BENEFITING: ILLUMINATE LIFE
EVENT DATE: DEC 01, 2020
Illuminate Life is partnering with the Power of Purpose this #GivingTuesday (December 1) to raise the vital funds needed to support lives of women veterans’ and their families, empowering and achieving individual potential and strengths transitioning back into civilian life
For the last few decades, about 15 percent of the active-duty U.S. armed services have been female. Of those who deployed to the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, about 10 percent were female. The percentage of total female veterans (i.e., no longer on active duty) is lower, but this figure is increasing as more recent service members come off active duty and become veterans
Illuminate Life plays a vital role in building healthy communities by providing critical services that contribute to economic stability and mobility. They also strengthen communities in other important ways. Every donation made to Illuminate Life, up to $100,000 will be matched, dollar for dollar by the NLCA FOUNDATION
We focus on women who have served in the United States Armed Forces and their families, overcoming and understanding the barriers that hinder a seamless transition back into civilian life.
WE ARE THE VOICE FOR WOMEN VETERANS.
