The primary purpose of the HPVA is to raise funds to assist U.S. military veterans suffering from injuries or disabilities related to their military service. The HPVA also offers financial contributions to existing charitable organizations that provide assistance to U.S. military veterans. The HPVA offers financial support to any activity that perpetuates the memory of any veteran from Southwest Florida who died while in the service of the U.S. Military. Up to the current date, HPVA has provided grants over $300,000+ in support of its mission. The following are examples:
- $75K to Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs
- $32.5K to Hearts & Homes
- $20K to Hodges University Scholarship Program
- $25k to Home Base
