Caregiver Retreat
The Lt. Dan Weekend

Filmed in the South Carolina Lowcountry, the character of Lt.

This week long community-based event, which begins in Beaufort, SC, closes with a concert in North Charleston, SC performed by the Lt. Dan Band and is attended by thousands! The INDY Fund is now producing this event for its 5th consecutive year!

The Independence Fund has a 100% volunteer staff and a Board of Directors comprised entirely of combat Veterans. Our organization's administrative costs in 2013 were less than 1%, meaning more than 99% of every dollar we received went directly to a Veteran -
thanks to amazing people and communities like YOU!
