Why Donate

Songs4Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports local veterans through a benefit concert annually. When you donate to Songs4Soldiers your tax-deductible donation goes to help veterans who are in our area and who need our help.

The profits from the Songs4Soldiers concert will go to combat veterans in the midwest region who are either wounded, disabled, suffering from PTSD, or possibly just veterans who are down on their luck. The funds will be used to pay for specific needs these individuals may have such as monthly expenses, home improvements, provisions for their family, etc.

Songs4Soldiers uses sponsorship funds to cover all production and marketing costs. Therefore, we are able to allocate 100% of all donations directly to the veterans we assist.
