"If Not Me, Then Who..."

On April 29, 2007, Travis Manion was killed by an enemy sniper while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) exists to carry on the legacy of character, service and leadership embodied by Travis and all those who have served and continue to serve our nation. 

Travis' words before leaving for his final deployment to Iraq "If Not Me, Then Who..." are a constant reminder for all of us to live with character and put other people's interests before our own.

With a simple but powerful statement, 1st Lt. Travis Manion, USMC, described the sense of duty felt by service members and their families. 

Why we partner with TMF:

We were introduced to the Travis Manion Foundation by Penn Mutual's involvement with them through different events.  We wanted to align ourselves with a nonprofit organization that had similar core values as we did, and that is exactly what we found with the Travis Manion Foundation.  

Some of their values include:

  • Build, measure, learn, repeat: When they see an opportunity, they run with it. There is no roadmap to achieving their bold mission, so they act with confidence, courage, creativity and independence in pursuit of their goals.
  • Be accountable: They do the right thing at all times. They deliver on their commitments to their members, donors, and partners. They ensure their internal values match their external actions. 
  • Purpose begins with passion: This is a calling not a job. They enjoy building relationships with their members and take pride in having an impact on their community.
  • Out of many, one: They treat everyone with respect. At TMF, their team comes from all walks of life. They have a wealth of experiences, beliefs, and backgrounds. 
  • We are fueled by gratitude: They understand that anything of great value, requires great sacrifice to achieve. They are deeply grateful for the sacrifices of our members--families of the fallen, veterans, volunteers, donors, and staff. 
  • Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo: With a mission as bold as theirs, comes occasional setbacks. When they fall short, they bounce back quickly.
