American Fundraising Foundation Has Donated Over $658K to Nonprofits for Veterans Support
In honor and recognition of Veteran’s Day, the American Fundraising Foundation is proud to announce it has donated $658,797 to nonprofits in support of America’s Veterans. Over 20 organizations received unrestricted donations to help provide job placement, health care, therapy programs, prosthetics, housing and food services, mental health assistance and direct support for veterans’ families.
Organizations such as Dive Pirates, Patriot Military Family Foundation, NineLine; K-9 for Camo, Next Op Vets, EOD Warrior Foundation, the Prosthetic Foundation and many others received donations from AmFund.
Each year, AmFund carefully chooses to support a wide range of organizations through sponsorship of events, year-end financial grant distribution, virtual silent auctions and other programs. It provides educational support to nonprofits through webinars, podcasts, topical lecture series and one-on-one development to help enhance organizations’ fundraising abilities and goal setting objectives.
“We are deeply grateful to all our veterans for their service to our country. Our commitment to them is unwavering and is at the very root of why we support worthy nonprofits that provide exceptional services to the entire veteran community and their families,” said Deborah Marshall, SVP and COO of AmFund. “We recognize the sacrifices that have been and continue to be made for our freedom.
“Veteran’s Day is an opportunity for us to salute all those that serve. It is also a time for us to honor AmFund’s founder, Wade West, who served as an Army Captain during the Vietnam War and received a Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and Soldier’s Medal during his service. After he was wounded in combat, he conducted the nightly news briefings for the international media in Saigon and Cu Chi,” Marshall continued. “It was his vision that allowed AmFund to be established and make significant contributions to organizations throughout the U.S. We are grateful that he along with his wife Barbara, continues to shepherd our organization as we expand our support of nonprofits.”
The American Fundraising Foundation, a GuideStar Platinum rated 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has donated over $36 million to other service-providing nonprofits over the course of the past 20 years and was recognized by NonProfit PRO in 2020 as Fundraiser of the Year.
