We are very proud of our philanthropic efforts. Our founder is a Wounded Warrior, shot by a sniper in 2006 in Baghdad. Therefore, as a Wounded Warrior and as a service disabled veteran who owns a small business, two of our primary focuses are helping Wounded Warriors and other Vetrepreneurs. Second, we help innocent children impacted by war including Gold Star families. Third, we prefer to help smaller grassroots organizations.
We also do more than simple donations – we prefer to be engaged as volunteers in the causes we support. For example, our CEO is a certified peer mentor with the Wounded Warrior Project, the USSOCOM Care Coalition, and has served as a primary peer mentor to 4 Special Operations wounded warriors (3 Green Berets and an Air Force Combat Controller). We have helped a non-profit get started called Invisible Wounds (for PTSD). We serve as business mentors for transitioning Vets with Commit Foundation.
Over our history we have donated to a number of causes ranging from breast cancer to autism and non-profits both large and small. Here are just a few of the organizations we are proud to support.
TD Foundation provides aid to children directly affected by war in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to children of wounded warriors and fallen heroes here in the US. We raise funds in the US and then use them to arrange for medical treatment and/or purchase critical daily items such as clothes, food, water, school supplies, vitamins, toys, etc. We partner with local organizations, institutions, and people to locate and distribute these goods and services to those in need. Our initial recipients will be Iraqi children affected by the current war. This is a grassroots organization. All participants in this fund are volunteers, 100% of donated funds will go to those children and families in need.
The foundation understands the wide range of obstacles facing returning veterans and is committed to investing significant time and attention in individual veterans and their families to assist with their professional realignment after they serve our country in uniform. The COMMIT Foundation creates serendipity for veterans by fostering mentorship, extending and growing professional networks, promoting familiar camaraderie, and setting the stage for inspiring moments. The COMMIT Foundation works with military veterans from all services, branches, and ranks. Most of the Veterans who come to us have served in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan but not all.
Code of Support
The Code of Support Foundation works to engage and leverage the full spectrum of this nation’s resources to ensure that our service members, veterans, and their families receive the support they need and have earned through their service and sacrifice.
The O.A.S.I.S. Group was born from the need to provide Special Operations Veterans with a professional analysis of their claims for Veterans Administration benefits. O.A.S.I.S. assists the Special Operations Warrior through its comprehensive understanding of the Veterans Administration processes and system to ensure that the SOF Warrior is thoroughly and fairly evaluated and through professional preparation of claims. “Help Us Help Them” – is our current slogan.
Troops First Foundation
Tom Deierlein is a founding member of the Board of Advisors.
Troops First Foundation develops, operates and raises funds for branded wellness, quality of life and sports-based initiatives in support of today’s military personnel. These T1F initiatives facilitate a greater recognition and an enhanced understanding throughout the general population of the quality and character of the men and women who volunteer to serve. Both non-injured and injured military personnel and their families will be served at no cost to them by T1F’s strategically integrated quality of life, branding and wellness initiatives. Initiatives include: Operation Proper Exit (taking Warriors back to theater to find closure ), Operation Coaches and Warriors ( NCAA college basketball coaches serve as mentors ), Operation V.I.P., “Visit Important People” ( develop quality of life reintegration experiences for severely burned Warriors at the Brook Army Medical Center ) and Operation Front Door (Housing grant program for severely wounded).
USSOCOM Care Coalition
Tom Deierlein is an active mentor in CCRP.
The USSOCOM Care Coalition’s mission is to provide SPECIAL OPERATIONS Warriors and their families a model advocacy program in order to enhance their quality of life and strengthen SPECIAL OPERATIONS readiness. Since our inception in 2005, the United States Special Operations Command’s Care Coalition has continued to track, support, and advocate for all Special Operations Forces’ wounded, ill, and injured service members and their families. Our commitment is to provide these individuals with exceptional service and valuable information in order to enhance their quality of life. We, as an organization excel in advocating a “what is” to a “what should be.”
