DAV Direct Donation

With almost 1,300 chapters and 1.3 million members across the country, DAV empowers our nation’s heroes and their families by helping to provide the resources they need and ensuring our nation keeps the promises made to them.

DAV is a nonprofit charity that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, helping more than 1 million veterans in positive, life-changing ways each year. The organization provides more than 700,000 rides for veterans attending medical appointments and assists veterans with more than 300,000 benefit claims annually. In 2015, DAV helped attain more than $4 billion in new and retroactive benefits to care for veterans, their families and survivors.

DAV is also a leader in connecting veterans with meaningful employment, hosting job fairs and providing resources to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream their sacrifices have made possible.

DAV Chapter 16 has been an active Veterans service organization of the DAV Department of Arizona and the National DAV organization since December 15, 1950. The sole mission of the Chapter is to assist veterans and veteran families in obtaining the best quality of life possible.

The Chapter also works directly with the Northern Arizona Veterans Medical Center by providing recreational programs at both the Community Living Center, and the Domiciliary. We sponsor and support field trips, BINGO, Horse Racing, Sporting Events, Plays, Rodeos, recreational room supplies and other activities for veterans hospitalized in these facilities.
