The Silver Shield Foundation

The Silver Shield Foundation reaches out to every family in New York City and the surrounding area that has lost a mother or father in the line of duty. The Foundation ensures that the death of a parent does not mean the end of educational opportunity.


The Foundation begins its work as soon as notice is received of a death in the line of duty. A Foundation Family Enrollment Form is sent to the family. Once the form is com­pleted and returned to the Silver Shield Foundation, a scholarship fund is established for the children of the deceased parent. The fund is to be used for tutoring or tuition at an accredited college, or graduate, vocational, preparatory or technical school. The Found­ation keeps in contact with the student to determine his/her future educational plans.

The Perfect College: It Exists...But It's Different for Everyone

June 29, 2015

by Erica Lewis

My name is Erica Lewis and I attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I am majoring in food science and technology. I chose UNL because it was the right fit for me: It was close to home but far enough away that I didn't feel like my parents were right there!
