The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes was established in 2004 to provide severely wounded veterans of the global war on terror, and their families, with emergency financial assistance and other support services to help them recover from their injuries and rebuild their lives.
The Coalition is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, non-partisan organization. All funds needed to develop and manage programs that advance its mission come from contributions to the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes by individual citizens, corporate donors and foundations.
Since inception the Coalition has distributed thousands of Emergency Financial Aid payments, grants, and holiday gift checks to wounded troops and their families to help them avoid evictions, car repossessions, utility cut-offs, and empty refrigerators and food shelves, and brightened special occasions such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas with holiday meals and gifts.
In addition, the Coalition maintained its public awareness campaigns throughout the year concerning the ongoing needs of wounded veterans, and to encourage individual citizens to contact their elected representatives to seek better care from our government for those who have given so much for us.
