Wishes granted and dreams come true for military and veteran families

A Million Thanks
A Million Thanks supports our injured military veterans by granting wishes that make their lives more enjoyable.

Dreams for Veterans
Dreams for Veterans serves our nation’s military communities by giving back to terminally ill veterans and their families through the fulfillment of a final dream.

Final dreams range from basic need items (like a working appliance or mobility scooter) to bedside reunions, final vacations with family, “meet and greets” with personal heroes or reconnecting with aspects of former military service.

A dream not only serves the recipient, but also brings comfort and peace to caregivers, loved ones, hospice professionals, veterans affairs and service officers, and all those they serve in communities across the nation.

We serve veterans in all 50 states and partner with America’s hospice professionals and veterans organizations to meet the unique needs of our nation’s veterans.

Hero's Wish (Veteran Tickets Foundation - Vet Tix)
Hero's Wish allows members who meet certain criteria to request specific tickets for any single event (NOTE: We are not capable of fulfilling meet and greets, trips, cruises, hotel stays or flights), and have donors fulfill that request either by ticket donation or by donating money to make the hero's wish come true.

The Hero's Wish program can be used by active duty military personnel (one month prior to, while on leave from or one month after their deployments), severely wounded warriors and the families of men and woman killed in action (KIA).

After submitting a Hero's Wish, Vet Tix will work with the veteran to verify the Hero’s Wish requirements are met. If all criteria are met, a member of the Hero's Wish will be assigned to facilitate wish fulfillment.

The Vet Tix Hero’s Wish team and other volunteers explore possible ways to make the Hero’s Wish come true for our veteran. Most Hero’s Wishes  are funded on a case by case basis by posting on our website with a donate button, and by the Hero’s Wish team hard at work behind the scenes making phone calls, sending faxes and emails to make the Hero’s Wish a reality.

Hope for the Warriors
A Warrior’s Wish® supports the long-term goal of hope beyond recovery through financial grants awarded to severely injured service members, veterans, their families and families of the fallen. Whether it is adaptive equipment, tools for a hobby or business, or family bonding experiences, A Warrior’s Wish collaborates with the community to make Wishes come true for our warriors and their families.

For more than a decade, Hope For The Warriors has been dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope for veterans, service members and military families through a variety of programs including its first one, A Warrior’s Wish. A Warrior’s Wish honors the goals and desires of severely wounded service members, veterans, and their families. Wishes fulfill a desire for a better quality of life or support a quest for life-gratifying endeavors for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

Modest Needs
At Modest Needs, we empower members of the general public to make small, emergency grants to low-income workers who are at risk of slipping into poverty.

We have elected to undertake this mission because we recognize that a significant gap exists in the social service “safety nets” of developed nations like the United States.

This gap leaves low income but generally self-sufficient individuals and families without access to small amounts of one-time, emergency assistance in favor of providing significant amounts of long-term aid to these same individuals and families once they’ve fallen into the cycle of poverty.

Through the use of online crowdfunding technology, Modest Needs Foundation promotes the idea that any individual can make a huge impact in a neighbor’s life by giving as little as $10 or $15 at a time.

On Behalf (New York, New England)
Founded by 4 US Army veterans in 2005, OnBehalf.org is a nonprofit organization that aims to raise both funds and services for injured Iraq and Afghanistan veterans from New York and New England. With an all-volunteer team and few administrative costs, over 90% of your contribution ends up supporting our military men and women.

Operation Once in a Lifetime
Operation Once in a Lifetime’s mission is to make the dreams of soldiers and their families come true by providing free financial and moral support.

Operation Once in a Lifetime was created by a soldier to help other soldiers; a soldier knows what a soldier needs and a soldier knows what a soldier does not need. A soldier does not need to worry about providing beds for his kids, worrying if his electricity will still be on when he goes home or if his house will be foreclosed on when serving his/her country. A soldier needs a program that will provide free financial assistance regardless of his rank, race, branch of service, physical condition or his deployment status. A soldier needs a program that can help make a life altering contribution when he is in his/her greatest need; Operation Once in a Lifetime is that program.

Operation Warrior Wishes
Operation Warrior Wishes’ mission is to honor heroes, keep legacies alive and provide once in a lifetime experiences to warriors from the Battlefields to the Ballfields

Wish For Our Heroes
The Phoenix Group launched a non-profit foundation in November of 2009 that grants wishes for active duty Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and their families. The Foundation strives to relieve the burdens of family separation, re-integration for deployed soldiers, hardship circumstances, and other means of assistance not covered by existing military charities. The Foundation is driven by an interactive website allowing anyone to request a wish for active duty members of our Armed Forces. The website allows ‘wish granters’ to view wishes and contribute donations.

Free fundraising for the people & causes you care about.
