The Ben Osborne Fund

The Benjamin D. Osborn Memorial Fund, Inc. has been founded to support youth with “NEED”. This fund was created in loving memory of CPL Benjamin D. Osborn who was killed in Afghanistan, June 15, 2010, while serving in the United States Army during Operation Enduring Freedom. 

It is our mission and hope that the values being learned such as: a charitable heart, work ethic, sportsmanship, leadership, discipline, and pride will be encouraged and passed on through Ben’s legacy.
