Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Military & Veterans Organizations, Veterans

Mission: Move America Forward (MAF) is the nation's largest grassroots pro-troop organization dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of our Armed. Our principal mission today is to provide military troop and K9 care packages with letters from grateful Americans to the troops deployed in combat areas around the world. While there are many admirable groups supporting our veterans, we are one of the few organizations left supporting active duty troops deployed to the front lines of Afghanistan, Iraq, and other areas around the world where are troops are in harm’s way. MAF is supported by hundreds of thousands of pro-troop activists, veterans, and military families all across the nation who share in our unwavering support. We work with other non-profits, military service organizations, corporate sponsors, community networks and private citizens to support our Military and demonstrate affirmatively our appreciation and admiration for their service to America.

Results: MAF has sent over 345 tons of care packages to deployed troops and continues to this day

Target demographics: Combat Deployed U.S. Military Service Members

Direct beneficiaries per year: Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force

Geographic areas served: Afghanistan, Iraq and any other place we have combat deployed troops

Programs: Military Troop and K9 Care Packages: We send care packages full of the most requested items our troops want with personal messages of support to remind them they are not forgotten by the American people. This enables us to send care packages filled with Gourmet Coffee, Premium Beef Jerky, Genuine Oreo Cookies, Flavored Gatorade, Mixed Nuts/Trail Mix bags, Baby Wipes and many other items our combat troops cannot get where they are. Enclosed with each care package are messages of support from the sponsor, letting them hear the personal feelings of appreciation from the American people. Each box is hand packed by our volunteers and may contain special seasonal items for the current holiday. K9 Care Packages also include eye-protecting “Doggles” & KONG Classic dog toys.

It was very nice receiving care packages from the move america foward foundation. It meant so much to us while being stationed while out in the middle east. The packages had so much to offer, like sweets, coffee in the bunches that taste so good. Also the literature and other added in items such as toiletries help out alot too. We also love reading the letters and cards that come with each one, lets us know there is many folks out there that truly care about us. I greatly recommend this foundation, and would like to thank those who supported this operation.

All of my brothers served in the Armed Services including 2 during times of war. My Mother would ship homegrown tomatoes to my brother serving as a Cobra pilot in “Nam.” Today, fewer American families have direct connection to service members so fewer “feel” the sacrifices they endure. Yesterday, I received a call from Move America Forward. I fully expected a solicitation but it was a personal “thank you” for my previous contribution and the feedback they get from the troops about the “gifts” from home. That is top notch in my book.

I received three care packages from this company, and they were wonderful to receive during my deployment. They had candy, coffee, calling cards, and hygiene products in it, as well as very nice thank you notes from the sponsors of these packages. I would recommend this very giving company to any of my deployed folks who are in need of moral.

I am married to a 20 year veteran of the Army. He told me how he loved getting something from home. I also have a niece that serves and she says the same thing. I am disabled and don't have a lot, but I really wanted to do something. I want to thank Move America Forward for the great thing that they are doing for our troops!

My dad was an Air Force staff sergeant! When he did talk about his experience it was usually about his comrades. He watched a lot of history channel movies and had many books. I loved him so much and was extremely proud of his service. Even though I was not even born yet when he served it was important to understand what it meant. I think all who serve deserve the utmost respect for their sacrifices for us. It is my pleasure to make this donation. Let freedom ring and God Bless!

A great group of people whom I met personally years ago as they crossed the USA raising awareness along the way...they help us support our troops like no other!
In times that they may think they've been forgotten our troops get help, comfort, and support from all of us through the good works of the Move America Forward folks!

As a Nam Vet '69 Army I have the utmost respect for all that serve their country. It's an honor, privilege, and the best decision I could have made in my life. I have returned from Country and have had 52 surgeries since (exposed to Agent Orange) and would do it again, just as I am sure our troops serving would do. And for your heart and service to our Nation I send you my respect, prayers and love........Please stay safe and thank you all again, for what you have chosen to give to your Country. Be proud, you are the best of the best and I have nothing but, the greatest respect for you all. Thank you again, God watch over you all and keep you in his graces. K. Gibson '69 Nam Vet

Anyone who steps forward to dedicate their life so me and my son's future can be safe and free, deserve more than I can give. This is just a small token of my love and appreciation to the men, women, and K9's to remind them "I will never forget them and I'm forever in debt to them".

You have kept our country safe a free . How people can disrespect all branches of the military by taking a knee at the National anthem is something I will never understand. I think that each one who does this should be FORCED into military service and find out just what you folks go through

My husband served in the Navy during WWII, He was very proud to have been part of the war effort. I checked on Charity Navigator and Move America Forward has a good standing. This is the second time I have had the honor of donating. Our service men and women deserve only our very best support. They give up SO much so we may enjoy our lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Arlene Samek

I have been sending care packages to our troops through "move america forward" for about two years now. It s such a good feeling to know that some comfort is being provided through this wonderful nonprofit. The care packages include a range of items from special boot socks to coffee, snacks, personal hygiene products and much more. I have also received severai thank you letters from the troops and that will definitely bring a tear to the eye. I can't think of a better nonprofit to support.

I have worked with Move America Forward helping with packing care packages. Which, I've gotta be honest their system - very efficient. If you have special request to send service member who you know Move America Forward will send individual care packages too. All you need is a name and address, bomb care package delivered! I enjoyed learning and working with the outreach director whose passion to support others is second to none.

I am very appreciative of Move America Forward. I have only to write a check and I know that our military will be remembered with care packages from home. I have received notes of thanks from the recipients and their gratitude is overwhelming. Thank you Move America Forward for all that you do.
