Funds raised at the annual Patriots Ball, as well as a portion of the Chamber’s membership dues, help our community by:

  • Granting funds to local non-profit organizations assisting Veterans with a variety of social service needs through our Community Giving program.

Q. Why should I donate to the Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce?
If you want to thank the veterans who have served, and you appreciate the fact that we live in a free country and a free society with armed forces that ensure we remain a free country, your donation to the Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce is a direct reflection of your appreciation and thanks. Our mission is to create opportunities for veterans to find employment, open new businesses, and successfully transition into civilian life. The donations we receive enable us to fulfill that mission.

Q. Who will benefit from my donation?
We want to help all veterans who have served our country and protected our freedom. Many of those who return from duty are faced with unemployment or simply do not have the skills that make them eligible candidates for the current job market. Your donation helps support our operational costs so we can provide the necessary services and training our veterans need to secure jobs and become productive members of our society. Donation funds go to supporting our job fairs, fundraising efforts, and partner charities whose efforts are focused on supporting veterans.

Q. Do I need to be a member to donate?
Anyone can donate to the Southwest Veterans Chamber. You do not need to be a member to contribute. We are grateful for your support!

Q. What will I get in return for my donation?
All of our donors will receive a special Certificate of Appreciation for any donation made to the Southwest Veterans Chamber of Commerce. Plus, all donations are 100% tax deductible. Please contact us for further details.
