Patrick Stoup has served as chief executive officer of SAI in Gaithersburg, Maryland, since 2014. When he is not striving to meet immediate and long-term financial objectives at SAI, Patrick Stoup supports charities such as Fisher House Foundation.

Fisher House Foundation is a philanthropic group comprised of homes throughout the United States that welcome military members, veterans, and their families. These homes allow individuals to enjoy shelter, food, and other facilities at no cost while a loved one is receiving medical care. Over the years, the organization has saved veterans and their families roughly $320 million in expenses.

Beyond the organization’s commitment to free housing for military families, Fisher House Foundation also provides scholarship opportunities to members of the military and those closest to them. Through the group’s military children scholarship offerings, young adults receive nearly $1 million every year toward higher education. Fisher House Foundation also has established a number of scholarships specifically for spouses of military service members. These scholarships, made possible by a partnership with the National Military Family Association (NMFA), can be used for licensing purposes, certificates, continuing education credits, and more.
