16 Veterans Supporting Charities Received MVAT Grants in 2015

The MVAT Foundation provided grants to 16 best performing Veteran Serving Organizations in 2015. Acting as a fiduciary for our donors and supporters, the beneficiary selection process was deliberative. The Beneficiaries Committee analyzed funding proposals under such criteria as organizational financial health, program efficiencies and outcomes, and good governance practices. Emphasis was placed on smaller charities or is restricted to specific programs where the MVAT Foundation grant can make a material difference in that organization’s ability to carry out their impactful programs.
