I have volunteered and donated to many nonprofit organizations, but have felt truly connected to the end cause with Move America Forward. They are great to volunteer for and donate to, as I know my time and money is being properly allocated and used effectively. There is no better way to say thank you to the deployed troops than to pack a box of goodies and send a personalized and hand written thank you. A wonderful organization and cause!

As a veteran I am grateful for how many nonprofit groups are out there. I am specifically thankful for Move America Forward and the selfless work they are committed to. The work that they have done is nothing short of amazing for my fellow vets.

According to CharityNavigator.org, Move America Forward spends only 53% of donations on delivering services to our servicemen & women. Over 38% is spent on administrative costs. Together, these metrics earn MAF a rating of one star, out of five. I will not make further donations until I see this ratio improve dramatically.

Dear Former Donor 7, thank you for your review. Please know that we are currently working on getting our Charity Navigator rating updated by providing information to them. The current rating was done with out any input on our part. The poor rating is because of this. Please check again in the coming weeks, we have already contacted Charity Navigator and begun the process of getting accurately scored. Thank you for supporting the troops. I can tell you it truly makes a difference. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

I am a teacher and informed the student council of Move America Forward. The students have many family members that are serving or have served in the Military.. The students became more aware of how important it was to send packages to the troops. Move America Forward is a very great organization to be involved with.

As a Breast Cancer Survivor the best support groups I have found are the ones like MAF that have us do productive things like packing boxes for our troops. While helping others we are helping ourselves and we have fun doing it!! My Father was a WWII Navy Veteran so the troops are dear to me! I found this wonderful Non-Profit through my friend Debbie Crowe and her Mother Barbara!!!

As a long-ago-military brat, I enjoy putting the packages together for the troops with my Mom. The people at MAF are professional and kind. They accomodate us "little old ladies" of the Elder Craftsman group, we have a lot of fun sweating together, making a contest out of it. The best part of packing boxes is when the school children write personal letters to the troops, tears are normal on those days! I appreciate the volunteering opportunity it gives retired (and active) military families as well.

Move America Forward is doing a wonderful job for our troops that are stationed overseas. The staff and volunteers at MAF supply more than just snacks, socks, and coffee, but a piece of home. Every care package is hand-packed with love and sends the message to the service member that they are not forgotten. Thanks, MAF, for allowing us to participate in giving back to those who give some much for so many and ask for so little.

Move America Forward is an outstanding organization who follows through on their mission. Their primary focus is to support our men and women in uniform during deployment by coordinating regular shipments of care packages to the combat zone. They are also a large supporter of ensuring America’s Gold Star families and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom are not forgotten. In a day and age when it’s become too easy to forget that we are still a nation at war, the MAF team works tirelessly to ensure America’s truest heroes are being taking care of, and never forgotten!

This non-profit group does wonderful work. Care packages and letters boost morale of those serving overseas, and let them know there is still support and generosity pouring from "back home". Thank you Move America Forward for providing the means to send all these wonderful deserving servicemen and women a little love from home.
