“FFV was founded by our CEO to honor his father, a career military serviceman, and to provide support to all veterans who have served our country. Our program offers an immediate safety net for veterans in need, filling a gap left by other supplement programs that often have long waiting times. With the help of private donations and grant funding, we are able to make a significant impact on the lives of struggling veterans. Our platform is unique in that it allows for almost instant access to essential support, and our team of dedicated veterans works with local agencies and shelters, such as the American Legion, to ensure that all veterans in emergency need receive the care and continued support they need, after they've gone through our program. We are in the early stages of creating two other programs one to target our Homeless Veterens and and second to support Women Veterans suffering from PTS.


Funds for Veterans (FFV) is a nonprofit organization registered as a 501(c)(3) entity. Our primary mission is to offer prompt financial aid to Veterans facing hardships. We provide a specialized FFV Veterans Aid card, which has certain restrictions. This card is conveniently distributed electronically via email or text message, and it can be utilized solely for the purchase of food and clothing. We offer direct payments for auto repairs, utilities, and temporary motel stays. We understand that these are critical needs for Veterans in challenging situations, and after our vetting process we strive to provide immediate financial assistance to address them.


We are currently facing an urgent need for funding to not only sustain our program but also provide essential assistance to awaiting veterans. Every donation, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated.

What are some sobering realities about US veterans?

An alarming statistic reveals that 22 veterans commit suicide daily, approximately one every 80 minutes. This number is even higher for Special Forces. Around 30% of veterans are living with disabilities due to their service. Additionally, 13-20% receive a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress; according to the VA, about 30% of combat veterans are grappling with PTS.

At FFV, we understand that even though we meticulously evaluate the veterans seeking our program's support, we can't possibly assist everyone. Nevertheless, we make every effort to ensure that each individual departs with more than just hope. Our service provides immediate aid, and we collaborate with veterans to explore long-term solutions beyond our program's scope.

Equity Statement

The FFV Emergency Assistance Program is actively seeking funds to support its two primary missions. At present, we have 23 local veterans who have been patiently waiting on our list for over 15 days due to insufficient funding. Additionally, there are 18 nationwide veterans, all of whom have been carefully evaluated and have provided documentary evidence to substantiate their needs. Our top priority is to attend to the needs of our local veterans before addressing the nationwide cases.

Apart from the urgent assistance, we are also focused on developing our new program called the "Safest Place App." This innovative app aims to provide a dedicated team of counselors, therapists, social workers, exercise instructors, workshops, and a peer-to-peer connecting feature. Our vision is to create a safe and supportive space where our female veterans suffering from PTS can find the help they need to embark on a journey of healing. Fortunately, we have already secured partnerships with willing contributors who have pledged their time and expertise to support this endeavor.
