 Silver State Veterans
Assistance Foundation

There are many organizations that  help veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Unfortunately they often do not have the funds to get men and women who served our country off the streets when they are homeless, provide a few dollars to help pay a utility bill or meet some other emergency.  It is the mission of Silver State Veterans Assistance Foundation to help these groups to carry out their work with the men and women who wore the uniforms of our country.


The Silver State Veterans Assistance Foundation is non-profit [501(c)(3) Corporation in which 100% of all donations are used to help veterans.  All members of the Board of Trustees are non-paid volunteers. We are motivated solely by our desire to see that needy veterans in Nevada are assisted by knowledgeable and qualified organizations.

In helping us you will be helping homeless, disabled, indigent veterans and their families.  Just about every veteran and their families has a legitimate need for help.  Whatever you give goes solely to needy veterans and their families.

On Memorial Day, it is easy to remember those veterans and their families who gave their lives.  On Veterans Day it is easy to remember those veterans and their families who still live.  Our goal is to be there to help them all year long.

Ed Kranson, President,

Silver State Veterans Assistance Foundation
