The DAV National Service Foundation develops financial resources for the assistance, aid, maintenance, care, support and rehabilitation of sick and injured veterans and their dependents, either directly or by contributions to the service programs of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) national organization or its departments and chapters.

To carry out this responsibility, the DAV National Service Foundation supports DAV’s daily work to meet the most significant and immediate needs of veterans, which includes providing free, professional assistance with disability claims and benefits; no-cost transportation to and from medical appointments; and other vital services imperative to the quality of life of veterans and their families.
