About TTOF ~ Beneficiaries

On September 11, 2001, an evil faction of fanatics attacked the United States. These terrorists ruthlessly murdered thousands of men, women and children, and left thousands upon thousands mourning the loss of their family members and friends. They killed our neighbors, our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, and our children.

It is the mission of the Twin Towers Orphan Fund (TTOF) to help reduce the collateral damage caused by the terrorist acts by providing long-term assistance to the children of those killed on September 11, 2001. The TTOF provides higher educational assistance, as well as physical and mental healthcare assistance, to children who lost one or both parents in the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, or onboard the four downed airliners.

Our beneficiaries include more then 1,000 children in 18 states and territories. Nearly 65 percent of the children are 10 years or younger - including 30 babies born after 9/11/01. If 2003 is an accurate indicator of ongoing TTOF-registrations, we can expect a 15 percent increase in child-registrations each year.

In addition to the assistance that the Twin Towers Orphan Fund offers, we also provide the parent/guardian of each child additional information on other funds and charities that may be of benefit to them, as well as referrals to service providers.

Early on, the fund's goal was to raise $50,000 per registered child. Currently, there is nearly $7,000 per child available to cover both higher educational expenses and health care expenses. Over the next twenty years, at least an additional $45 million is required if we are to ensure quality health care and higher education for the children of 9/11.

Thank you for your continued support of the children of 9/11. Please know we are personally working with each family, with care and compassion. And we will continue to do so.
