Mission: Through the DAV Charitable Service Trust, you help fulfill a focused and noble purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. To carry out this responsibility, the DAV Charitable Service Trust supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs, enhances research and mobility for veterans with amputations and spinal cord injuries, benefits aging veterans, aids and shelters homeless veterans and evaluates and addresses the needs of veterans wounded in recent wars and conflicts as well as their caregivers.
Results: Be assured that support of the DAV Charitable Service Trust is used with the greatest efficiency. Only 3% of our 2013 expenditures were used for fundraising and administration, demonstrating extremely responsible management of the funds entrusted to the Trust. Expenditures for program services for our disabled heroes represented 97% of our total costs last year.
Target demographics: Just as our troops provide cover for the wounded on the field of battle, we must provide cover for those who come home sick and injured.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Thousands
Geographic areas served: Nationwide
Programs: The Trust continues to seek effective ways to improve the lives of ill and injured veterans and their families. To date, funded programs and projects aid in providing a number of necessities to the veteran clients in each service region. Grants are typically distributed to offer: *food, shelter and other necessary items for homeless or at-risk veterans; *mobility items or other assistance specific to veterans with blindnessm, vision loss, hearing loss or amputations; *qualified therapeutic or recreational activities for veterans and/or their families; *physical and psychological rehabilitation projects; and *other forms of support as appropriate for short or long-term relief.
