All members of the Barrett family promise that all proceeds from donations will go directly to Veterans through payments of courses in either vocational or certificate programs, classroom supplies, books, tools, and certification exam fees.
How can we promise this?
Since the Barrett family operates the foundation and volunteers their time, the foundations Operating and Administrative costs will remain low. The current private funding that has been donated by the Barrett’s themselves will cover the costs of operating the foundation for the foreseeable future.
Why are we doing this?
There are many decorated military veterans who are extremely skilled in their chosen military profession. However, they are not able to work in these same professions they have worked for many years in the military because of the requirements of civilian certifications. By providing them the funding they require to pursue their passion we not only help the veterans and their families. They are also able to bring their experience to in-demand professions.
