Our Mission

American Freedom Foundation honors, serves and supports Veterans, military service members, and their families. We aim to help their transition to the civilian workforce through partnerships with military focused organizations.

More About Us

There’s Experienced and then There’s Veteran

Today’s Vets are among the most highly-qualified candidates for a variety of jobs in any workplace. Their military experience extends well beyond academic achievements and vocational training, while their dedication and work ethic is second to none.

Making An Impact

American Freedom Foundation offers several resources and partners that help Veterans and their families. Warriors To The Workforce hiring events have helped thousands find civilian employment opportunities. Scholarships valued in excess of $9.2 million have been awarded to date to dependents through the AFF/Kaplan University Military Family Scholarship Program. The AFF concert series has raised $1.5 million for organizations that directly serve and support our Veterans and their families.
