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.

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.
