In the face of conflict, adversity and loss, our soldiers march on in the name of freedom and honor so that we may enjoy all that this great nation has to offer. When they return to our communities, let us welcome them with open arms, heart felt thanks and a place to call home.
The Fairway Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 organization, with permission from the Military Order of the Purple Heart national headquarters, has created this Purple Heart, to help raise awareness and funds to assist veterans in need. Comprised of all volunteers, 100% of all net proceeds will go to veteran programs. Sign your name in support of our veterans.
Display the hearts, take a picture, post on The Fairway Foundation Facebook page and share on other social media to help spread the word or email photos and/or video clips to FairwayFoundationNY@gmail.com. Together we can all make a difference in the life of a veteran.

The brave men and women of the US Armed Forces have endured incredible hardships and sacrifice to defend our freedom, and often face uphill battles when it comes to employment, homeownership, and poverty. Fairway recognizes these unique challenges, and through our American Warrior Initiative, has made a commitment to give back. Since 2012, the American Warrior Initiative has sought to ease the transition between military and civilian life, by providing educational resources and support to veterans, service members, and military families.
Fairway Foundation, Inc. is the 501c3 arm of Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp. with branches in 49 states and 3000 employees. Fairway working with the Military Warrior Support Organization, another non for profit which obtained the homes through donations, has helped put over twenty veteran families on the path to mortgage-free homes.Fairway has an ongoingInitiative to help more veterans nationally as our company has grown around its Core Values. Please find some video links below of events coordinated and hosted by Fairway. Sean Parnell, retired US Army Ranger, and NY Times best selling author of Outlaw Platoon is our national spokesperson and is present at many of these events shown. With permission from the National Office of the Military Order of the Purple Heart to use the Purple Heart emblem for our purple heart campaign, over 15,000 have been distributed and displayed throughout Long Island in schools, businesses, and various organizations. I have attached a photo of one such display at the Cherry Ave Elementary school in which NYS Senator Croci, a veteran himself, presented the Fairway Foundation with a proclamation for our efforts to help veterans. Long Island has 150,000 veterans, one of the highest number in the country yet how many children or adults know what a Purple Heart signifies. The donations are small but the message is significant. Our local 7-Eleven Regional office which includes 90 stores through out Suffolk and Nassau County, and PSEGLI have recently signed on to the growing list of participants. Our goal is to have every school and more organizations on Long Island join the campaign which helps local veterans.We are all volunteers and 100% of the net proceeds stays on Long Island. We have very little overhead as no one is paid and we keep our expenses to a minimal. The Fairway Foundation is not about just homes. It is about changing the culture of our community. We are trying to set examples for our children, families, coworkers and neighbors to show that something small can make a difference in the life of others when we work together. For Long Islanders a $1 donation for a Purple Heart sends a message to our veterans of "We care and you are not forgotten". What impact does it have on the mind of a veteran or their family member to see a wall full of purple hearts at a 7-Eleven, a school, a business? With an estimated 22 veteran suicides a day, perhaps for one veteran it may mean the difference between life and death. Nothing is more powerful than hope. Let's teach our children to give back, give heart felt thanks to a veteranand to have pride in their community. That is how we can honor all those who have served our country. Visit our The Fairway Foundation Facebook page for dozens of other photos and videos highlighting our progress.
Together each of us can make a difference Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-881-5110 today to find out how to donate or become a sponsor.

This year’s event will featured the debut of The Reason I Breathe a song which brings to light the need for on going support for our veterans. Rosemarie Kluepfel, Fairway team member, wrote the song after a speaking engagement at the VA in Northport. “There was a sadness in their eyes that haunted me. Many are struggling and some are coping with invisible wounds, post-traumatic stress.” 100% of the profits from the sale of the CD will go towards awarding wounded veterans a mortgage-free home on Long Island.
The Fairway Foundation supports our troops …and so can you!
