Nonprofit Overview

Mission: The DAV National Service Foundation develops financial resources for the assistance, aid, maintenance, care, support and rehabilitation of sick and injured veterans and their dependents, either directly or by contributions to the service programs of the Disabled American Veterans National Organization or its Departments and Chapters.

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: Founded in 1920, DAV has become the most trusted advocate for the veteran population by tirelessly serving our nation’s injured and ill veterans. The DAV National Service Foundation (NSF), incorporated in 1986, plays a special role in providing the long-term financial stability necessary to support DAV at the local, state and national levels. A core mission of the Foundation is to support DAV in being there every day to meet the immediate needs of our veterans. This includes free, professional assistance with disability claims and benefits, free transportation to and from medical appointments and many other services vital to veterans and their families. Increasing the public’s awareness about the Foundation is extremely important. When the American people know about our efforts, they gain a better understanding of the needs of ill and injured veterans and their families. Their hearts and minds then become open to helping the Foundation ensure that these veterans are properly cared for in the long term.

I donated in honor of my Father who is a Disabled Veteran, and have seen first hand in multiple states, the transportation and claims assistance they provide to Veterans. These are critical services that the DAV has been providing in part or in full for almost 100 years. An incredible legacy. Both my father and I received nice notes in response to the donation.

I sent a check to DAV in Cincinnati, Ohio Feb 5,2017 and it was cashed on 2/8/2017 and every one that I call gives me the run around. I also have a neighbor that gives on a regular bases and she has not received anything. Whats up? We thought we were Helping our Veterans. Looks like something is amiss! thank you,
