Creating a new narrative for veterans: Empowerment
Traditionally, support for our Veteran community has focused on suicide prevention, substance abuse, and homelessness interventions. While this is urgent and life-changing work, it has painted an unfortunate picture where many people associate these issues with Veterans as a whole.
Our mission is to change the public perception about what it means to support veterans. Through proactive programming that facilitates successful transition out of military service, our veterans can continue to be elite leaders who add incredible value to society.
This is the truth about our nation's heroes. We can leverage the many outstanding values, traits and skills honed in military service to build the civic leaders of tomorrow. And with your help we can tell the world about it!
All donations go directly to five highly-vetted nonprofits that help veterans transition out of military service and into their civilian life. These organizations deliver programming within the 3 pillars of successful transition, which are mental wellness, workforce development, and community building.
*Donations are processed using the lowest financial processing fee on the market 1.9%+$.30 (industry standard is 4.9%+$.30) to ensure that the maximum amount of your gift goes directly to our veterans. The donation service provider, WeGive, operates off of optional tips, so you know exactly where your money goes.
