Please Remember the CIA Officers Memorial Foundation this Holiday Season

There are lots of great charities out there that are deserving of a share of our gift-giving this holiday season (and year-round for that matter). I'd like to introduce you to one of my favorite charitable organizations - the CIA Officers Memorial Foundation.
"The Foundation was established in December 2001 to provide educational support to the children of CIA officers killed in the line of duty. In May 2006, the Foundation's Board of Directors voted to expand its mission to include providing educational support to the spouses of CIA officers killed in the line of duty, and the children and spouses of officers who die on active duty as a result of accident, illness or other causes."
I just received my supporter letter from them and was happy to learn that they've been able to increase their scholarship awards to 28 students for the 2012-2013 academic year ($575,000) from 26 students ($512,000) for the prior year. However, according to their letter, they "still have a long way to go to realize our strategic goals and to sustain our ability to fund programs in the future as education expenses continue to soar and the number of families in need of our support increases."

Please keep this wonderful organization in mind this month as you make your charitable donations in the holiday spirit of giving. Thank you.
