Become a Subscribing Supporter

We know there are many people who wish they could donate, but wonder how to fit it into the family budget, or who wonder how their small contribution could possibly make a difference.  By becoming a Subscribing Supporter of our mission, you choose your contribution level to fit your monthly budget, allowing you to give more over a longer time period without breaking the bank, and allowing us to know how much we can count on each month to help in funding our Veteran Support projects.   Are you willing to give up a single cup of coffee each week to help those who need it?

Boots on the Ground NY is a 501c19 that doesn’t take government grants or have corporate sponsors; we survive completely off of community donations, events &  t-shirt and support gear sales. We have new Veteran referrals weekly asking for help with Food, Furnishings, and Financial Help. I personally find it impossible to say No to any Veteran or Military member that is on the right path, so keeping charitable money in local communities is so very important, not only to Our Mission, but to all grass root organizations and the Veterans that really need the assistance most. Please consider becoming a monthly donation subscriber.On behalf of the Veterans and Troops we assist – Thank You
