Impact of Funds

 Every tax-deductible donation advances the Armed Services Arts Partnership's mission to build and sustain communities in the arts for veterans and military families across the country. Your support allows an Iraq veteran to become a stand-up stand out, a Vietnam vet to learn how to play the piano, a WWII vet to effectively develop and tell his story, a college student to deeply connect with a local veteran for the first time, and an entire community to form around the expressive arts. If you would like to learn more about sponsoring a community, class, or veteran, please contact our Executive Director, Sam Pressler, at
