These are some of the 2200 injured veterans who have received over $3.2 million worth of equipment for self-employment from your donations to Work Vessels for Vets. They join us in saying, THANK YOU!

Work Vessels for Vets matches a veteran's needs with corporate and individual donors. As a 501 (c)(3) public charitable organization, WVFV maximizes gifts to qualified returning veterans by providing start-up funding, farm land, and agricultural opportunities, tools, equipment, vehicles, electronics, and products. Veteran recipients agree to "Pay it Forward" by hiring fellow vets in their growing businesses, and assisting their neighborhoods and communities.

Work Vessels for Vets partners with other national veteran organizations and assists veteran rehabilitation networks by sending boats, cars, vans, and sports equipment as they fulfill their missions for our injured returning combat veterans.
