What we do? What is our Mission?

At AMVETS, our mission is twofold: to support our veterans and their families, and to raise crucial funds for our programs. We are proud to inform you that every donation we receive is not only tax-deductible but also plays a vital role in furthering our cause.

For over 75 years, we have been dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifices of our veterans. Our programs encompass a wide range of essential services, including healthcare, housing assistance, educational programs, job training initiatives, and much more. We firmly believe that every veteran deserves the utmost care, respect, and support.

When you choose to donate to AMVETS, you not only contribute to improving the lives of our veterans but also help us generate the funds necessary to sustain our programs. These funds enable us to expand our reach, develop new initiatives, and provide even greater assistance to veterans and their families in need.

Furthermore, we are committed to transparency and accountability in our operations. As a registered nonprofit organization, we adhere to strict financial standards and regulations. This ensures that your donations are utilized efficiently and effectively to achieve maximum impact.

By supporting AMVETS, you are investing in a brighter future for our veterans and their families. Your tax-deductible donation directly contributes to the success and growth of our programs, enabling us to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who have selflessly served our country.

Some Organization We Work With

Our National Service Officers help “cut the red tape” when a veteran, or a veteran’s dependent is attempting to obtain compensation and benefits from the Veterans’ Administration. This service is at no charge to our veterans.

Through our Americanism program, we work in conjunction with AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary and the Freedoms Foundation to educate our youth on America’s history to instill national pride and patriotism.

Our Memorial Carillon Bells are located in many National and State veterans’ cemeteries across the nation, as well as overseas. They toll to remind us of the sacrifices made by our troops to preserve our freedom.

Our Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service (VAVS) volunteers work tirelessly at VA health care facilities to serve hospitalized and disabled veterans and their families with compassion.

Task Force DVD provides safe entertainment for our troops stationed overseas.
