Support LMVFM

LMVFM is a 501(c)(3) faith based military ministry. Therefore, in keeping with our religious beliefs, and our need to remain free of government intrusion which is inevitable if an agency receives government support.

  1. LMVFM does not, and will not solicit, or accept any government funding, aid, assistance or resources. LMVFM is also blessed by those men and women who provide the necessary financial resources and support that have helped to fund the work we do with those we serve.
  2. All funds, resources and support received by LMVFM comes from:
    • ministry partners
    • memberships
    • private donations
    • churches and non-government groups
    • member donated “Thrivent Choice Dollars”
    • member directed “Kroger Rewards”
    • non-government grants when they can be obtained
    • training programs which are written by, and provided by LMVFM staff
    • fundraising events such as LMVFM’s annual “Battle Rattle 5k & 10k Run/Walk, and Annual Christmas Appeal.

We pray that you will feel moved to become one of our members by supporting our ministry through prayer and financial support for those we serve.
