AVS works with world-class organizations to ensure that our donors' funds are being allocated in ways that best ensure that our veterans and their families are receiving the best possible care. We vet our beneficiaries to the greatest possible extent, and require that they provide us with consistent updates as to how our donors' funds are being allocated. Prior to making a disbursement, our partner programs are required to submit a budget and after funds are released, we ask that they provide letters of acknowledgement and a description of how our funds were spent. We do this to ensure the highest level of transparency, and to ensure that our donors understand that AVS is executing upon its mandate.
