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.



Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs Gives and Goldman Sachs have partnered with The Mission Continues in an effort to develop a linked pipeline model to support veterans as they reintegrate into civilian life.  Goldman Sachs Gives and Goldman Sachs have invested $6 million over five years in The Mission Continues’ Fellowship Program.

American Express

American Express invests in projects that provide meaningful volunteer and civic engagement opportunities for community members so that they can play an active role in strengthening their neighborhoods from within. The company recognizes that veterans continue to lead the way in serving communities and is proud to support efforts to put their talents to work on the home front. In celebration of the 2016 National Park Service Centennial, American Express and The Mission Continues are partnering to organize regional Service Platoons (in Brooklyn, New York: Phoenix, Arizona; Miami, Florida and Los Angeles, California) focused on revitalizing and promoting stewardship of parks and public lands, with an emphasis on National Park locations.


BAE Systems

BAE Systems joined us in 2015 to provide more opportunities for veterans to continue serving across the country. Aligned with their focus on supporting communities and members of the armed forces and their families, BAE Systems is investing in the Fellowship Program and is the Lead Sponsor for three Service Platoons—in Boston/Lowell, San Diego and launching a new Service Platoon in Washington, D.C. this summer.



As part of Boeing’s efforts to support veterans and military families, the company has made a major investment in The Mission Continues Fellowship Program, a program dedicated to helping veterans channel their skills and talents to building stronger communities.  Through a shared commitment to bring Fellows and nonprofits together, Boeing and The Mission Continues will allow veterans to continue serving their country at home while pursuing career and educational opportunities.

In 2013, The Mission Continues launched its first-ever large scale cause marketing partnership with Scentsy Fragrance. Scentsy Fragrance is a direct selling company and international leader in fragrance, offering a variety of home and personal fragrance products. From September 2013 through February 2014, Scentsy featured a charitable cause warmer, Service and Sacrifice, in its catalog. Scentsy donated $8 from the sale of every warmer to The Mission Continues. To date, the campaign has raised over $268,000.


The Paul Singer Foundation

The Paul E. Singer Foundation has been a supporter of The Mission Continues since 2008. Their contribution has played an integral role in The Mission Continues’ rapid growth in scale and impact. After a deep review of our model and results, the Foundation recently increased their support of The Mission Continues in 2013.

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.

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.



Wasserman Foundation

The Mission Continues thanks Wasserman Foundation for their support of our programs, and for helping veterans successfully transition home through continued service.
