David FinNew York City-based neckwear company David Fin Ties has made received a $10,000 donation to the Folded Flag Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps fund educational opportunities for the families of America’s bravest heroes.

David Fin Ties was founded in 2014 with a mission to support transitioning military families, including raising awareness of veteran employment and other initiatives. In September, David Fin Ties founder and CEO David Herzka named The Folded Flag Foundation the company’s veteran charity partner, pledging to contribute $5 for each tie sold on davidfin.com to The Folded Flag Foundation to help The Folded Flag Foundation fund the educational dreams of families of our fallen heroes. David Fin Ties chose Folded Flag scholarship recipient Madison Marcum as the beneficiary of this special campaign.

Touched by the outpouring of support of the campaign, Herzka later decided to double the originally agreed upon donation to $10 per tie, and added $5 per pocket square sold.

“We are honored to be able to partner with The Folded Flag Foundation to raise awareness and help fund the educational dreams of the spouses and children of our nation’s bravest heroes,” said Herzka. “There is a tremendous need on the part of the spouses and children of those killed in combat, and we are proud to give a portion of our sales revenue to help The Folded Flag fulfill the educational dreams of these Gold Star families and honor the legacy of these fallen heroes.”

Added John Coogan, executive director of The Folded Flag Foundation. “As The Folded Flag reaches out to help more and more Gold Star families, our need for corporate financial support to help fund these dreams grows, as well. By partnering with corporate sponsors, like David Fin Ties, The Folded Flag Foundation is better equipped to broaden its field of support and provide more assistance to more deserving families of our military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.”
