How You Can Honor and Support Our Veterans

There are many worthwhile charities out there and it's often hard to know where our donations are most needed.  
There are many things to consider, so you may want to visit a site that will explain How to Pick a Military or Veteran Association.

If supporting our military is on your list, here are some great organizations to consider.  


USO operates more than 180 state-of-the-art locations around the world, where thousands of service members can feel closer to family and friends back home. The demands on our centers are increasing every day. Your help is urgently needed to provide our brave men and women in uniform with the essential services they need to keep going!


 K9s For Warriors

K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our Warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post-9/11.
Our goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.


 Semper Fi Fund
Donate now and The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, with support from GoDaddy, will “Double Down for Veterans” by matching every donation until December 31st, up to $10 Million. The Semper Fi Fund is delighted to announce Double Down for Veterans – a matching campaign with the potential to raise $20 million for wounded, critically ill and injured veterans. The challenge, issued by The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, with support from GoDaddy, is one of the largest matching campaigns in the history of veteran nonprofits. Beginning November 1st through December 31, 2016, donations to the Semper Fi Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.
