Donating to Gameday For Heroes


What does my contribution do?

Gameday For Heroes gives Veterans and Active Duty Military a day away from the job, the home, the problems, and the issues faced on a daily basis by sending them to collegiate sporting events for free.

Our program helps those with PTSD overcome fear of loud noises and crowds by creating a positive atmosphere in an environment many have never experienced before.

This helps families reconnect while sharing a fun day together on a college football Saturday.  

We can show the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country that they are appreciated and honored for their service. 

Your generous donation will help us provide unforgettable Gameday experiences for the heroes who have served our great nation.  Since our founding in 2009, we have sent military and their families to attend college games representing over 50 schools.  Last year alone, we sent over 4,500 heroes to college football games.  Your donation will ensure this program continues to serve our military and expand this unique organization. 

Gameday For Heroes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  

Thank you for your support!

Are my donations Tax Deductible?

Yes - We are a 501C3 Charity and your donations are tax deductible with the IRS

Do I get a Statement?

Yes, we send out donor statements at the end of each year.

What about ticket Donations?

Tickets are tax deductible at their face value.  You can also deduct transfer or mailing costs.

I have Tickets to donate but it is Friday before the game?

We try our best to place the tickets.  It becomes much harder the day before the game.  We cannot guarantee we will place a Hero but will do our best.

How much of a donation do you need to send a Hero Family to a game?

It cost about $20 per Hero.  So to send a family of four we suggest a $80 donation.
