America’s Fund is a pilot program created to direct urgently needed resources and financial support to injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. This program is administered by the Semper Fi Fund, an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit with an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy and a 4-star (highest possible) rating from Charity Navigator. In just eight years, the Semper Fi Fund has provided more than $62 million in support.
As injured heroes from different branches of service are treated side by side at our nation’s military hospitals, requests for assistance to all branches have continued to grow. We are excited to begin fulfilling those requests today!
Today, our first priority is providing family support grants. These enable families to spend time at loved ones’ hospital bedsides, free from the financial pressures of travel, temporary lodging and lost wages.
With your support, we plan to quickly expand our range of services to include assistance for specialized and adaptive equipment, adaptive housing, adaptive transportation, education and career transition, therapeutic arts, and PTSD and TBI support. Additionally, we want to continue building programs that have proven beneficial to rehabilitation and recovery, such as team-based athletics and the Tim and Sandy Day Canine Companions Program.
