Donation FAQs

100% of your donation supports wounded warriors. 71% pays for programs, and the balance pays to support those programs.

We are pleased to report over $200 million went directly to programs for wounded warriors as reported in our FY 2019 IRS Form 990.

More than 168,000 warriors, family members and caregivers were registered with Wounded Warrior Project on September 30, 2019. The need is great and growing. Every month in 2019, more than 1,500 warriors and family members registered with Wounded Warrior Project to receive our free programs and services.  

Our free services in mental health, career counseling, long-term rehabilitative care, and policy advocacy, improve the lives of millions of warriors and their families.

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.

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

Read through our information on planned giving and then contact us at 877.832.6997. We will provide you with additional information you need to consider when making this decision.

WWP does not currently accept these types of donations. The donation of such items raises significant practical and legal concerns, depending upon the circumstances. Please contact our office directly via plannedgiving@woundedwarriorproject.org and we can assess the situation on an individual basis.

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple a donation's value. Even more, your company may also match gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members. Each gift will help foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.

For full details on company matching gifts or to search for your company, please visit our Company Matching Gifts page.

Please visit our Gift In-Kind Donations page for full information on what is accepted.
