Donation FAQs

  1. What percentage of my donation goes directly to Wounded Warriors?

    We continuously strive to keep administrative and fundraising costs associated with the operation of WWP as low as possible. Based on our fiscal year 2012 audited financial statements ending September 30, 2012, 81.6 percent of total expenditures went to provide services and programs for our Wounded Warriors and their families. We're proud to far exceed the Better Business Bureau's minimum standard of $0.65 for every dollar. We're consistently working to improve our efficiency and better serve warriors. If you're still curious, take a look at our financials.


  2. I'd like to sign up for a monthly gift, how do I do this?

    WWP's monthly giving program is called Advance Guard. This program provides WWP with a reliable, low-cost source of long-term income for WWP programs and services. Simply fill out our online donation form or download a copy and mail it in today.


  3. Can I make donations to a particular veteran or their family?

    Unfortunately, WWP cannot direct funds to a geographic location or specific individual.
