The Green Beret Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 foundation that provides financial support, immediate need supplies, caregiver assistance, and educational scholarships to wounded Army Special Forces soldiers and their families.
The GBF is a relatively small organization allowing them to work quickly and efficiently in whatever environments they may be needed to serve Green Berets in. For example, when a Green Beret is wounded in action and sent to a treatment facility away from their home base, GBF will immediately provide financial assistance to ease the burden of getting family members to their bedside as well as extended support in the recovery process determined on a case by case basis which could include anything from paying for travel costs incurred when a wounded Green Beret’s daughter needed to receive leukemia treatment from a specialist out of their insurance coverage area to funding modifications for road bikes so that they may be used by traumatically wounded soldiers in their rehabilitation process. GBF also awards scholarship funds to the children of wounded Green Berets as well as a “welcoming gift” of sorts which includes a GORUCK rucksack filled with much needed items recommended by fellow Green Berets who have been wounded as well.
Each Ascent participant is required to raise $1,500 prior to the trip – so with our full trip of 60 we’ll be raising at least $90,000 for GBF – but I am hoping that with your help I will be able to meet my goal of raising $3,000. If you would like to make a donation please use this webpage to do so. I would also like to make it clear that these donations go directly to GBF and do not fund the trip to Colorado in any way. I have included links below if you would like any additional information about the Green Beret Foundation or GORUCK. Thanks very much for taking the time to read all of this and I greatly appreciate any level of support you are able to contribute. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.
