Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org), a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, announces the launch of the “Honor Wall” on its website.
The DVNF Honor Wall , launched last week, is a way for donors support DVNF and also recognize a loved one or special veteran in their life. When donors choose to give on the DVNF website, they are given the opportunity to make their gift an "in honor or in memory of" gift.
When giving in honor or memory of a special veteran family member or loved one who served, they can fill in information about that person’s military service such as their rank, awards, and years of service. This information is then added to the DVNF Honor Wall.
The idea of the Honor Wall originated with DVNF's CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.), who wanted donors to feel compelled to give with added purpose.
“Supporting veterans in the present by honoring a veteran’s past is exactly what the Honor Wall is about,” VanFonda said. “Donors are often drawn to DVNF simply because of our mission. But they also want to have their loved ones’ service recognized as well, and now they have that opportunity.”
The Honor Wall is live at http://www.dvnf.org, and DVNF is encouraging anyone to pay respects to a veteran in their life in this simple, but effective way.
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom.
We achieve this mission by:
- Providing personalized counseling to assist veterans in navigating the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service.
- Offering direct financial support to veterans and other veteran organizations to address the issues that align with the DVNF mission.
- Providing supplemental assistance through the Health & Comfort program and Empowerment Webinars.
- Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community.
