Other Ways to Give

From organizing a fundraiser to making recurring donations as a Homefront Hero, Operation Homefront provides a variety of ways to give to and support military families.

Become a Homefront Hero

Give a recurring gift and help even more military families by becoming a Hometown Hero!

Homefront Heroes is Operation Homefront’s membership program for donors who give to the organization via recurring gifts.

Recurring gifts makes giving easy, and allows us to better project anticipated donations to the organization. Donations are withdrawn automatically via electronic check or credit card transactions. Every contribution, regardless of amount, is significant to the work and mission of Operation Homefront.

Most federal employees elect to pledge a specific amount to be withheld regularly from their pay beginning in January and continuing through December. One-time gifts are also possible.

Donate to Operation Homefront using code #12526.

The campaign begins on Sept. 1 and normally goes through Dec. 15. Find out more about the CFC.

Non-Cash Gifts (In-Kind)

Donations of goods and services, also known as in-kind gifts, are extremely valuable to Operation Homefront. In-kind gifts can be made by individuals, organizations, or corporations. Operation Homefront accepts donated in-kind services to include, but not limited to, legal support, automotive repair, heating and air conditioning services, roofing, and accounting services. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible.

Organize a Fundraiser

Do you own a business and want to direct proceeds to Operation Homefront? Or do you want to sell raffle tickets for donated items and raise money for us? Even if you just want to set up a lemonade stand, there are lots of ways to organize a fundraiser to benefit military families. Once the money is raised, you can send it to us to help military families (Hint: We love getting pictures of patriotic kids and lemonade stands!).
