Tyler Parten Memorial Fund

The donations to this foundation will be used to carry on Tyler's passion and heart to work with children and share his gift of music all over the world. His family will be using the money to send soldiers harmonicas, and other items Tyler used, to reach the children of Afghanistan, in addition to supporting missionaries and teachers in regions near to his heart, such as Africa and Morocco.

A tax-deductable foundation in Tyler Parten's name has been created to carry out his love and passion for children across the world. Donations can be made payable to the 1st Lt Tyler Parten Memorial Fund and mailed to C/O ARCF 1400 West Markham, Suite 206, Little, Rock, AR 72201.
