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.
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.
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.

These guys provide a lot of real help to veterans, basic stuff, like filling out medical claims forms, which can be a major challenge. We've also participated together in employee innovation efforts at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
