Why Your Donation Matters
A CAUSE WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT
When you support Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), you’re supporting an organization whose broad appeal reaches across demographic, geographic, and political boundaries. We’re an apolitical organization by design. For us, it’s not about the war; it’s about the warrior.
Who We Serve
Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wounds or injuries. For every US soldier killed in World Wars I and II, there were 1.7 soldiers wounded. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, for every US soldier killed, seven are wounded.
WWP continuously strives to keep administrative and fundraising costs associated with operation as low as possible. Based on WWP’s fiscal year 2011 audited financial statements ending September 30, 2011, 82.8 percent of total expenditures went to provide services and programs for our Wounded Warriors and their families.

This prestigious accreditation is only given to those nonprofit organizations that meet the 20 rigorous “Standards of Charity Accountability” related to how they govern their organization, the ways they spend their money, the truthfulness of their representations, and their willingness to disclose basic information to the public.
