The Mission of Freedom Alliance is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States and promoting a strong national defense.
Freedom Alliance is an educational and charitable organization which sponsors numerous program activities aimed at supporting and honoring our service members and their families. Freedom Alliance is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a public charity organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.
Freedom Alliance sponsors educational and charitable initiatives under three main program areas.
The Military Leadership Academy (MLA) inspires, educates and motivates young Americans to become positive, productive citizens and leaders in their communities and among their peers. The program teaches students leadership principles based on Freedom Alliance’s Core Values of Selfless Service, Courage, Dependability, Integrity, Responsibility, Respect, and Teamwork.
The Support Our Troops program honors members of our Armed Forces who secure the liberty with which God has blessed us. To recognize their service, we host events to express our thanks and appreciation to our military; provide financial and other help to our troops in a time of need; and honor and assist their families.
Freedom Alliance’s Scholarship Fund provides college scholarships to the sons and daughters of American heroes – the dependents of U.S. military personnel who have been killed or permanently disabled in an operational mission or training accident. We do this for two reasons: first, to help deserving students with the rising cost of college education; and second, to remind those students that their parents’ sacrifices will never be forgotten by a grateful nation.
The Center for Sovereignty and Security is the public policy division of Freedom Alliance. The center educates the American people about the need to protect our national sovereignty and promote our national defense. We host educational seminars and conferences to inform the public about these issues of national importance.
