This Memorial Day we want to focus attention on one of our newest client organizations: the Christ Kyle Frog Foundation. It is named after Chris Kyle, U.S. Special Forces soldier, who was killed after his final tour of duty by a veteran with PTSD he was trying to help.
The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) was founded by Taya Kyle to honor the life and legacy of her husband, “American Sniper” Chris Kyle. Chris and Taya knew first-hand the challenges military and first responder families encounter from their lives of service. Prior to Chris’ untimely passing in February 2013, he was developing his vision for CKFF programs to support active duty military, veterans and first responder marriages and families. Today, Taya and the CKFF team are fulfilling Chris’ vision through the development and delivery of life-changing, impactful programs and services to service couples across the U.S.
All too often the family support network for those serving our country – either as a member of our armed services or as a first responder – can be overlooked or forgotten. As a nation, we are beginning to discuss and understand how a life of service and sacrifice can negatively contribute to frayed marriages and fractured families. Together our work is creating a positive effect for those families by providing much needed support. At CKFF, we do not believe serving your country or your community should mean sacrificing your family.
The mission of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) is to Honor God, Country, and Family, and is focused on changing the world for this generation and the next by recognizing and strengthening first responder and military marriages.
The team at the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation develops and delivers programs that support having a country with thriving and connected military and first responder marriages The CKFF team are professionals who understand what it means to live a service-oriented life, who believe in the power that God, Country and Family can provide to an individual and a marriage, and create programs and experiences which will strengthen and support service marriages and families.
The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation has been built on four solid pillars:
- Loyalty: Committed to God, Country, and Family
- Empowerment: Empowering Families to Thrive
- Integrity: Honesty and Transparency in our Programs, Funding and Communications
- Excellence: Reflecting the service excellence that our constituents provide in service to their communities and country
Dedicated to achieving CKFF’s mission with a lean team and working with a streamlined budget focused on outcomes, CKFF’s focus is on building programs that have deep impact in changing lives and a foundation that lasts well into the future.
