COVID-19 Veteran Relief Grant

The American-Made Heroes Foundation Fund is providing grants of up to $5,000 to support nonprofit community organizations in the United States that provide services to US military veterans impacted by COVID-19.

Evan Williams recognizes that the COVID-19 emergency has critically impacted many nonprofit organizations, as well as the veterans who you serve. We want to help you continue to serve or expand services to US military veterans in this time of crisis.

Applications will be accepted and responded to on a continuing basis through June 24, 2020.


  • 501(c)(3) organizations providing services to US military veterans.
  • The American-Made Heroes Foundation supports locally-focused initiatives. The applicant organization should either be a local chapter of a national nonprofit organization or a grassroots, community-based and/or veteran-led nonprofit.
  • Your program funding for existing services to veterans has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis or you are developing new initiatives to serve US military veterans in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

If your organization meets these criteria and your program does not serve people under the age of 21 and does not center on addiction/recovery services, you are invited to apply for the COVID-19 Veteran Relief Grant from the American-Made Heroes Foundation Fund to support your organization’s veteran-focused project or programs. Each organization may submit only one application for funding for this grant.

All 501(c)(3) organizations serving US military veterans which meet the eligibility criteria are invited to apply. If your organization is founded by or is led by a US military veteran, please complete the “Veteran Information” section of the application.
