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.
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.
HillVets’ mission is to empower veterans to begin and advance in “second service” careers in our nation’s Capitol through networking, mentorship, employment and educational opportunities as well as to grow the representation of veterans, with their valuable and unique perspectives and experiences, across government, politics and policy. The Foundation supports the HillVets House Fellowship program which places veterans that have recently separated from service or who are completing educational opportunities as Fellows in Congressional Offices to learn about advocacy, policy and how the Hill works, and later assists them in securing permanent positions.
