Our Mission

In the past decade many of our beloved countrymen have been overseas fighting against what seems to be a never ending stream of terrorism. In March of 2003, Nevada Benefits Foundation was created to support these honorable service men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything for the ultimate prize of freedom.

The Nevada Benefits Foundation was started in an effort to raise awareness through our Defending Freedom wristbands whereby we have found a way to keep our troops always in our hearts and thoughts while showing continued support. We have “banded together” in pride and patriotism recognizing we will never forget about the sacrifices made by the brave men and women fighting to defend our freedom. Over 673,000 Defending Freedom Wristbands have been sent overseas to our troops to show unity and encouragement.

In our continuing effort to lend assistance we have made a significant difference in letting troops know that they will never be forgotten. 100% of our proceeds go to military charities to help the troops themselves in addition to their families. In doing this, we have influenced the lives of many individuals and families worldwide. Some of the charities we have donated to include Marine Parents.com, The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, Armor 4 Troops, Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, Soldier Ride, Snow Ball Express, Disabled Sports USA and Wounded Warrior Project. We also provide assistance to other military charities by donating our Defending Freedom wristbands for them to sell and keep 100% of all revenues from the sales for their charity. By making these contributions we are the one place that the troops and their families know they can come for support.

In 2005, The Nevada Benefits Foundation commissioned a memorial located at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The memorial is comprised of seven sandstones with the engraved names of Nevada’s own fallen servicemen and women. Once a year the Foundation hosts a dedication ceremony for the families of the fallen heroes to honor their sacrifice. The ceremony is open to the public and provides a forum for the families as well as the community to show solidarity and support.

Nevada Benefits Foundation has offered a way for all of us to show our appreciation and gratitude to our troops. By joining forces with Nevada Benefits Foundation you can make a statement of backing to the brave, selfless and courageous men and women that defend our freedom every day! We invite everyone to visit www.defendingfreedom.org to learn more about how to “band together” to make a positive change in the lives of our military and their families
