Few have committed more to our nation than those who have worn the uniform of our Armed Forces, been wounded in the line of duty or given their lives on the battlefield. The men and women of our nation’s military include some of the most skilled, disciplined and courageous leaders in our nation. As free citizens who benefit from their dedicated service and sacrifices, it is a privilege to honor, respect and support our military population through our work with a number of outstanding organizations that assist returning veterans, the wounded, their families and the families of the fallen.
Our partners offer an array of services and programs in 5 key areas that we believe are essential in supporting service members, veterans and their families with both immediate and long-term issues they encounter in volunteering to serve our nation. Please note that the Foundation does not currently accept outside grant applications.
Veterans bring impressive skills and ethics to the civilian workplace. We support programs that ease military-civilian transitions through career training and mentoring, as well as continued service and leadership in local communities.
Healing for wounded veterans occurs beyond medical facilities. We fund therapeutic outdoor experiences like fly-fishing and winter sports, as well as retreats for veterans and their families to reconnect.
The strength of our troops is rooted in the strength of our military families. We honor them through college scholarships for dependents and spouses, as well as support for children of the deployed and for family members of the fallen.
Those who have been wounded in service deserve the best during their recovery. We fund essential resources such as adapted homes, service dogs and flights for the critically injured and their families.
The members of the Special Operations community are some of the most elite fighters in the world. We support them and their families with grants for financial and other assistance, as well as college scholarships for children of the fallen.
Since 2007, the Foundation has worked with a number of organizations that provide a variety of services and assistance to active duty troops, returning veterans, the wounded and military families. The organizations listed below include some of the top-rate charities that the Foundation has supported in recent years.
Spirit of America’s team, comprised primarily of veterans and former Special Operators, works in over 80 countries alongside deployed U.S. service members and diplomats to improve their safety and success by addressing critical local needs. Spirit of America (SoA) projects create trusted relationships that build security in the communities they work in and ultimately save American and local lives.
Spirit of America is the only 501(c)(3) non-profit working on the ground alongside U.S. service members and diplomats and in 2018 was recognized by the U.S. Congress as a partner in “supporting the missions of deployed United States personnel around the world.”
Since 2009 the Foundation has been a proud supporter of SoA’s important work, including assistance to our nation’s service members, embassy staff and local populations in the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus and beyond. Learn more about SoA directly from its founder and CEO in the blog post he authored for the Foundation and on their website.
