Pennies for Patriots

Pennies for Patriots, Inc. was formed in January of 2005 for the expressed purpose of soliciting tax deductible donations from the public, business, charitable foundations and governmental agencies. The purpose of the solicitation is to form a pool of funds that would be used for three purposes:

  • To provide financial awards to injured U.S. soldiers discharged from service in Iraq or Afghanistan.
  • To provide employment and educational support to these veterans
  • To provide funds for the successful operation of the charity.


It is the vision of Pennies for Patriots leadership that returning veterans from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan receive financial, employment and educational assistance while recovering from injuries sustained in battle.


It is the mission of the Pennies for Patriots charitable organization to provide financial awards, employment opportunity and educational support on a case-by-case basis to qualifying injured service men and women who have received a Purple Heart medal for injuries sustained in meritorious service during wartime in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war.
