Event:  VOTR Veterans Awareness Breakfast and Stand Down

Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Veterans On the Rise!

Donate to the #GivingTuesday fundraising activity by supporting our Keeping Veterans Rising Campaign


Dear Friend of Veterans On the Rise,

This year, on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, we are celebrating #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving – when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together celebrate giving and Veterans on the Rise along with many other nonprofit organizations around the country have supported the movement in their area. Many people and companies have endorsed #GivingTuesday.

Leading in to Giving Tuesday Veterans On the Rise has hosted events to celebrate Veterans Day and the Marine Corps, Navy, Army, and Air Force Birthdays.  We are culminating the Giving Tuesday Campaign with a Veterans Day Breakfast and Stand Down event at our headquarters which is located at 5002 Sheriff Road NE Washington, DC where we will be joined by veteran employers and other veteran service organizations.

As a #GivingTuesday partner from Washington, DC, we would like to respectfully request that you or your company donate to Veterans On the Rise a 501(c)3 that provides housing and holistic services to homeless veterans and veteran families.   The many ways to donate to Veterans On the Rise are listed below:
