About Us
Who Are We?

The IronMen Foundation was the brainchild of the Men's Ministry at The Village Church of Barrington (Illinois). Believing it was time to reach outside the confines of this small church, the men formed the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. It was incorporated in 2007 for the sole purpose or Providing Scholarships to the Children of Fallen Warriors. We are simply a group of American Patriots, from all walks of life trying to ease the unimaginable pain of our military families. 

       Our Vision was to do something significant to support our
                             American Heroes' Families.

We invited businesses in the Hot Rod industry to partner with us to build automobiles in order to:
  1. Capture the Attention of the American People;
  2. Dramatize the Educational Dilemma of the Children of our American Heroes;
  3. Build iconic hot rods - made from the Excellent Products of our Donor Partners who make the best products in the Hot Rod industry;
  4. Create a desire to own this car;
  5. Raise as Much Money as Possible at a High-Visibility Automobile Auction.

Mission Accomplished
