WE ARE

NATION OF PATRIOTSTM

OUR

HISTORY

Nation of PatriotsTM was formed in 2008 and achieved our exempt status in early 2009. We launched the very first Patriot TourTM in 2009. Our humble start has led to a huge following across the country and we continue to work on this upward growth. Our focus has been and always will be this: to provide financial support to those who have served in our Armed Forces and their families. These individuals have volunteered their lives in the preservation, protection and future of The United States and all of its citizens. For this we are grateful.

ABOUT THE

NATION OF PATRIOTS

Nation of PatriotsTM is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization. We work on a national level to promote the awareness of and financially support the physical, emotional, and economic misfortune that our wounded veterans and their families are living with today and everyday.

We work to unite Americans beneath the banner or Flag and behind the men and women serving in the Armed Forces. We raise money through our national network and distribute it directly to the families we strive to support. The families are selected for us mostly through the VA Hospital network.

We are a 100% volunteer nonprofit. We give 100% of all donations received directly to the veterans we strive to help. We work with VA facilities and many other veteran organizations to help us locate and select the veteran families based on specific criteria.

MEET

THE TEAM

Our board of directors and executive committee are comprised of a handful of hard working, dedicated and patriotic folks. Each provides their time on a 100% volunteer basis while balancing the responsibilities and stress of everyday life with their commitment to the growth and success of the Nation of PatriotsTM. For their service to our nation we believe it is our civic duty to make sure that any veteran that needs help, damn sure gets it. We built this organization to be that catalyst between veterans in need and freedom-loving Americans.
