America benefits from the strength, courage, and talent that compelled our veterans to serve. Now, more than ever, meeting the needs of veterans and their families is imperative. The Veterans Fund of the Community Foundation exists to enhance the lives of Brevard County veterans and their families.
The goals of the fund are to:
- Support the strengths and needs of veterans and their families in Brevard County, with a priority focus on those who are isolated, underserved, or otherwise marginalized;
- Foster education about veteran issues, and create dialogue between veterans and the general community; and
- Provide support for nonprofit organizations serving the veteran community.
The Veterans Fund is a permanently endowed fund established through a generous gift in December of 2020 by the Transitioning Patriots of Brevard, formally known as Sentinels of Freedom Space Coast.
The annual distribution may be allocated through the competitive grant program of the Community Foundation or distributed separately, depending on critical needs that may arise in Brevard’s veteran community.
“A great debt of gratitude is owed to the founding members of Transitioning Patriots of Brevard for the work they have accomplished over the years. We are humbled that they chose to gift their assets to the Community Foundation. By doing so, we will be able to carry on their mission of supporting veterans and their families in Brevard through the endowed Veterans Fund.”
