Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, Military & Veterans Organizations, National Security, Veterans

Mission: Move America Forward (MAF) is a nonprofit military charity based in Sacramento, California and the nation's largest grassroots pro-troop organization dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces. Our principal mission today is to provide care packages and 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 began by holding pro troop rallies and sending special coffee and cookies packages directly to the troops. Our mission and care packages quickly transformed into a year round military care package operation providing the most requested items and the taste of home to our heroes. Conducting national holiday bus tours, led delegations to Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, taking Gold Star Parents to Iraq, working with military servicemen and women, pro troop companies, service organizations, and many other supporters from all across the nation to benefit our troops. Move America Forward has sent over 388 tons of care packages to deployed troops and continues to this day. 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. It is our strong belief that American citizens must be enlisted in the effort to let our troops know that they are in our hearts and prayers and that we will defend their service and honor them here on the home front while they protect America on the front lines overseas.

Results: MAF has sent over 388 tons of care packages to deployed troops and continues to this day to 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.

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

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

MOVE AMERICA FORWARD IS A MOST REMARKABLE, OUTSTANDING, RELIABLE NON-PROFIT TO WORK WITH. ALWAYS follows through as promised and fulfills its commitment. I have been donating regularly and have recognized that they will pack up and ship care packaages to troops upon individual requests from its website or upon receiving requests for units submitted by the unit's Chaplains for sharing among the troops without any compensation or donation directly made to Move America Forward. I personally know of over 75 care packages which were packed and shipped to an active duty Navy Seal on board his vessel for him to distribute and share among his unit. Move America Forward goes above and beyond and it is completely and totally dedicated to supporting active duty military troops through the world. Sincerely, Judith Meyers, Winter Park, FL

I feel humbled & yet blessed to give back to our men & women in uniform. When I donate these care packages I picture the expressions of joy, laughter , nostalgia on the recipients faces. This is the least we can do to thank them for their service. The staff is always cooperative,, prompt & answer any inquisitors I might have. Don’t we all want to bring a smile to someone’s face who is serving our country when they taste a Girl Scout cookie, their favorite candy or just open a care package?? This is our time !! This is our small “ thank you”, God Bless “!!

Thiis organization does a wonderful job of supporting our troops and their canine helpers. I appreciate that every dollar makes a difference -- you can choose from many different giving levels. They make it easy, and you get feedback to know that the packs make a difference to our troops. Happy to support this group as they support our American heroes.

I requested Move America Forward care packages for deployed Service Members at a base where I work. There is more than one deployment base in this country and I got a call from Scott Raab asking if the packages he was scheduled to send were for the base I requested or for another base. It turns out that they were for another base. Scott was so great about making sure that both bases got care packages. While talking with him, I realized that the people at this organization go way above and beyond to be sure that our Service Members feel that people are looking out for them. What a great guy and what a fabulous organization. Thank you so much for all that you do!!

I reached out to MAF upon arriving to a deployed location where I would be working with numerous other personnel from my career field. Their response was to send an enormous amount of Care Packages, full of Girl Scout cookies, various snacks, personal hygiene supplies, and much more. The efforts, sacrifices, and resources which were voluntarily donated by anyone and everyone supporting MAF is very much appreciated. To those at MAF, thank you for what you do. To some of your contributors or workers, this may seem little, insignificant, not that big of a deal. Let me tell you that what you all did is awesome and amazing. Thank you!

Thank you so much for creating such a wonder program to help the soldiers. My cousin who I call my daughter is is in Saudi Arabia called her cousin who was a special figure in her life. She asked if she and the family will send her package while she was overseas. They said know it will be to expensive. She gave me her address as well I sent packages. Than I remembered my son served in Iqua.
So I went looking for help for services for soldiers serving abroad. I found Move America. She received the packages. Thank you so much this mean a lot. It special more ways than ones I am an amputee and can’t get out much when she called me crying stating how her family treated her my heart was heavy. She lots her mom in a tragic accident.

My family and I have been helping out at MAF since 2014. I love bringing my kids here as it's one of the few places that allow young children to serve (we started serving here when my son was 8). Everything is organized and it's easy to understand what to do. The kids love packing boxes with all the different items/treats. I've come with just my family as well as with several different groups that I'm a part of. I recently had family in town so we planned an afternoon to pack boxes. Our little family packed over 200 boxes for the troops. It's always fun and the time goes by quickly. MAF is our favorite charity.

The company that I work for put together a team of volunteers to go and prepare some care packages for our troops. It was a no brainer for me! My son in law is serving in the Air Force and my daughter is also serving(not the one married) in the Air Force. I know how much it meant to them whenever they would receive these packages. It is hard for them when they are deployed because for us, life goes on....I know it seems silly but that is one thing my son in law said. They are there, in the desert or wherever, and their life is completely different. They miss alot back home. They miss alot with their families. It is an ultimate sacrifice and the work that is done by Move America Forward helps it not seem so painful. Thank you for what you do!

This is a truly great organization. I have been donating to MAF a couple of times a year for a couple of years now. It provides such great support to our troops stationed overseas. The troops always send thank you notes and MAF forwards them on to me. The troops are so very thankful for the packages and for the contact and support from home. I do this because I believe they are the top public organization that provides support to our troops stationed overseas and none of the money MAF gets is wasted. MAF makes it so easy for us at home to provide support to the troops who are putting their lives on the line for us everyday. MAF even provides care packages for the K9 troops as well. A truly dedicated group of volunteers run this organization and I can't thank them enough.

Move America forward is one of the best organizations supporting our troops on the front lines with care packages and just the show of love to the troops. I served 17 years in the military 5 years overseas and when I received packages from home from friends from family from strangers it was always brought a smile to my face and that's what these guys are continuing. You couldn't ask for a better group of people to do such just for the fact that there are retired military members in this community of move America forward. so if you have any questions or you have any thoughts this would be the program or the company to use in order to get packages out to our sailors soldiers airmen and Marines that are overseas fighting the good fight protecting our country and our way.

MAF is a one of a kind organization. Providing morale building and uplifting packages of hard to get sundries and other supplies to our troops is a very noble cause. Not only are our Human warriors remembered but also our Canine warriors as well with pet treats, toys, blankets and other essentials. We have received heart felt "Thank You" notes both electronically and hand written from recipients who truly appreciated the gesture and could use the carefully hand picked items included in their packages. Based upon all of the non-profit auditing organizations, MAF routinely places at the top for their application of funding as well as low administration costs. We continue to support MAF and make sure our Friends are aware of their great services. Keep up the fantastic service you provide.

Move America Forward is a great non-profit serving our troops overseas. It allows us to thank these brave men and women for their Service, Sacrifice and Support. It also lets them know They are remembered each and every day. MAF also allows us to send these reminders at times other than major Holidays when troop morale may be waning. Of course, the festive Holiday Boxes are also great.
We have received personal Thank You notes from recipients acknowledging what a lift me up these packages are to them. We will continue to support Move America Forward and their Good Work!

I volunteer for this organization whenever possible with other members of my church and we always have a great time and meet wonderful people. The staff are great and always accomodating to our schedule. The group has many great items they send to the troops which I see going into the boxes when I pack them up myself. Every time I go there to pack boxes, I marvel at something new they are sending to the troops that I've never seen before, it's always interesting to put myself in the mindset of someone serving overseas, and then I pick up a bottle of this and think how I could use it if I was thousands of miles away from home, how useful it would be to receive this and how much it would help me while I'm far away from my family and friends. I love hanging out at this location and would recommend this charity to anyone looking for a wholesome, meaningful, and spiritually fulfilling way to donate their time or money to a good cause.

I volunteered to pack boxes for our troops during the Christmas season 2019. Move America Forward is in a class of its own. The many volunteers, from all walks of life, made the event extraordinary. Members of our Military, seniors, students, retirees, FedEx managers all worked together To show our troops how much they are appreciated. Following that event, I was “commissioned “ to write “thank you” notes that would be included in boxes. That simple gesture made ME feel a part of how this country, our Military, sacrifices to keep our American dream alive.

As a member of a military family, I know how important the morale of our troops is and getting a care package is a big deal! As a family we sent a Move America Forward Care package to a soldier and were so excited when we received a thank you note from the soldier we had sponsored letting us know that they had received and loved the package we sent. That just made my day!

When I think of what would make me want to wake up with a sour back, and hands covered in paper cuts it’s a gratifying day prior volunteering at Move America Forward. Sure packing boxes on an assembly line and loading them on to pallets could be done by machines, but the shared stories, joy, goofing off, and day of knowing that we all did something to put a smile on some Service member’s face made it all worth it.

I’ll be back packing, taping, and loading care packages again for sure.

Though this may seem so common and simple, but I do appreciate our troops. I was a laugh enforcement officer, so I know what it is like having to be on alert while on duty. Yet, our military troops are on alert 24/7. If it weren't for the troops, our freedoms would not be what they are; period...! I hope that the packages these soldiers receive put a smile on their faces.
Though I do not know one soldier out there working for us, I do appreciate what they are doing and they are all in my prayers. Believing in God should be a big help to them. Someone to talk to at least. God bless them all.

It was greatly appreciated and 100% unexpected to receive a care package while serving overseas.

I found Move America Forward several years ago online, and was delighted with their program to supply care boxes to our troops all year long, but especially on holidays when the troops really miss being home. Writing a note to go with the packages is a wonderful way to let our troops know how much we appreciate all that they sacrifice for our country. I have selected Amazon Smile for MAF so that whenever I shop on Amazon, they contribute to MAF. This is a wonderful charity that I contribute to happily.

While I believe you are a good organization let me be candid. When your receipt page takes three pages and use up color ink it is a total waste. We are able to give to organizations like yours because we are frugal. Reduce your receipt to one or two pages with no pics. If we wanted pics we would go to your website; they are not helpful on a receipt.

I've supported Move America Forward for years whenever I can because they do such a great job of showing our troops that someone is thinking about them and cares! They are serving in some of the worst places on earth to keep America safe and do a thankless, dangerous job. MAF also gives thoughtful, useful gifts that our troops can truly use. Not just niceties from home but items like flea-collars for keeping sand fleas off! (Who would've thought of that?!) It's just a small thing to show these young men and women that they aren't forgotten. If I was serving in one of these God-awful places, I'd sure love to receive something like these MAF "care-packages" contain. A bit of home while away in some of the harshest, unsafe environments in the world. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

I have been donating to MAF on a monthly basis for several years. I do this because I believe they are the top public organization that provides support to our troops stationed overseas. I have received numerous notes from recipients thanking me for providing the monthly packages and I can't tell you how much I appreciate them for saying this. These folks are putting their lives on the line for us and I feel the very least we can do is to provide a bit of home when they are so far away.

I am extremely disappointed that your organization promised to send me a gift certificate to the restaurant I chose when I called to donate and here we are at the end of January 2019 and nothing has been sent. I also called your customer service number back in December to follow-up on this, and nothing was done. While it was my pleasure to have donated, it makes me a little hesitant to donate to you in the future. My opinion is that if you did not keep your word in sending me what you promised and offered in return for my donation, how do I know you used my money to send care packages?

Hi Marco, I am very concerned about your comment. It sounds like you participated in a radio drive for Christmas. As stated on the Radio stations website it can take them a little while to send out up to 6 weeks after the drive which ends in Dec.

My husband was a young Marine, who often received packages from home. He told me that he looked forward to getting mail and cookies and other goodies which he shared with his buddies. It made a difference to him to know that he wasn't forgotten, and that those back home thought about him. My gift is in his honor. I want our troops to know how much they are appreciated and remembered. Move America Forward fulfills my hopes that every soldier feels remembered, particularly at this time of the year.

My husband and I have made it a custom to send boxes to the troops at least twice a year. We send a male and a female box that we each fill. On the 4th of July we host a Support Our Troops party at our home, we've had up to 200 guests attend. We also place about 500 flags at our club for every Memorial Day, Veterans Day, 4th of July, Flag Day, Presidents Day as well as any golf tournaments that support our Troops. This year we are happy to support this nonprofit organization. As we get older, we find it difficult to get around, shop for the box and get it out to the post office. This is a wonderful idea, I never want these men women to think that we, Americans have forgotten them. God Bless Our Troops

I have been donating towards care packages for several years now. It's important that we as US citizens show our support and appreciation for our troops. Every and now then I am blessed enough to receive a thank you note from a recipient of a care package made with my donation. Care packages are supposed to boost their morale but receiving a note certainly gives me a thrill and a sense of pride knowing I helped a service member. Thanks MAF for ensuring our troops get the support and care they deserve!

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 like that the K9 soldiers are being taken care of also!

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!
