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!  

Great summer! Met a lot of interesting vets and got to be involved with some unprecedented aid for my vets and contribute to events like the 37th Annual Veterans Wheelchair Games. Since summer, I have been asked to refurbish a Colored Civil War Cemetery and I am also starting a financial initiative for the 38th Annual Veterans Wheelchair games in Orlando. Searching for partners, but I need to do a better job of locating donors, and selling them on the mission of The My GI Foundation.


Any and all donations are appreciated. 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. The My GI Foundation is strictly a volunteer foundation.


All contributions are completely tax deductible and you'll receive a statement at the appropriate time.

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 has been an exceptional year for giving.

Thank You Senator
