I’ve always wondered how one would go about setting up a real veteran’s charity. I’m guessing there’s some involved paperwork and IRS red tape.
It’s not hard at all and the paperwork is the same as any other non-profit thus one should be very careful donating to veterans charities to be sure they are legitimate.
The Vietnam Veterans of America is a complete scam and very little of the proceeds make it to veterans.
The Wounded Warrior Project is one of the best and is the charity I support.
