Work Vessels for Veterans (WVFV)

Work Vessels for Veterans (WVFV) is an all-volunteer movement assisting returning veterans to begin their civilian careers or educational pursuits by acquiring and distributing the necessary start-up tools. Founded with the gift of a fishing boat that began a commercial fishing career for a returning Iraq veteran, the foundation is expanding its outreach to other industries to assist our returning military.

Our model is unique and based on a sustainable, “pay-it-forward” dynamic. We support veteran entrepreneurs so they can establish businesses that thrive, so they can then hire more veterans creating quality jobs and career opportunities. Once the new business is profitable, WVFV becomes a beneficiary through contributions back into the organization including “gifts in kind.”

When we all actively help build and support veteran-owned businesses that hire other vets, then contribute to the model so even more entrepreneurs can succeed – the result is ongoing, long-lasting economic success and personal happiness – stronger families and stronger communities.

WVFV is currently developing relationships in many industry sectors to secure necessary products for distribution. All donations of products or services are directly distributed to veterans and all financial contributions are used to acquire, prepare or enhance those items to be gifted.

If you’re a veteran – thank you for your service! And welcome to our website and to our team. We’re here to help you continue your mission of service alongside ours.
