The World War II Foundation is one of the nation’s leading non-profit organizations committed to educating future generations about the enormous sacrifices and achievements of sixteen million Americans who served in WWII.
The WWII Foundation also tells the stories of those in Europe and the Pacific who fought in the war and also experienced its horrific events, from survivors of the Holocaust to citizens of European countries who endured German occupation to those who witnessed the Blitz in England.
The foundation has also visted several Japanese camps in the Philippines where thousands of Allied soldiers were brutally treated and murdered.
With a strong focus on film and television documentaries which have been aired on PBS, the Foundation has successfully produced a series of award winning documentaries.
Among the Foundation’s awards, Tim Gray, Chairman, personally has won 5 regional Emmy’s for documentary film writing and outstanding documentary film.
The Foundation captured two prestigious Indie Film Fest Awards in their international competition.
In addition, the World War II Foundation/Tim Gray Media has received the prestigious Programming Excellence Award from American Public Television for its series of WWII films.
Project participants and supporters include: Gov. Tom Ridge, Dan Aykroyd, Curt Schilling, Tom Selleck, Tim McCarver, Kyle Chandler, Bill Belichick and Damian Lewis.
Each day some 800 veterans of the war pass on, taking with them incredible stories of the time period 1939-1945.
The goal of our foundation is to preserve the individual experiences of those who witnessed the most devastating conflict known to man and to hopefully, pass on the lessons learned from World War II to a new generation.
We also seek, through educational outreach, to honor those who showed great examples of dedication, sacrifice and courage during one of the most horrific time periods in history.
We do hope you will support our mission and honor those who still remain, while also recognizing the cost paid by those who did not come home or were caught up in the path of World War II. Time is critical.
