Sport Clips is Proud to Support Our Veterans
For ten years, Sport Clips has been a proud supporter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and since 2013, we have supported the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program, which provides scholarships for service members and veterans for use at post-secondary schools and trade schools.
During our 2016 campaign period, we met our $1 million goal for VFW through generous donations from our Clients and product partners. To date, we have awarded more than 700 scholarships and provided more than $3 million in scholarships, for a total of nearly $5 million donated to VFW. Since the inception of our Help A Hero program in 2007, when we originally began providing phone calls home for service men and women stationed overseas, our donation totals have steadily increased and we look forward to breaking records again in 2017.

From state universities to private institutions to trade schools to technical education, hundreds of veterans and service members have used the $5,000 per semester scholarship to work toward finishing their education and taking the next steps in their post-military careers. While our scholarship recipients’ career aspirations vary, these men and women share a common desire to make a difference as civilians, and succeed for themselves, their families and their country.
