Patriotism without politics™
We are citizens serving the nation. Spirit of America is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit working alongside troops and diplomats to help them save and improve lives. We are recognized by Congress and approved by the Department of Defense to work alongside deployed US troops and provide private assistance to meet the local needs they identify.
Spirit of America’s mission is to engage citizens in preserving the promise of a free and better life. We do this by working alongside troops and diplomats to help them save and improve lives, promote values shared by Americans and our allies, strengthen relationships with allies, friends and partners, and demonstrate that the United States is a friend of those who seek a better life.
