Intrepid Fallen Heroes — https://www.fallenheroesfund.org/Donate.aspx
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is helping military personnel suffering the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions by building a series of facilities, called “Intrepid Spirit” centers, in which these injuries can be diagnosed and treated. Hundreds of thousands of military personnel have been diagnosed with TBI or PH conditions and the Intrepid Spirit centers provide the best possible care for these heroes in uniform.
Stack-up — https://stack-up.org/donate/
We assemble care packages filled with video gaming and nerd goodness, delivered to veterans deployed to combat zones, humanitarian missions, recovering in military hospitals, or even to bases stateside in support of any number of family readiness missions. We strive to change a deployed service members experience while they are deployed: instead of focusing on how many days they have left in theater, we want them thinking about setting up an upcoming Madden or Call of Duty tournament with their battle buddies. And it’s not just about having fun: scientific studies show video gaming has been tied to helping veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, even help with pain relief!
Fisher House — https://www.fisherhouse.org/
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $320 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
