About the Memorial Fund

The Ben Osborn Memorial Fund was created in loving memory of CPL Benjamin D. Osborn. Ben was killed during a combat rescue operation in Kunor Province, Afghanistan on June 15, 2010 while serving in the US Army during Operation Enduring Freedom.

The memorial fund aims to carry forward Ben's legacy of discipline, pride, and selfless sacrifice. The positive impact Ben made in life continues on through this fund. 

Ben’s Fund supports children with need in conjunction with over 60 schools in Warren, Washington, Saratoga and Essex Counties by providing purchased goods and services including electronics, clothing, bedding, food, tutoring, school supplies, eyeglasses, transportation costs, field trip admission expenses, etc.

Additionally, the Fund awards 20 scholarships to qualifying graduating seniors from ten local school districts. We also donate household and personal care items to 12 local food pantries.
