MVAT Makes Grants to 13 Veterans Support Charities in 2014
We are pleased to announce that in 2014 the Military and Veterans Appreciation Trust Foundation (MVAT) made grants to 13 charities that support Veterans.
There are many requirements that charities must meet to receive funding from the MVAT Foundation. Acting as a fiduciary for our donors, the beneficiary selection process is deliberative. Funding requests were analyzed by such criteria as organizational financial health, program efficiencies and outcomes, and good governance practices. Emphasis was placed on smaller organizations where the MVAT grant can make a material difference in that group’s ability to carry out their Veterans support programs.
The MVAT Foundation is pleased to announce that the following charities received funding in 2014:
- Air Compassion for Veterans
- The Airpower Foundation’s Snowball Express
- The Association of the United States Army Greater Los Angeles Chapter’s Family Programs
- The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation’s Character Development Program
- Gary Sinise Foundation
- The Green Beret Foundation
- Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ Habitat for Heroes program
- K9s for Warriors
- Monterey Bay Veterans
- New Directions for Veterans
- The Pathway Home
- Veterans Transition Center of Monterey
- Wooden Boats for Veterans
The 13 charities represent a near even split between California-based groups that serve Veterans and their families in local communities as well as Veterans from across the country, and those located elsewhere in the United States but whose programs have a national impact.
Thank you to all of our contributors who made another great year possible, and we wish all of you a very happy holiday season.
