We have received a lot of questions from customers and friends on how to give back to those who have sacrificed themselves in the defense of our nation.  Below are a few charities we recommend for anyone looking to help those who’ve given their all.

Military Charities

Wounded Warrior Project

This is probably the largest military foundation to date.  These guys have done a great job of trying to help wounded warriors returning back from combat.  They do everything from providing housing and jobs to entertainment and support to those in need.  To donate go to https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/Default.aspx?tsid=66&campaignSource=WEBSITE

Fisher House Foundation

The Fisher house foundation provides affordable housing to military families whose loved ones are recovering in a hospital.  This is especially important when families are required to stay for long periods of time away from home to support their recovering service members.  To donate go to http://www.fisherhouse.org/donate/

The Semper Fi Fund

These guys provide wounded Marines and their families with added income to help with the recovery process.  This organization has streamlined its donations so that the maximum amount of funds go directly to the families in need.  To donate go to https://semperfifund.org/donate

Support a Soldier

SAS has taken a new approach and gives much-needed equipment to service members currently deployed.  The way it works is a service member will put in a request for the equipment they need.  SAS then finds a donor to fill the request and ships the equipment directly to the requestor.  To donate go to http://www.supportasoldier.us/donatehowtocontribute.html

Special Operations Charities

Navy SEAL Foundation

The Navy SEAL Foundation’s mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support to the NSW community.  These guys have done great things for SEALs and their families and provide great assistance to some of our nation’s most elite soldiers.  To donate go to http://www.nswfoundation.org/donate.htm

Green Beret Foundation

The Green Beret Foundation provides unconventional resources to facilitate the special needs of our wounded, ill, and injured and imparts unique support to the Special Forces community in order to strengthen readiness and uphold Green Beret traditions and values.  To donate go to http://greenberetfoundation.org/donations.html

Special Operations Warrior Foundation

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and education and family counseling to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel who die in operational or training missions and provide immediate financial support to severely wounded Special Operations personnel and their families.  To donate go to http://www.specialops.org/?page=Make_A_Donation

Heroes of Tomorrow

National Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation
