About the World War II Foundation:

The Rhode Island based 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.15938618262_0376aaccf2_o

The WWII Foundation 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 visited 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 air nationally on PBS stations, the Foundation has successfully produced a series of 18 award winning documentaries.

WWII Foundation documentary films rank in the top-5 of most requested nationally by PBS stations.

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 three 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.

IMG_9866Project participants and supporters include: Gov. Tom Ridge, Dan Aykroyd, Curt Schilling, Tom Selleck, Tim McCarver, Kyle Chandler, Bill Belichick, Matthew Broderick, Donnie Wahlberg, Jason Beghe and Damian Lewis.

Each day some 600 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.DJI_0086

The foundation donates its films to American Public Television, schools and libraries so young people understand the sacrifices made by the WWII generation.

Please contact Tim Gray if your school would be interested in obtaining free DVDs for use in your classrooms and school libraries.

Luke 11:5-8

Then, teaching them more about prayer, he (Jesus) used this story: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You say to him, A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit, and I have nothing for him to eat.’ And suppose he calls out from his bedroom, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is locked for the night, and my family and I are all in bed. I can’t help you.’ But I tell you this—though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence.
