The Independence Fund takes pride in the numbers. To date, we have awarded more than 2,400 all-terrain wheelchairs, assisted more than 1,500 adaptive Veteran athletes, and directly impacted the lives of countless Veterans and Caregivers through our various programs. In 2019, we launched our newest program – Operation RESILIENCY – and began our efforts to end Veteran Suicide. We are always looking at ways to improve our organization and maximize our impact in the Veteran and Caregiver communities.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Independence Fund launched [email protected], an emergency program to directly support its catastrophically disabled Veterans, Caregivers and families. We shifted funding to assist our Heroes with emergent COVID-19 costs like mortgage/rent, utilities, childcare, transportation services, home WiFi services, household cleaning and upkeep, grocery and medical product delivery and streaming services for work and learning.
If you’ve been served by The Independence Fund in the past, or are currently involved in one of our programs, and have emergent needs, you may apply for assistance here.
