Phil Monkress supports several charities targeted at current and former members of the armed services, including the Wounded Warrior Project. Through the support of contributors like Phil Monkress, Wounded Warrior Project not only undertakes its own projects but also provides donations to other organizations.
Organizations that wish to receive money through the Wounded Warrior Project’s grant program must be tax-exempt groups providing programs and services free of charge to veterans and their families. These organizations must also meet needs identified by WWP in one of four areas: engagement, body, mind, and economic empowerment.
WWP extensively evaluates each organization requesting a grant, ensuring that it has a distinctive take on charitable programming that meets an unfulfilled need. The maximum amount an organization can request through a letter of interest to WWP is $250,000. Grant recipients must submit two reports during the course of the grant year, indicating how operations have proceeded thanks to the assistance of WWP.
