After learning more about PVA's programs and services, I was amazed by the scope of services PVA provides to help Veterans. As President and CEO of my own corporation, I particularly became interested in their Vocational Rehab Program to help Veterans reenter the workplace so they can live successful and fulfilling lives.

I reviewed the financial information. It shows that 75% of funds go to programs that support veterans, their families and caregivers.

I have checked Paralyzed Veterans on another sight and it looks as if over 85% is used for fund raising and administration, leaving a maximum of 15% for aiding veterans.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By checking out charitynavigator.org

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

cut all extra expenses and supply at least 70% to the purpose of helping Vets
