Veteran and Military Charities
The IAI Foundation provides grants that support charities that work closely with veterans, active duty service members and their families. Why are military and veteran charities of special importance to The IAI Foundation? Many IAI employees are military experienced, some continue to serve in the Guard and Reserve and the important work that IAI employees do each and every day has direct impact on the warfighter and our nation’s defense. The IAI Foundation and IAI employees take pride in supporting those who have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedom and in honoring our troops just as we honor our nation.
Nationwide Veteran and Military charity beneficiaries of grants from The IAI Foundation include such organizations as Diving With Heroes, The EOD Warrior Foundation, Walter Reed Army Fisher House, US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots, The USAF Museum, Homes For Our Troops, and the Paws and Stripes Foundation.
IAI employees make a significant impact on their communities through volunteerism and charitable giving. For some IAI employees, this means inspiring students to pursue STEM careers or helping lower income families to build affordable housing. For others, it means helping those with disabilities, feeding the hungry, promoting the arts, protecting the environment or supporting animal welfare. The community-based charities that IAI employees support are as diverse as IAI employees themselves.
The IAI Foundation understands that IAI employees are passionate about community activities and donate their time, talent and resources to organizations that are dedicated to this purpose. The IAI Foundation actively seeks out ways to support IAI employees and their work with community charities. We do so in two ways – through the administration of a Matching Gift Program and by grants to community organizations where IAI employees are actively involved.
Nationwide Community Charity beneficiaries of grants from The IAI Foundation include such organizations as: Habitat for Humanity, El Ranchito de los Ninos, the Maui Food Bank, Make a Wish Foundation and STEM School Programs in communities across the nation.
Charity Golf Classic
Each year in the fall, The IAI Foundation sponsors a Charity Golf Classic in Northern Virginia. The goal of the Charity Golf Classic is to raise money in support of military and veteran charities that are important to IAI employees. Beneficiaries have included Diving With Heroes, The EOD Warrior Foundation and the Walter Reed Army Fisher House. We are fortunate to have engage partners across and region and across the company in helping us raise money to support the work of these and similar organizations. All proceeds from the Charity Golf Classic go to the benefiting charities.
