    Honor Roll of Organizational Donors

    The Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation announces its Corporate and Organizational Donor “Star Sponsor” recognition for those organizations and business who have made and are continuing to make extraordinary donations to the Foundation.  The PVF relies on donations, large and small, to fund the assistance we provide to veterans in need.  To become a Star Sponsor, an organization needs to give at least $10,000 to the Foundation.  We hope that these exceptionally generous corporations and organizations will continue to support the PVF and that others will join this Honor Roll.  

    Five-Star Sponsors donated $50,000 or more to the Foundation.
