The Gold Star Family Organization shall raise awareness and educate Augusta University, the local Augusta community, and nationally through service events, social media, and through collaboration with nearby colleges and universities about the service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice and their families left behind. The Gold Star Family Organization shall also raise funds for the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation.


Creating a supportive and empathetic community that honors and remembers the sacrifices of service members, while providing substantial assistance to the families left behind. This vision encompasses a future where awareness, education, and fundraising efforts positively impact Gold Star families and contribute to the mission's success.
