Since 2013, Detroit Tigers All-Star pitcher Justin Verlander has donated $1M directly to great veteran nonprofit organizations, and since 2011 has hosted over 4,000 veteran family members in his suite at Comerica Park. In 2016 he founded Wins for Warriors Foundation, a 501c3 charity based in Detroit, to empower military veterans with a strong focus on family-bonding activities and collaboration with other organizations.

Because of the dedicated service of our military members, veterans and their families, I was given the opportunity to pursue my dream. That is why I contribute everything I’ve done, all my successes in life, to those fighting for our freedom. I want to give back and help as much as I can.

 

HOW WE EMPOWER VETERANS

Pillar 1: Family Bonding Events

We create opportunities and events for military and veteran families to bond through sports and other fun, family-friendly activities to aide in the transition from military to civilian life. It also is an impactful medium to show appreciation and support for the entire family’s commitment to service.

Filling a Major Gap

Difficulty reconnecting with family after deployment or military activities and training. Also recognizes the entire family’s commitment to service and the importance placed upon their support.

Programming Overview

4-6 Major events/activities per year – sports clinics, races, holiday events, etc.

Year-Round Opportunities – sporting tickets, suite visits, family movie nights, etc.

Use this pillar to help raise awareness for Pillar #2: Resource Center.

Pillar 2: Resource Center

Provide an online resource and call center to help raise awareness for and connect veterans w/ the appropriate organizations to fulfill needs. Our goal is to create a concierge program with world-class customer service and resources.

Filling a Major Gap

Difficulty navigating the resources and benefits that exist to fill their individual needs. Over 40,000 organizations to assist = data overload.

Programming Overview

Online Resource – All events and promotions will direct veteran families back to a website which will have the tools to connect them with an organization that can fill needs.

In-Person Resource – Strategically placed call centers to facilitate “concierge” services, as well as a location that veterans can meet in person as needed as well.

Work w/ other tech, nonprofit, corporate and public entities to overcome this challenge and fund venture.

Thank you again for everything you do. Not just for me and my family but for all of us. Veterans die every day, but because of you and your organization I can guarantee fewer will fall. I know this because you and your organization gave me a kick in the right direction. Forward.
