AUSTIN, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Texas.gov, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) are making it easier than ever for Texans to support Texas veterans. With 1.6 million veterans living in Texas, the demand for services that benefit veterans and their families is significant. In recognition of this need, the TVC’s Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) program offers these online donation options, with secure payment processing provided by Texas.gov:
- TVC’s “Keep the Wheels Turning” campaign lets Texans make a quick, tax-deductible donation when it’s time to renew a vehicle registration.
- Even if it’s not time to renew a vehicle registration, there’s no need to wait. Texans can go directly to the FVA’s online donation application to contribute.
These donations support grants to charitable organizations, local governments, and Veteran Service Organizations that provide direct services to Texas veterans at the community level. Since its launch in 2009, the FVA program has awarded almost $30 million to 100+ organizations for 145 grants that have benefitted nearly 150,000 Texas veterans and their families.
With Veterans Day celebrations occurring across the state next week, Texas.gov encourages all Texans to show their support with a donation that will fund services including housing assistance for homeless veterans, short-term financial assistance, family and child services, legal assistance, counseling for post-traumatic stress, and more.
