We are the American Military Veterans Foundation. As we move forward with a new name, our mission remains the same: to ease the burdens of financial hardship, mental distress, and physical ailment for all veterans and their families, helping them transition back to a productive and meaningful life.
Founded as “Wounded Warriors Anglers of America, Inc.” in 2010, we have proudly built a history and a reputation for placing our veterans first.
In 2012, we reorganized, and set into motion a path toward our current program structure and mission to include membership. Since then, the organization has slowly and thoughtfully expanded to new regions, and development of needed programs and services.
The 2017 name change to “American Military Veterans Foundation” more accurately distinguishes our brand to reflect our mission, identity and growing organization. It also further removed brand confusion with unaffiliated non-profits.
This is a pivotal time in our organization’s history. We’ve experienced tremendous growth, yet struggled with name and organization confusion, having to clarify who we were, what we did, and where we operated. Now, instead of starting conversations with ‘who we are not,’ we can start with the number of veterans and family members we help every day.
Our name may have changed, but our promise to put all our veterans first, along with keeping our operating costs down. The more we do as an organization, the more funds are available to help our veterans.
