About Us

A father wearing his military uniform walks with his young son.We at Minnesota Veterans 4 Veterans Trust Fund (V4V) believe that veterans are an asset to society. Our mission is to serve them as they have served us, by supporting with grants the organizations that empower them to integrate successfully into civilian life.

Who We Are

We are a group of Minnesota veterans concerned for the quality of life of our fellow veterans. Our decision making team is made up of a group of eight appointees from four different organizations: The Minnesota American Legion, Disabled American Veterans of Minnesota, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Department of Minnesota, and the Department of Minnesota Veterans of Foreign Wars. One-of-a-kind, we owe our unique board composition to how and why the Minnesota Veterans 4 Veterans Trust Fund was created.

We are committed to funding those mission-driven organizations for example, the below photo of the annual fishing program sponsored by the major veterans organizations that are doing the best work to support veterans within our grant focus areas, regardless of affiliation. You can view a complete list of our board of directors.
