Giving Tuesday – December 3, 2019
GivingTuesday harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. We believe the movement will become the first global day of giving and a year-round platform for strengthening civil society.
The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) is to operate as a not-for-profit corporation exclusively for charitable, educational, patriotic, and civic improvement purposes. BVA promotes the welfare of blinded veterans preserving and strengthening a spirit of fellowship among blinded veterans. BVA will be there with encouragement and support, to ensure no blinded veteran is left behind.
The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) was formed in 1945 and was chartered by Congress in 1958. BVA is comprised of Staff and National Officers, 6 District Directors overseeing 50 Regional Groups, coupled with various Auxiliaries and several structured Committees.
By becoming a BVA member, you are not only supporting our free programs for blinded veterans, but also:
- access to VA-certified Veteran Service Officers who assist blinded and vision-impaired veterans in navigating to and through services and benefits afforded them by virtue of their military service;
BVA supports Blinded Veterans with Veterans Assistance Programs. Since 1945, BVA has been advocating for blind veterans and their families in order to assist them in regaining their independence. We offer a range of veteran’s assistance programs which are available to any veteran whether they are a member of BVA or not. We provide support for veterans through funding, advocacy and assistance with navigating the Department of Veterans Affairs claims processes to ensure seamless integration.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: National Veterans Service Organizations unite calling on the Department of Veterans Affairs to recognize diseases as Agent Orange presumptive conditions for disability benefits.
