WELCOME HOME RECEIVED $17,000 GRANT AWARD
With this funding, these organizations are able to offer a wide variety of services and support to disabled and at-risk veterans. The charities vary in size, mission, and focus, and grants were awarded based on the size of the grant request, and the direct impact they have on our Veteran communities.
“Our disabled and at-risk veterans deserve every bit of support and assistance they can receive during these difficult times,” said Ret. Sgt. Maj Joseph VanFonda, Chief Executive Officer of the DVNF. “While events and outreach programs continue to be an ongoing effort during the Covid 19 pandemic, our Grant program is a direct way to demonstrate our financial support for these non-profit organizations that provide much needed assistance to our homeless and disabled veterans and their families.”
The grant amounts range from $12,000 to $20,000. And the top grant was awarded to Salute INC which provides a Financial Assistance to post-9/11 veterans and their families as they readjust to civilian life. The full list of 2020 DVNF Grant recipients are listed below:
