2023 Got Your 6 VetFest: Country Artists and Military Community Come Together in Music City

We welcomed hundreds of local veterans, active-duty service members, and military families at second annual Got Your 6 VetFest in Nashville. Recording artists Gretchen Wilson, Brian Kelley, The War and Treaty, Ashley Cooke, and Briston Maroney performed for the Middle Tennessee military community. It was a day of great food, games, raffles, and people!

We Stand Out

We offer our programming at no cost to our partners.

We are the nation’s largest network of communities collaborating for impact in the lives of veterans, yielding the nation’s largest and most inclusive set of data about the capacity of those communities to work together effectively.

We find, fund, and facilitate a robust portfolio of educational resources for the communities in our network, focused on increasing their capacity to collaborate for success.

We promote shared learning by leveraging the expertise of subject matter experts for stakeholder benefit.

We embrace all collaborative frameworks – from VA-inspired Community Veteran Engagement Boards to veteran collaboratives anchored at community foundations, mayors’ offices, and chambers of commerce – and encourage and provide resources that facilitate the inclusion of non-veteran stakeholders.

We continuously assess the capacity-building and learning needs of our local partner collaboratives and help design, fund, and coordinate the delivery of tailored technical assistance based on their unique needs.

We advocate for the engagement of grantmakers as stakeholders in veteran wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between local partners and grantees?

Grantees submit an application for funding during an open grant cycle and receive funding to support a specific program. Grants funding is not automatically renewed or guaranteed; organizations must re-apply to request additional funding.

More Information on Grants

Local partners receive smaller funding amounts often earmarked for certain issues, and a partnership with us is much more than just funding. We offer mentorship, training and resources to help smaller organizations grow and work together to achieve the maximum positive impact on their local veteran and military community.
