URGENT Need For Donations - Please Support Our Veterans Today
Please reach out to us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
When we started the organization, we funded the endeavor ourselves. We have had several gracious donors help us out but it is not nearly enough. As of January 30, 2024, we are operating at a loss. For us to continue the mission we need you to share our request for funding with friends, relatives, and businesses.
Recognizing the financial burdens associated with cremation services and the rising trend of cremations, Free Urns for Vets stands as a bridge between veterans and the end-of-life services they deserve.
No current or former service member should be denied an honorable farewell
due to financial constraints or lack of immediate family.
We are a non-profit organization registered with the Alabama Secretary of State. We are managed by a Board of Directors and our 501(c)(3) status is pending.
Absolutely not. No strings. No cost to them. Our organization was started and continues to operate because veterans have been fighting for our rights for more than 200 years now. They gave freely so we can be free. Providing a dignified urn at no cost to the family is the least we can do.
We pay for shipping in the United States and its territories.
Sure, just provide us a copy of the obituary announcement that states his/her military service or a letter/email from a funeral home or crematorium.
Making a donation is simple. Just click on the "donate now" button on the first page and you can make a secure online donation using your debit or credit card. If you would rather send a check or make a larger donation through an ACH transfer, send us a message and we'll tell you how.
Yes. But at this time, our 501(c)(3) status is still pending. As soon as that is complete, we will gladly let you know. If you would like a receipt (other than the one provided online), we'll be glad to mail one.
We are actively recruiting volunteers to serve on various boards such as our public relations board and our fundraising board. If you would rather help out behind the scenes, you can share our website with your friends, family, and your employers. Ask them to get involved whether it's through a donation or a fundraiser.
Supporting Free Urns for Vets is as simple as a click of a button.
We've set up a secure donation process through PayPal to ensure your contribution process is safe, quick, and straightforward. Simply click on the 'Donate' button, and you'll be guided through the steps to make your donation.
Your generous contribution, no matter how small, helps us honor more of our nation's heroes with the dignified farewell they deserve. Your donations are tax-deductible as we are an IRS 501(c)(3) Corporation. Your support truly makes a difference.
