The Tunnel to Towers Foundation Receives $15 Million Gift from MacKenzie Scott
The gift will help support America’s injured veterans and first responders, Gold Star families, and the families of fallen first responders
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation announced today it has received a generous unrestricted $15 million donation from MacKenzie Scott to advance its mission to support America’s military and first responders who risk life and limb for our safety every day.
Tunnel to Towers provides mortgage-free smart homes to our nation’s catastrophically injured veterans and first responders, and mortgage-payoffs to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children. In 2021, the Foundation provided these heroes and their families with over 200 mortgage-free homes.
“I want to thank MacKenzie Scott for this donation and her support of our mission to help America’s military and first responders and the families left behind when their loved ones make the ultimate sacrifice,” said Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, who added, “This donation delivers more than just financial support to these families, it shows them that America has not forgotten their loved one’s service and sacrifice.”
