Who We Are

The mission of the Steel Standing Memorial Foundation is to assist those in desperate need who have been impacted by natural and man-made disaster, war, famine, and disease. “STEEL STANDING” is a compelling, artistic photograph that captures the steel ruin of the World Trade Center South Tower after the unimaginable act of terrorism on September 11, 2001. “STEEL STANDING” is far more than an iconic black and white photograph. It is a powerful symbol of perseverance and fortitude. It profoundly depicts that which refused to fall. It literally identified itself by virtue of what it was, a huge monument of STEEL that was STANDING. Our mission is clear: to utilize the “STEEL STANDING” image, to HONOR THE SPIRIT OF COURAGE, STRENGTH, RESILIENCE AND REBIRTH to inspire all people to never give up hope

This unique and original symbol was forged by the thousands of people whose lives were taken on that fateful September morning. It is a symbolic portrait of their souls that serves as a transcending message, and an authentic visual memorial. There is no better way to honor those lost than to faithfully translate STEEL STANDING’S inherent profound message into a universal, and inspirational symbol of hope. It communicates that no matter how impossible or difficult your situation may seem, if you courageously confront it with unwavering strength of character and fortitude, you can ultimately overcome all of your fears and challenges in life, including death.

Yes, their souls and spirits are, and will forever be, STEEL STANDING.

God Bless,
