Washington, D.C. – The Elizabeth Dole Foundation today announced Code of Support Foundation as a recipient of a 2017 grant from the Foundation’s Hidden Heroes Fund. The Fund is dedicated to supporting innovative programs making a direct impact in the lives of America’s military and veteran caregivers.
More than half a million dollars will be distributed to fourteen nonprofit organizations to create new initiatives or expand existing programs. The 2017 grant recipients were competitively selected from among nearly 150 applications from organizations nationally.
“When the Foundation launched Hidden Heroes in September, we renewed our commitment to do all we can to improve the lives of military caregivers, those spouses, mothers, dads, children, siblings, and friends who are caring for America’s wounded warriors,” said Senator Elizabeth Dole. “As part of this multifaceted initiative, we established the Hidden Heroes Fund to award grants to nonprofit organizations that are making a real difference in the lives of America’s military and veteran caregivers.”
