We’ve Reached Our Goal!
Posted on:

Dear Friends,

It brings me great pleasure to announce that because of the outpouring of support from friends like you, DVNF has reached the $50,000 goal for our service dog initiative!

Now, veterans with physical and emotional wounds will have a chance at a better life. For some of these veterans, a service dog will help them accomplish typical daily tasks that aren’t easy for them. For others, these canine companions can help them to overcome stressful social situations that can be truly agonizing without support.

But thanks to generous backers like you, men and women who stood in defense of our nation will get the help they need and deserve, and we cannot thank you enough for all that you’ve done, and all that you continue to do.

I will present our partners, Patriot PAWS, with a check in the coming weeks, and I can’t wait to put these funds in action for heroes in need.

Your gifts mean the world to us and to the veterans we serve, so your continued support is crucial to our mission. Thank you again for your patronage, but more importantly, your patriotism.

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom.

We achieve this mission by:

  • Offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans, and whose missions align with that of DVNF.
  • Providing supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort program and various empowerment resources.
  • Providing an online resource database that allows veterans to navigate the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service, as well as additional resources they need.
  • Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community, and educating the public accordingly.
