Listed here are the most common questions we get
All Veterans with an Honorable Discharge. Eligibility is based on discharge type, registering with your local VA and a demonstrated need for the type of assistance you’re requesting.
No. We don’t cap assistance, however, we do not give out cash. All assistance is goods or services based.
Unfortunately no. Our foundation is setup to assist Veterans. If you’re getting out and know you will need assistance, then we recommend you contact us prior to your discharge to start our process moving.
Most definitely. Proof can be one of two documents. Either of the following will work.
ID card issued by the VA or DOD indicating your status. (contractor IDs are NOT proof and will not be accepted as proof)
A copy of your DD 214 or NGB 22 (must indicate type of discharge) plus a picture ID issued by a State or Fed Gov entity.
Yes. Here’s why. The only way for us to track assistance and comply with IRS regulations is to be able to show where the funds where spent. We won’t sell or share your information with anyone except authorized law enforcement agency’s with proper legal standing to receive your information. Simply asking us for it won’t work.
If you receive assistance, you’re automatically signed up as a member.
Great question. Donations are split into 2 funds (unless a donation is marked by the donor for a specific program).
25% will go to the General fund. This is the fund we use for operating the foundation.
75% will remain in the State it was raised. This fund is split into two funds, 75% to the County they are raised in and 25% to the State Fund.
Donors may earmark up to 50% of their donation for a specific program.
Yes. Using our donor portal you’ll have access to all your information and have the ability to change it.
If you go to our Legal page, you can download our IRS Determination letter, our State and Federal filings.
Well I can tell you that we don’t sell or share your info for any purpose other than authorized law enforcement with proper legal standing to have that information. Meaning, they need a court order to see it.
Yes. Our EIN number is 83-1670836. You can search the IRS database to confirm this. www.irs.gov
