TriSoldier Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that seeks to help disabled veterans regain a semblance of normalcy through participation of sport. TriSoldier is a member of GuideStar. GuideStar provides information on non-profits to potential donors to provide transparency and enable them to make informed decisions with their charitable donations. 100% of your donation goes to the TriSoldier Project and is tax deductible.
We are VERY small, but we try to make a difference by having NO overhead. We have no employees, no advertising budget and no shiny office. Everything we do is done with volunteers. Except for a small amount spent on stamps and phone calls, the donations go directly back to helping disabled veterans get to their goal events.
