A Celebration Of American And The American Flag

Our mission

Giving to 1350 Foundation

The Thirteen-Fifty Foundation, established in June of 2001 and incorporated in October of that year, was founded with the core mission of celebrating America and the American Flag by encouraging active and purposeful citizenship. Through its name, the foundation honors the flag of the United States of America. The number 13 representing the stripes of the flag commemorating our nation’s original 13 colonies ... and the 50 representing the 50 stars commemorating the 50 states in the Union. The foundation’s colors are that of the flag’s: red, white and blue. Charles Thompson, secretary of the Continental Congresses of 1776 and 1777 designated the colors red, white and blue for the seal of the United States and they were later adopted for the flag as well. Red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence and blue symbolizes vigilance, perseverance and justice. The Thirteen-Fifty Foundation embraces these noble qualities and through its mission, seeks to kindle, nurture and perpetuate them in citizens across the nation.
