Wounded Warrior Project

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and The Mission Continues are working together to expand community service opportunities for veterans. This collaboration will engage thousands of veterans and communities across the country in local volunteerism through the Fellowship and Service Platoons programs. By working together, The Mission Continues and WWP aim to utilize the skills of veterans to solve community challenges while helping injured veterans achieve personal success at home. Additionally, we are increasing awareness of these opportunities among injured post-9/11 veterans and their families and friends, including WWP Alumni. Learn more. WWP_website_alt_1.jpg

The Paul Singer Foundation

Southwest Airlines

The Mission Continues is proud to call Southwest Airlines our Official Airline. Since 2008, Southwest has supported The Mission Continues with both cash donations and airline tickets. The tickets they have donated over the last six years have enabled us to bring Fellows from around the country together for their Fellow Class Orientations and our annual Veterans Day Gala. The two organizations are excited to continue and expand their efforts in 2014. Southwest (2)


Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation

The Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation generously funded our Bravo Class Orientation in May 2013.  With the Foundation’s support, 70 veterans from more than 25 states gathered in New York City to learn the skills they would need to succeed as Mission Continues Fellows, rallied more than one hundred volunteers, including 20 SAC Capital employees, to refurbish a Brooklyn school, and took an oath at the 9/11 Memorial to continue their legacy of service in their communities.  Additionally, the Foundation’s investment directly sponsored 12 veterans as they served for six months as Mission Continues Fellows, while also pursuing successful transitions home.

Since 2010, Target has contributed over $1,000,000 and engaged over 600 team members in service with The Mission Continues. In 2011, after collaborating on service projects across the country on Veterans Day, we were co-nominated for the Best Partnership Award in the Corporate Citizenship Awards. Since then, we have expanded the partnership to include Fellowships for veterans serving in education and youth development, our annual Veterans Day Gala has been reenergized with Target as the presenting sponsor – and we have recently launched the 1st Service Platoon in Minneapolis-St. Paul with Target as the lead sponsor. unnamed
