Roughly 22 veterans die from suicide every day. What happens to their loved ones that are left behind, specifically speaking, their children? That is where Combat For Compassion comes in to help. We set up trust funds for each child and add to annually as well as set up shopping spree's for Christmas and back to school. We do not forget the birthdays either! We strive to do things the lost parent would do.
Membership dues are $30.00 annually. We meet once a month to go over logistics, financials, discuss the children, and future fundraising events. All members are welcome come to the meeting, but are not required to attend.
how much does it cost to become a member for combat for compassion?
We try for 3-5 events per year, but this number varies. Please head to our Events page to see future events.
How many fundraising events per year does combat for compassion do?
When we take a new child, a mutual fund is set up in each of their names. Once a donation is received that money is divided between those accounts and deposited to them to be used for future needs, such as college, emergencies, trauma counseling, and youth camps if chosen to do so.
Where does my money go after making a donation?
Combat for Compassion is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3). What this means is 100% of the donations and money raised goes to the children left behind after a Veteran parents suicide.
