Donors & Partners
The Military and Veteran Caregiver Network (MVCN) came about through the close collaboration of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), our anchor partner, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation (EDF), and donor partners including: the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). Hundreds of military and veteran service organizations, non-profit and faith-based organizations, public agencies, scholars, academic institutions and donor partners are actively engaged in the operation of the Network’s three (closed) Peer Support Programs and open services: the MVCN Resource Library, Caregiver Master Calendar and We Care Magazine.
