The Pointe du Hoc Foundation (PDHF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to recognize and commemorate the Rangers of 2d Battalion and their families. The historic missions of 2d Ranger Battalion are legendary; from scaling the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc Normandy on D-Day, 1944, to airborne operations in Grenada and Panama in the 1980s, and more. Since September 11, 2001, 2d Battalion Rangers have remained a pivotal force in the War on Terrorism, enduring 17 combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.
PDHF will memorialize 2d Battalion Rangers, of all eras, by sustaining the 2d Ranger Battalion Memorial Park built in tribute to the fallen; and provide benevolent support through educational funding, life skills development, counseling, and employment assistance for 2d Ranger Battalion families in need.
Lead The Way Fund, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to raise funds in support of disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world. Lead The Way Fund, Inc. will provide spouses and children of deceased, disabled or active duty Rangers with assistance for health and wellness programs and other services determined to be vital to the family’s well-being, beyond what the government can offer.
Families of the fallen or disabled are left behind with an immediate and ongoing need to meet the financial obligations of everyday life. The Lead the Way Fund was established to help ease these financial burdens and to help these families adjust to the realities of their new lives. By working in collaboration with U.S. Special Operations Command Care Coalition in identifying the needs of the Ranger and his dependents, we are assured that all funds are distributed fairly and compassionately, with an administrative trail allowing us to follow-up on the results of awarded funds.
