Veteran & First-Responder Outreach

Our veterans and first-responders are an underserved and underappreciated segment of our nation's society. A founding principle of VPIG is to counter this trend through charitable donation to worthy 501 (c) (3) organizations serving this segment of the population.

The VPIG vision is profoundly more robust. By year 10 of operations, we strive to fully fund endeavors such as tiny home villages adjacent to VA healthcare facilities (countering homelessness and health access barriers) and community-based programs offering services to veterans and first-responders suffering from PTSD and similar psychological ailments.

Our circle of beneficence is constantly expanding. To date, we have experienced the privilege of providing charitable donations to the organizations listed below. We are motivated to do more and urge you to contact us to learn how you can contribute!
