Reasons to give to HFOT this holiday season

Categories: Blog, Fundraising, Home, Non-Profit

The holiday giving season is in full swing and we recognize there are thousands of nonprofits competing for your year-end contribution. We understand it can be challenging to pick the charity most worthy of your support. To make it easier for you, here are a few reasons why Homes For Our Troops is an excellent choice:

We are a top-rated military charity: Since our inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar has gone directly toward our programs. Charity Watch has awarded HFOT an A rating and has included us on its list of Top-Rated Military & Veterans Charities. Additionally, HFOT is a platinum-level Guidestar participant, demonstrating its commitment to transparency, meets all 20 criteria of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, and has a 4 Star rating with Charity Navigator.

The Veterans choose where they want to live: Whether it be their hometown or an area with a large support network, we find each Veteran the perfect location that meets their individual needs.

We stay with the Veterans after they receive the home: Our relationship with the Veterans does not end when we hand over the keys to their new home. We remain in contact with each Veteran post-delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.

We provide pro-bono financial planning: We know there are many costs associated with homeownership, so we set each Veteran up with a pro bono financial planner for three years to help them plan and save for the future.

Giving will make you feel good: Many of our home recipients go on to do some remarkable things because of the freedom and independence they regain from our homes. Read some of their amazing stories here.
