About Semper Fi & America’s Fund
Semper Fi & America’s Fund provides urgently needed resources and lifetime support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Case managers from Semper Fi & America’s Fund work one-on-one with service members and veterans in order to understand and support their individual needs right now and throughout their lifetime. They keep their overhead low so their impact on the lives of service members and veterans is greater. Semper Fi & America’s Fund has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: an A+ from CharityWatch – one of only two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year – and six consecutive “4-Star” ratings from Charity Navigator, an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities.
