Foundation Fund

Supporting Nonprofits that Service Veterans

special top special top

Our mission is to support America’s military veterans by funding nonprofit
organizations that serve the veteran community.

Our Purpose

The American-Made Heroes Foundation Fund was established to show Evan Williams’ pride in being American-made and owned, and to give back to those who served. Our purpose is: to provide a platform for sharing inspiring veteran stories; to raise public awareness for causes impacting the veteran community; and to support nonprofit organizations that help veterans and their families through a specialized grant program.

Organizations we support

From training service dogs to fighting homelessness, here are some of the nonprofits we’ve supported.

  • Semper K9 (2018) - PTSD / Service Animals
  • Veterans Empowering Veterans (2019) - Healthcare & Homelessness
  • The Catalyst (2020) - Education & Employment

Who is Eligible

Anyone over the age of 21 who represents a nonprofit organization (Founder, Board member, etc.) may apply for a grant through the American-Made Heroes Foundation Fund. In order to be considered, the organization must be registered as a 501(c)(3) and must provide some or all of their services to the U.S. military veteran community.

Currently, we are accepting applications for COVID-19 Veteran Relief Grants. The funds are earmarked for organizations who are serving veterans directly impacted by COVID-19. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis from April 20 - June 24, 2020. Eligible submissions will be evaluated for a one-time grant of up to $5,000.

If your organization meets these criteria, we invite you to submit an application today.
