Veterans and Military Service Members

Organizations focused on wounded troops services, military social services, and military family support.

Our expert analysts have curated a list of highly rated charities providing a variety of services, including mental health and supportive services, financial assistance for food, utilities, and medical expenses. Please click on the names of the high-performing charities included in our list to learn more about their mission, programs, and services and to make a donation via the Giving Basket.

Veterans are brave individuals that served in any of the five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard). These individuals fought for our freedoms and provided services and aid to those in need.

 

In November, we honor the sacrifices our military veterans have made. Originally called Armistice Day, Veterans Day falls on the anniversary of World War I. The holiday was renamed in 1954 to honor the service of all military members. 

 

Each year, Americans donate more than $2.5 billion annually to over 40,000 American charities with military-related missions.
