Mission: Mvat's mission is to provide awareness, funds and services to injured armed forces service individuals and/or to organizations that help these individuals during the period of time between active military duty and transition to civilian life.
Programs: Mvat foundation uses funds raised to invest directly into its heroes linked program. Funds are also awarded in the form of grants to carefully selected and vetted organizations. Mvat analyzes funding proposals, scrutinizing for organizational financial health, program efficiencies, outcomes, and good governance practices. The heroes linked program, www. Heroeslinked. Org, was created to provide a unique opportunity for veterans, servicemen and women, and their families in the transition from active duty to civilian life. This online resource gives veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses access to personal, phone-based professional development mentoring with private sector professionals. Through the use of proprietary software, a matching algorithm identifies areas of interest, experience, and goals between veterans and mentor advisors.
