America's Fund, a charitable program operated by the Semper Fi Fund, announces a $1 million donation matching campaign to run over the next year, made possible by the incredible generosity of a family who prefers to remain anonymous. Donations up to $1 million pledged to America's Fund will be matched by this family, helping America's Fund further their mission of providing financial assistance to injured U.S. service members and their families.
America's Fund is dedicated to alleviating the stress placed on our wounded service members from all branches of service as they return home from duty. Currently, the Fund focuses on the distribution of support grants to families in need, which allow them to remain by the bedside of their injured loved ones throughout recovery. These grants cover the expenses which may prevent family members from visiting their loved ones at military hospitals including travel costs, lodging, and even missed wages.
"We are so grateful to receive this family's incredible gift," said Karen Guenther, America's Fund Founder and CEO. "Their generosity will touch the lives of so many other families in their time of need, providing invaluable support on their road to recovery."
The opportunity provided by this family, in memory of their brother as well as all who serve, gives America's Fund the capital needed to expand their programming beyond financial assistance. All donations received through AmericasFund.org or as checks sent by mail to support wounded veterans will be automatically matched through March 2014.
