Our Mission

The Freedom Warrior Charitable Fund is a component fund of the Trumbull County Community Foundation, a regional affiliate of the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania & Eastern Ohio, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Donations qualify for a maximum charitable deduction for tax purposes.

The mission of the Freedom Warrior Charitable Fund is to raise and distribute monies to help support the basic and special needs of disabled and disadvantaged veterans as well as the emergency needs of local military personnel in the Mahoning & Shenango Valleys. Monies are raised through our annual Freedom Warrior Golf Outing and Gala that is generously hosted by Avalon Golf & Country Club, as well as generous donations throughout the year from individuals and organizations. 

We are comprised of a committee of volunteers from the community as a result 99% of all monies raised is used to help veterans and military in need in our area. Since the first Freedom Warrior Golf Outing & Gala in August of 2014, the YARBCC Charitable Fund has granted over $430,000 in grants to individual veterans in need with new requests arriving weekly.
