Disabled Veterans Charities Puts Donations into the Right Hands

1888PressRelease - Disabled Veterans Charities Carefully Vets Organizations Before Making Grants.

REDLANDS, Calif. - Last year, Americans gave 7.71 billion to charity, according to Giving USA. But how do donors know if they are supporting organizations where their dollars will count? With Disabled Veterans Charities, supporters can be confident their donations will make a difference because of the vetting process it follows before granting funds.

Disabled Veterans Charities is a 501(C)(3) orgnization that funds local organizations who support Southern California at-risk veterans and their families by providing access to the services, resources and support needed to face the challenges of homelessness and improve their lifes. Before awarding grants, Disabled Veterans Charities vets each organization through a detailed process to ensure they meet specific criteria for giving.

Not only does Disabled Veterans Charities review each nonprofit’s history, but it also looks at the outcomes of their efforts and impact on those they set out to help. Among the factors it considers before deciding a charity are:

• Who else funds them and whether there are broad sources of support over time
• How they are managed, if there is proper oversight and their pledges to transparency
• Where the dollars go – we even talk to beneficiaries to see what they have to say

“We know donors have seemingly limitless opportunities today to give to charitable causes so we want to make sure those who support Disabled Veterans Charities know that their dollars are going to a reputable organization who will use the funds to do good – and not just cover administrative costs,” said Disabled Veterans Charities General Manager Jo Anne Rodriguez. “Here, the donations are earmarked specifically for local Southern California organizations whose mission is to help at-risk veterans and their families, with an emphasis on eliminating homelessness.”

Pledges to Disabled Veterans Charities go to area programs that help those who need it most through counseling, housing, career assistance, and support for their widows and dependents, such as U.S. Veterans Initiatives and Project Healing Waters.
