Purposes and Principles

The primary purpose of the Foundation for American Veterans shall be to operate as a veterans organization to promote the social welfare of the community, assist disabled and needy veterans, and members of the U. S. Armed Forces, their dependents, widows, widowers, and orphans of deceased veterans; provide entertainment, care and assistance to hospitalized veterans or members of the U. S. Armed Forces, carry out programs to perpetuate the memory of deceased veterans and members of the Armed Forces, and comfort their survivors, conduct programs for religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes, sponsor or participate in activities of a patriotic nature, provide insurance benefits for the members of dependents thereof or both, and provide social and recreational activities for members.

The Foundation will maintain a policy of openness to all without regard to race, creed, sex, religion, economic status, or national origin. It will also strive to conduct its affairs in good faith and according to accepted corporate practices.

The Foundation is a non-stock, nonprofit organization which will engage in any lawful act or activity for which nonprofit organizations may be organized under the District of Columbia Nonprofit Corporation Act. It is organized and operated exclusively for such purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (19) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (or the corresponding provisions of any future United States Internal Revenue Law). The organization is organized and operated exclusively for public charitable uses and purposes as shall at this time qualify as exempt from taxation under Section 501 (c) (19) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Foundation for American Veterans License to Solicit Charitable Contributions within the State of Michigan, pursuant to the provisions of 1975 PA 169, whose license number is MICS 11891. We recently began raising funds in Illinois and will continue to branch out to every state.

The FAV is a nonprofit tax-exempt organization dedicated to helping all veterans from all walks of life. Our VA hospitals across the country are urgently in need of supplies and equipment which are not funded by the Federal Government. The FAV's future goals consist of establishing a veterans homeless shelter in the Detroit area, maintain our continued support of VA Hospitals, provide continued assistance for veterans through our World Wide Web (WWW) Page, provide financial assistance to other veterans causes such as stand downs and shelters, provide medical and home care assistance to disabled veterans, and many other vital programs.

Our web page offers a "Where Are You Now" database which allows vets to enter specific personal data about themselves and also has a unique search tool which allows someone to find someone with such things as nicknames, battles, etc. The "Vets Hiring Vets" program is a complete job assistance database for veteran business owners looking for employees as well as veterans looking for employment. These are only two of the programs and we hope to continue to improve the page as time goes on.

The following is a list of some of the things the FAV has accomplished recently:

* Provided financial assistance to provide specialized television sets to a complete wing of the new VA Hospital located in the downtown Detroit area. We also provide assistance to other VA programs and equipment needs of the hospital on a continuing basis.

* Provided funds to the Ann Arbor VA Hospital to purchase a pulse oximeter which regulates the amount of oxygen in a patients blood, vital to respiratory therapy.

* Provided funds to the Iron Mountain VA Hospital to purchase specialized equipment to help increase circulation in bed ridden patients, thereby decreasing skin breakdown.

* Provided funds to the Saginaw VA Hospital to purchase supplies for the patio/nature trail fund, enabling patients to enjoy the hospital grounds alone or with friends and relatives.

* We are currently assisting the Detroit VA Hospital in arranging free cable pay-per-view service to the patients. The amount of financial assistance we are giving them is minimal to the $30,000 the local cable company wanted to charge them.

As you can see, the FAV has a purpose and a goal and we need your help. Please view and print a copy of our Contribution form and pass along our web site address to others. http://www.fav.org/
