Four Years. $500 Million.
The USO is dedicated to giving more of our military service members the critical connections they need to be strong and resilient. Our goals are many and the needs are great, but with generous and dedicated people like you standing with us, we can reach our ambitious objectives over the next four years. That is why we are launching the Fueling the Future Campaign to raise $500 million by the end of 2020. For decades, the USO has stood by the side of our service members and their families. The campaign will raise the critical funds we need so they can always count on us.
Our centers are the heart and soul of the USO, providing a piece of home at more than 200 locations around the world. Last year, the USO provided more than 11 million service connections to service members and their families, but military needs continue to grow. The USO must enhance and expand our center footprint around the world so that no matter where they are, they can count on us to be by their side.
Service members and their families crave a little bit of home to remember why they serve and sacrifice. Our innovative programs help strengthen service members by giving them the chance to recharge, communicate and connect. The USO must respond to new demands and the changing needs of our military by expanding our programming and piloting new programs.
Transitioning from military service to civilian life turns a service member’s life around in profound ways. It’s a new life—one without regimens or commanding officers dictating your next move. Fortunately, they will still have the USO with them. With more than 250,000 transitioning annually, transition support is one of the most critically important gaps the USO can fill. We need to grow and enhance these vital programs so we can meet a greater spectrum of needs.
The USO Quick Reaction Fund gives us the ability to address urgent needs today, while helping to shore up resources for the future so we can always be by the side of our nation’s brave service men and women. We owe it to our service members to always be ready to strengthen and support them, whatever their needs may be. The USO Quick Reaction Fund can keep the USO nimble and responsive so our military remains strong, resilient and prepared long into the future, and your contribution will be used where it is needed most.
The USO Fueling the Future Campaign aims to raise $500 million to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
