Wounded Warrior Project provides all programs and services at zero cost to the warriors, family members, and caregivers we serve.
To provide those free programs and services, we rely on the incredible generosity of our donors, who we reach through a variety of fundraising channels. Warriors never pay a penny for our programs – because they paid their dues on the battlefield. Every $1 invested in fundraising in FY 2018 generated approximately $4 to support warriors, families, and caregivers. We make this investment to reach more veterans around the country.
The IRS Form 990 is referred to more frequently by donors, other charitable groups, charity watch groups, and the public. As always, our audited financials are available on our website.
