The Veterans’ Foundation is proud to announce that it gave £915,000 in grants last month.
Following the latest meeting of the VF trustees, 40 UK-based military charities and organisations received crucial funding that will directly help British veterans in need.
The Veterans’ Foundation has now awarded £7.1M in grants to more than 260 military charities and not-for-profit organisations since inception in 2016.
All of this has been made possible thanks to both players of the national Veterans’ Lottery and those who have directly donated to the VF.
“Thank you for your support,” said David Shaw, CEO and founder of the Veterans’ Foundation.
“We have now given away £7.1m since inception and we predict giving away grants amounting to £4.5m in the next 12 months.
“These grants will make a huge difference to the charities and charitable organisations that receive grants from the Veterans’ Foundation, but more importantly, they will help those people who deserve and need your support.”
Among those charities and organisations to receive cash in the latest round of grant awards included PTSD Resolution, Supporting Wounded Veterans, Beyond the Battlefield, Stand Easy, Sporting Force, Rock 2 Recovery, Walking with the Wounded, Scotty’s Little Soldiers and Waterloo Uncovered.
