Helping to Transform Painful Tragedies

Into Renewed Hopes and Dreams

Welcome to Our Website

This website is dedicated as a Memorial to the memory of Master Sergeant Michael G. Heiser and the 18 other airmen who lost their lives in the Khobar Towers Bombing. CSM Gary and Frances Heiser dedicated every waking minute after this tragedy occurred visualizing how they were going to memorialize their son, MSGT Michael G. Heiser, and his comrades that were killed by the brutal attack on Khobar Towers, June 25, 1996. After the initial shock wore off and investigating by the military, FBI, and news media, new information was uncovered, claiming the Iranians were responsible. 

The Heiser Foundation, which once was The Michael G. Heiser Foundation, changed names in 2008, after Gary Heiser passed away. Frances has chosen to remember those who have suffered tragic losses, those seeking further education opportunities, and non-profits that are like-minded to The Heiser Foundation.

Mission Statement

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit Foundation (your gifts are tax deductible), our mission is to provide economic assistance to individuals and to partner with other organizations to support and assist those who have suffered tragic losses. We place emphasis on, but are not limited to, any military connections, specifically those left childless or those without a parent. We also offer support to organizations that perform services to local communities and award scholarships for educational advancement.

We strive to heighten awareness of terrorism and its profoundly devastating effects on American families. The Foundation strives to grow through self-funding and donations in order to increase its ability to help those in need.
