Welcome to my American Veteran's Foundation known as The My GI Foundation. After five years of raising tens of thousands of dollars for veterans, their families, and the veteran community, I have become a 501 (c)(3).  My GI was fortunate to be a fiscal sponsorship of the Association of the United States Army and Wounded Warriors Family Support prior to becoming our own 501 (c)(3). The financial help and mentoring has allowed My GI to flourish into a well-known organization veterans can trust and seek help from in the Cincinnati area. I started the My GI foundation when I was fourteen and now I am twenty and serving the Army on a National AROTC Scholarship and the Corps of Cadets at the Citadel. To all my vets and their families who have inspired me, THANK YOU!  


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.

Any and all donations to The My GI Foundation are always appreciated and liquidated just as fast. We work closely with veterans and their families in fiscal crisis, within the Cincinnati veteran community on necessary and rewarding projects, and continue to improve our veteran services each day by working with our successful corporate partners. 100% of all donations go back to the veteran community. Currently, we are in need of both personal and corporate donations for more projects and requests than we can fund in 2019. The My GI Foundation is strictly a volunteer foundation. We are 100% vested and our four volunteers do not receive financial compensation. One of our best new partnerships is with Loveland High School. Since 2017, we have worked closely with Loveland High School and we have fund-raised $21,593 in three events to benefit the VA Hospital. Please let us know how we can serve you!


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 and 2018 has been extraordinary. Now that 2019 has rolled around, we are flooded with viable requests.

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
