History

A Nonprofit Organization
The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) National Service Foundation is a tax-exempt organization, and all contributions made to it are tax deductible.

The Foundation is a nonprofit organization incorporated in the District of Columbia. It is exempt from tax under Title 26 U.S.C., Section 501(c)(4). Contributions to the Foundation are deductible pursuant to 26 U.S.C., Section 170(c).
Incorporated in 1931, the DAV National Service Foundation was established to assist in raising funds for the service initiatives of the DAV National Organization. The Foundation initially served to ensure that the DAV’s National Service Program and other service initiatives would always be available for veterans of every era of conflict. Over the years, the Foundation’s role has expanded and adapted to reflect the everchanging needs of veterans.

Since initiation, the Foundation has continued its identity as a separate nonprofit organization, maintaining its primary focus on direct services for veterans who come home from military service sick or injured. In this way, it has become a strong partner of the DAV in our mission to empower veterans to lead high quality lives with respect and dignity.
