We Stand With the Family after a Veteran Suicide

The only thing worse than veteran suicide is being a family member left behind.

Thirteen of the 20 suicides a day are veterans.

That’s 13 funerals a day most veteran families can’t afford.

Help us make it right.

Our Mission: Ease the veteran family’s funeral costs after a soldier suicide.

Military families serve – just like the soldier – by constantly moving, deployment separation, and the risk. This final, sad sacrifice drives us to raise awareness and offer financial aid to those left behind. Most veterans are not getting VA benefits.* Financially and emotionally distressed, now their families are, too. Please help.

  • Average cost to fly the body home: $11,000.
  • Average funeral costs: $15,000

Mythbuster: Most veteran funerals are paid for by the family, not the VA.

a big message.

Twenty Suicides Every Day *

Active duty soldier suicides are covered by government-issued life insurance policy up to $400,000.**  Most older vets aren’t as prepared. Neither are the families.

Despite their good intentions, the Veterans Administration support and services fall short. Their families are left with broken hearts and huge financial burdens that aren’t of their making.**** Your donation is their silver lining. Please give today. 

The average funeral costs $15,000. Veterans Administration death benefits range from $600 – $2,000. Unfortunately, most veterans who commit soldier suicides have fallen through the cracks so that even these minimal benefits aren’t available to them.

With your help, we will fill that gap.

We are a new kind of nonprofit, one built for maximum giving.

We are 100% digital, with zero overhead, so your gift goes a long way to support the families directly.

Your Purchase or Donation Provides these Services:

Funeral Costs

Most veteran suicides are caused by influences far from the battlefield of service. Most were living in hard times and these costs are overwhelming to their survivors. They often have unfinished business that needs taken care of.

Memorial Page

Having a place to memorialize their family members is sometimes the best comfort we can give. Maybe it helps with the grieving process and allows some light to shine in their time of darkness. We’d like that very much.

Awareness

We are currently spending $6,ooo/month in Google ads to get suicide related information into the hands of those in need. The survivors need our help and we want people to be aware of them.

Networking

We are building a national database of the soldiers and their families impacted by soldier suicide. By connecting the families and survivors, we can help in ways that money, time and awareness just can’t.
