Operation G.I. Jane has yielded $6,400 in raffle proceeds and donations. It is obvious the under served veterans are important to The My GI Foundation, Loveland High School and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. We collected $2,000 in prizes and CA$H for the raffle. This pool got everyone excited and those who  brought home $100, $50, or $25 dollars were literally in the money. Toss in corporate gifts and over fifty $25 gift cards and you have yourself a raffle. Coupled with Operation Winter Weather and over $13,590 in cash and in-kind donations were awarded this school year.

 

My GI Mission Statement

The purpose of my foundation is to provide veterans with compassionate personal assistance for veteran-related issues in every day areas of their lives, both financially and personally. Their needs become our needs.

 

Welcome to my American Veteran's Foundation known as The My GI Foundation. After raising tens of thousands of dollars for military charities since 2014, I have become a fiscal sponsor of the 501 (C)(3) Wounded Warriors Family Support team and will be mentored by its founder, Colonel John D. Folsom. I will have more personal time and get to spend time with my vets. To all my vets and their families who have inspired me, THANK  YOU!  

Any and all donations to The My GI Foundation are always appreciated and liquidated just as fast. We worked closely with two veteran families in fiscal crisis and 2017 has been expensive, but worth every penny. 100% of all donations go back to the veteran community. We are in need of both personal and corporate donations. The My GI Foundation is strictly a volunteer foundation. We are 100% vested and we don't keep track of mileage or pay ourselves one penny. Operation Winter Weather and Operation G.J. Jane have raised a tremendous amount of money and awareness for the Cincinnati VA Medical Center  and VA Women's Center, but those funds are strictly for our two benefactors.  

 

Most of the veterans who benefit financially or otherwise from the My GI Foundation prefer to keep our philanthropic business private and such a request is always honored. They have wonderful stories you would appreciate, but their privacy needs are our needs. 2017 was an exceptional year for giving, but 2018 has been extraordinary. I'll find a way to improve when 2019 rolls around.
