You are a proud supporter of the men and women who defend our country

In 2011, the SIF honored Steven Nardizzi, Executive Director of the Wounded Warrior Project. The SIF not only supports the Wounded Warrior Project’s efforts financially, but also through an annual joint scholarship awarded to a member of our armed forces.

You want to continue medical research in the fields of Autism & Cooley’s Anemia

The SIF has dedicated funds to support the important medical research grants facilitated by the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation and the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism.

You or someone you know has been affected by Alzheimer’s disease

The SIF has contributed $2 million to the Alzheimer’s Association to date. The Alzheimer’s Association is a designated SIF National Charity.

There are countless other reasons to donate, just one of them happens to be a chance to go to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Please donate today.
