A 501c3 Nonprofit Organization

Cheers to the Warriors is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization thats primary mission is providing financial assistance through monetary grants to U.S. veterans who have been injured in combat.  We also assist with applying for VA benefits, and helping to find and refer those veterans in need to other local organizations we have personally vetted, for more personalized assistance. Our team of volunteers includes several combat-injured veterans who speak with and understand the struggles newly injured veterans and their families are facing, and are available day or night for assistance.

The orginization was founded in 2014 by a disabled Marine Corps veteran and his wife. The couple sought to share their knowledge and personal experiences with others who may be struggling with their new lives. Since operations began, Cheers to the Warriors has provided tens of thousands of dollars of financial assistance to combat-injured veterans and is pround to have prevented 4 veteran suicides.
