The mission of America Salutes You is to honor and raise awareness of our veterans, service members and their loved ones.
Less than one percent of our population serves to make the world safe for the rest of us.They make many sacrifices, the most important being that they write a blank check, payable to the United States for an amount up to and including their lives. We owe them a huge debt and they have many needs when they return including healthcare, mental health services, housing, education, jobs and finding a career to support their families, legal, financial readiness and much more.
Donations will be raised via text and online fundraising during the broadcast with all funds raised going to the America Salutes You Campaign, a McCormick Foundation Fund. All fundraising costs are covered by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, ensuring 100% of all donations will be granted to the eight preselected nonprofit organizations helping veterans, service members and their families across the country.
