Pathfinder Labs is on a mission to make unbiased, AI-driven analysis accessible to every Veteran and Military community nonprofit - from the big names with thousands of members to the tiny service dog trainers. We in the MilVet community need them all, and they need you. Your restricted gift will help the selected nonprofit do more for all of their programs and services, including:
Select a nonprofit (charitable 501c3) from the list below. These organizations are committed to improving their services through an evidence-based process, getting data-driven suggestions that will increase their operational capability, improve budget efficiency, and - most importantly - identify and meet their participants' needs. All they need is the funds to get started. You can learn more about the organization or specific MilVet program, including their feedback, by clicking on the organization name. Each organization is an approved 501c3 charity registered in the United States. The link provided will take you to the IRS record for the organization providing MilVet programming.
NOTE: You can send a portion of the identified amounts; we will update the Total Needed column until the full gift is reached.
ALSO NOTE: You can also send more than the identified amount, we just ask that you complete the agreement (see Step 2) for only what is requested so the remaining amount can be unrestricted. You know, for the nonprofit's tax reporting and accountability and all that!
