Support Our Veterans Fund

Every day the GoFundMe community comes together to help those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. People fundraise on GoFundMe to help our Veteran heroes navigate unemployment, homelessness, and mental health crises, along with helping them achieve their dreams.

When you make a tax-deductible donation to the Veteran’s Fund, you help Veterans, their families, or community members who have started their own personal GoFundMe fundraisers to seek support for our Veterans, and nonprofits helping Veterans in need. Funds raised are distributed as grants directly to verified fundraisers helping Veterans with basic expenses for food, rent, utilities, or clothes, and to verified projects and nonprofits focused on supporting our Veteran heroes.

We verify every GoFundMe fundraiser and nonprofit to which we grant and to ensure that $0.96 of every dollar you donate goes directly to helping our Veterans. We will post updates here about the individuals and organizations your donations have helped.

If you have fundraisers that may be eligible for a grant from this fund and it meets the charitable class criteria (as defined by the IRS), we have likely already sourced it, and it is in the review queue. If you are unsure your fundraiser is eligible, please submit it using this form.
