Spartan Society

Recognizing those who Advance the Mission_

Spartan Society is Travis Manion Foundation’s elite recognition program to honor and thank the donors helping to advance TMF’s mission through generous financial support. Spartan Society members are individuals, companies, foundations, and independent fundraisers who donate a cumulative tax deductible donation of $1,000 or more within TMF’s fiscal year: April 1 - March 31.

 

 As a Spartan Society member, you'll receive exclusive opportunities and benefits based on your tiered giving level.

 

Member Spotlights

Each member of our community is unique and supports the mission of fostering the next generation of leaders differently. Check out a few of our current members and why they opted to ask themselves “If Not Me, Then Who…”

Keith Palmer

USMC Veteran

Top 3 Strengths: Fairness, Honesty, Perseverance

 

Keith Palmer is a Marine veteran and volunteer Mentor with the Character Does Matter program. He has inspired thousands of young adults in the Philadelphia area with his own story of persistence and moral courage.

 

"What I enjoy most about being part of TMF is the platform it has given me to give back to others. I have always looked for ways to contribute to the community and TMF allows me to do this with meaning and purpose. I am grateful and inspired to contribute."

Islandman Triathlon

Tyler Caracausa

Top 3 Strengths: Perseverance, Humor, Zest

 

For years, Tyler Caracausa has led a team to compete and fundraise for the Islandman Triathlon in New Jersey. This year, he helped raise nearly $9,000 to support the TMF mission and in total raised over $40,000 throughout the years. 

 

"I enjoy working with Travis Manion Foundation to tell others about Travis’ legacy and continue to “honor the fallen by challenging the living.”  Our service men and women make great sacrifices to enable the general population to live in a free country, and working with Travis Manion Foundation allows me to give back and show appreciation for all of the sacrifices these men and women have made for us."

RTI International

Ward Sax

Top 3 Strengths: Courage, Fairness, Integrity

 

Ward Sax is Senior VP, Treasurer, & Chief Risk Officer at RTI International. Support from RTI directly supports our Character Does Matter program.

 

"This notion that “Character Does Matter” is foundational to developing values based leaders and a healthy community. The TMF mission to inspire young adults to live with character, to develop their values-based leadership skills and to imbue them with a desire to serve their communities is what excites me about being part of TMF."
