Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Due to Covid-19 many of our in-person fund raisers were canceled in 2020. We changed our focus to online giving and virtual events. Our donations were down in 2020 as a result but we are hopeful this will rebound in 2021.

The Patriot Tour

Our largest fundraising campaign is an annual nationwide event called The Patriot Tour. The Patriot Tour consists of passing one American Flag through the 48 contiguous states in honor of all US Armed Forces members - Past, Present and Fallen. The Tour lasts 100 days and travels almost 14,000 miles. We raise awareness and financial assistance for injured American veterans and their families.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We raise awareness and financial support for injured American veterans and their families. We are a 100% volunteer organization with our administrative costs covered by generous corporate sponsors. We issue grants to veterans who have been vetted through our criteria. Financial grants are made directly to the veteran's creditors and possibly to the family for personal expenses. We hope to support another 50+ families in 2021.

We reach out to veterans organizations and VA staff making them aware of our ability to provide emergency financial grants for injured veterans.

We utilize the media and veteran organization websites to make folks aware that help is out there.

We are expanding our national team to bring on volunteers who have network connections and can take us into the next ten years. Our Executive Director is working hard to bring on fresh new faces with new ideas.
