Spirit of America
Spirit of America (SoA) is a 501c3 nonprofit charity that supports the safety and success of Americans serving abroad and the local people and partners they seek to help. It provides private assistance in response to needs identified by American military and civilian personnel, adding the agility, innovation, and resources of the American private sector to the capabilities of the US government and military in support of US missions abroad.
This support makes US troops and diplomats safer and more successful in their missions and helps local people suffering from conflict and extremism who are often not reached by large-scale aid programs. Spirit of America provides the American people a way to understand, connect with, and support the vital work of US personnel serving abroad.
Spirit of America is funded entirely by private contributions from individuals, foundations, and businesses. SoA has raised more than $31 million in donations from 16,000 individual donors. Donors may earmark their donations, and 100 percent of their gift will be used for the direct project expenses they specify. Since SoA’s founding, 81 percent of the organization’s expenditures have gone to program expenses.
