Wounded Warrior Project

I believe in the Wounded Warrior Project.  I support the Project with a monthly donation.  They do good work and focus attention on the many problems of our wounded Veterans.  If you search the internet, you can find articles criticizing how the Wounded Warrior Project operates.  That they don’t spend enough money on veterans or spend it on the wrong things.  You could also probably find articles criticizing Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Harriet Tubman.  You have to decide yourself what to believe.  Charity Navigator, which rates over 5,400 charities, gives Wounded Warrior Project an 86.11 out of a possible 100.  In comparison, the VFW Foundation was given an 83.53.  If I recall correctly, anything over an 82 is considered a good rating.  Of course, you can also find articles criticizing Charity Navigator, so make your own choice.  There are plenty of charities dedicated to helping veterans.  The Fisher House Foundation, dedicated to helping Military families received a 99.62 rating.  The Independence Fund, not rated by Charity Navigator, is an 100%, all-volunteer non-profit who’s Board of Directors is comprised entirely of combat veterans. Army Emergency Relief (AER) is a private nonprofit organization in 1942.  AER’s sole mission is to help soldiers and their dependents.  For now, I’ll stick with the Wounded Warrior Project.  If it’s good enough for Bill O-Reilly, it’s good enough for me.
