That Others May Live Foundation

aka TOML Foundation   |   Henderson, NV   |  www.thatothersmaylive.org

Mission

That Others May Live Foundation provides immediate tragedy assistance, critical support, and scholarships for the families of U.S Air Force Rescue service members who are killed or wounded in operational or training missions. TOMLF also provides advocacy, guidance, and support to U.S. Air Force Rescue service members, veterans, and families affected by visible and invisible wounds.

Notes from the nonprofit

Few will ever forget images from August 2021’s U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. Frantic Afghans rushing Kabul International Airport. The Abbey Gate explosion. Americans and U.S. allies unable to reach the airport. At the heart of the evacuations was Air Force Rescue personnel – seen and unseen – risking their lives to save others. The withdrawal triggered a mental health crisis for many post-9/11 Rescue personnel and Veterans. For 20 years, Rescue provided life-saving mission support there for all four military branches. In 2022, That Others May Live Foundation expanded our Visible and Invisible Wounds Program to incorporate experiential healing to address Heroes' mental health struggles more comprehensively. We’ve partnered with national nonprofits to offer experiential counseling/therapy and have launched group excursions to foster more genuine opportunities for peer support. In doing so, TOML meets Heroes where they are at in their healing journeys and helps build resilience.

Scholarship Programs

That Others May Live Foundation helps children in the Rescue community pursue their life dreams through two academic scholarship programs. Scholarships fill in gaps left by other scholarship opportunities available to military children.

CHILDREN OF FALLEN WARRIORS: Children who lose a parent conducting an Air Combat Rescue operational or training mission are guaranteed a fully paid, post-secondary education at the time of loss. This program fills in gaps left by other scholarship opportunities available to children, ensuring they receive a debt-free education.

JOLLY GREEN MERIT: In partnership with the Air Rescue Association, we also offer annual merit-based scholarships to the children of current and past Air Force Rescue personnel of up to $3,500.

That Others May Live Foundation eases the financial burdens of Air Force Rescue families and service members when tragedy strikes. Through the Immediate Tragedy Assistance Program, we provide financial assistance to service members seriously wounded during a mission or operational training, as well as to surviving spouses/partners when Heroes make the ultimate sacrifice. This financial support is immediately available and helps with unexpected expenses such as family member airfare, childcare, hotel costs, and funeral arrangements.

Through the Warfighter Support Program, That Others May Live Foundation builds unit camaraderie and improves the morale of Rescue warfighters – areas that directly impact mission effectiveness. We send morale care packages to deployed Rescue personnel; host warfighter appreciation events at Air Force Rescue bases; and fund Rescue unit family day outings.

In addition, TOMLF sponsors the annual Air Rescue Ball and Rescue Squadron of the Year Award, intended to recognize our warfighters, provide a sense of community and support, and celebrate the Rescue community mission heritage and accomplishments.

The Visible and Invisible Wounds Program helps Rescue Heroes with wounds both visible and invisible begin to heal by building resiliency, increasing connectedness, and easing transitions. That Others May Live Foundation provides access to mental health counseling, as well as opportunities for experiential peer support and resilience building.

Because Rescue personnel conduct both civilian and combat rescue missions, there is no such thing as “downtime” even when back home. On alert 24/7, they are either on mission or engaged in dangerous operational training. The relentless physical and emotional demands that come from dangerous, trauma-filled missions take their toll on Rescue Heroes. Many struggle with post-traumatic stress (PTS), traumatic brain injury, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and tragically, suicidal ideation. This often results in difficulties relating to and connecting with others, particularly Veterans transitioning to civilian life.

2. Program Development - Develop, evaluate, and streamline program offerings to maximize financial resources for priority mission areas, and socialize & communicate resources for our beneficiary community
3. Revenue Generation – Develop a diversified funding strategy that expands our reach and sustains our mission through a thorough examination of TOMLF supporter trends and consideration for our existing climate.
4. Resource Development – Leverage our talents, resources and strengths to engage our community, deepen key relationships in support of our mission and strengthen organizational governance.

Organizational Capacity Assessment
The Foundation has the resources and capabilities necessary to successfully serve many of Post-9/11 USAF Rescue families. Primary resources include an experienced executive director who holds an MBA and whose widely experienced background includes organizational management, strategy, community relations and revenue funding. The Foundation’s programs team is currently comprised of a USAF Veterans, with a Master’s degree, and extensive experience in developing and administering programs. The development manager holds a Bachelor’s degree and is a seasoned professional with proven success in cultivating corporate and individual giving, special events, and volunteer leadership development. All team members are highly dedicated to the Foundation’s mission and are well trained in their areas of responsibility.

TOMLF's Board of Directors is a diverse group of professionals who have knowledge, passion and community connections to the organization, including 16 members who are senior ranking military retirees. In addition, the Foundation has shown a strong capacity to tap into key community leaders across the U.S. for financial support through both personal and professional relationships of its founders, the Executive Director and Board members. The Foundation has also leveraged relationships with active duty military and Veteran leaders for outreach in local communities. The organization holds very close ties with key leaders in the fields of defense, homeland security, aviation and aerospace industries, law enforcement and first responders, construction, information technology field, and financial and professional services.
