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

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
* 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
