide home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to our injured, wounded, ill, and aging heroes.

Relief & Resiliency

Our Relief & Resiliency program aims to ensure our defenders and their families stay strong through hardships by offering complete support in times of need. These programmatic initiatives help our nation’s heroes and their families find the strength to persevere and heal.

Community Outreach & Education

Our Community Outreach & Education program bridges the gap between our defender and civilian communities. Through these programmatic initiatives, we honor America’s heroes both past and present and inspire the next generation to do the same.

First Responders Outreach

Our First Responders Outreach program provides funding for essential equipment, PPE, emergency relief, and training to ensure our first responders are able to perform to the best of their abilities. We also help those severely wounded in the line of duty by building 100% mortgage-free specially adapted smart homes and providing home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles.
