Celebrate the 4th by Supporting Our Troops

After the grilled hot dogs and the fireworks this 4th of July holiday, you may take a moment to reflect on all the men and women who have given their lives defending our country and considered ways in which you could honor their sacrifice. And with America engaged in military action in the Middle East in recent years, you may even think about how you could provide assistance to injured soldiers and their families. Sadly, there are many "charities" that will use your compassion for veterans to coax you into supporting their inefficient, if not fraudulent, operations. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't give! To help you give with confidence to military and veteran-related charities this 4th of July, our site includes a hot topic which highlight the highest and lowest-rated of these charities.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
