To support our heroes and their families, Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of the company, work closely with organizations that share the same vision and understand the importance of giving back to those who serve our great nation.
DAV is the oldest veterans’ advocacy and assistance group in the country, and it helps more than 700,000 disabled American military veterans get access to health care each year. A loyal friend of theirs since 1922, Ford continues its support with scholarships, initiatives that help wounded military members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and vehicle donations to the organization's transportation network.GET MORE INFO About DAV (DISABLED AMERICAN VETERANS)
Nearly one million of our military veterans are afflicted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). But many are finding hope, thanks to the healing power of music therapy. Guitars for Vets provides veterans with guitars and the opportunity to learn how to play. Now, Ford is teaming up with Luke Combs to give the program even more volume – so even more veterans can find solace in the songs they love as well as the songs they have yet to write.GET MORE INFO About GUITARS FOR VETS
