an Opportunity to ‘Do Good Twice’

Since its founding in 2007, WAA has partnered with hundreds of like-minded charities, community programs, and civic groups throughout the country to remember and honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military all year long.

The annual Giving in July campaign celebrates these groups and highlights the opportunity to ‘do good twice’ through the sponsorship of veterans’ wreaths through the organization’s $5 pay back Group Sponsorship Program.

Through the program, every $17 wreath sponsorship gives back $5 for the group to use for their own mission, which includes programs helping veterans, military families, youth and more, in communities across the country. Through this national program, WAA has given back more than $20 million in local contributions over the last 15 years.

I have long said, it would be disingenuous for us as an organization whose mission is to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom, if we do not support other like-minded programs doing just that in their communities year round.”

- Wreaths Across America Executive Director Karen Worcester

Like the well-known marketing idea Christmas in July, supporting our charity during the summer months provides us the opportunity to encourage others to get involved early with the WAA mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – and support our nation’s veterans and military families in the communities they live throughout the year right now when they need it most.

Here's how it works:

  • Wreaths Across America™ wreath sponsorships are $17 per wreath.
  • Funds are collected by each participating group.
  • $5 of each $17 will be returned to the registered sponsorship group on a 30-day reimbursement cycle.

After you complete our group registration form and your group has been processed you will receive a welcome email from Wreaths Across America HQ providing you with your Group ID number and important information about fundraising for WAA.
