Our Mission

Providing Assistance to 1/75th Rangers and their Families

The Sua Sponte Foundation is an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization comprised of a small group of veteran 1/75 Rangers and patriotic civilians. The Foundation was created in 2010 to provide assistance to Rangers and families of the 1st Ranger Battalion, part of the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment based at Hunter Army Airfield, Savannah, Ga. The Foundation’s name, Sua Sponte – Latin for “of their own accord” –is the regimental motto.

With the support of donations from individuals and businesses, the Sua Sponte Foundation:

  • Assists 1/75 Rangers and their families in times of crisis
  • Hosts and sponsors events to increase the morale and cohesiveness of the 1/75 Rangers and their families
  • Maintains and cares for the 1/75 Memorial site to the highest standard

It is the Sua Sponte Foundation’s goal to ensure ninety-eight percent (98%) of donations go directly to its mission and cause.
