As of June 2013, Freedom Is Not Free is no longer accepting donations or providing grants. We would like to thank our supporters and clients over the past eight years for facilitating our service to wounded veterans and their families.
American military casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan have exceeded 46,000, with over 6,200 fatalities. Eighty percent of the wounded are in the 18-30 age range and face an entire life-time of recovery. Freedom Is Not Free, with the support of donors, aims to ease our heroes' and their families' burdens through donations to troops and their families by making donations to military families in the San Diego area as well as all over the United States.
Many people ask, "How can I help wounded veterans?" Remembering fallen soldiers is one of the ways everyone can get involved in supporting our troops. The generosity of supporters like you enables Freedom Is Not Free to offer grants to worthy recipients, to participate in the funding of valuable programs, and to ease the immeasurable weight being shouldered by so few for the benefit of all of us.
Freedom Is Not Free programs and grants are made possible solely by the generosity of donors; we receive no federal, state or local government support.
"Let us stand united in providing for our wounded, their families, and the families of the fatally wounded. A contribution, large or small, will make a difference in the lives of our courageous service members."

"In a country of nearly three hundred million people, only two and half million serve in the active-duty armed forces, the Reserves and the National Guard. Only these warriors and their families are experiencing the day-to-day sacrifices, small and large, that war requires."
"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
Freedom Is Not Free is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting wounded service members and their families, and the families of the fallen. Freedom Is Not Free makes grants to Purple Heart recipients and their families to meet their immediate financial needs, including but not limited to, the expenses associated with medical care, travel, home modification, and paying bills. We support community projects and provide activities for wounded service members and their families.
