It's giving season and there are some standout nonprofits that support veterans, military members, and their families.

Semper Fi & America's Fund: The California-based nonprofit provides immediate financial assistance to the critically injured and ill and their families.

  • They're currently running the 12th-annual Double Down for Veterans campaign where every donation made to the fund will be matched up to $10 million until year-end.

Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors: For nearly three decades, TAPS has provided support, assistance, and resources for grieving military and veteran families through a national peer support network.

  • In addition to donations, there are volunteer opportunities at the Arlington headquarters, for peer mentorships and events.

Team Rubicon: The veteran-led humanitarian organization is literally boots on the ground, serving global communities during and after crises and natural disasters. Volunteers and donations are welcome.

Travis Manion Foundation: Veterans and families of the fallen are empowered through this nonprofit that focuses on mental health, mentorships, and community events.

  • Donations through Veterans Day will be matched up to $25,000.
