Making a Difference for Military Families

These financial tools have a positive impact on the financial wellness, mental health, and readiness of military families, particularly those with lower income.

That’s why we established the GoVA Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to improve the military community’s access to financial tools. All donations to the GoVA Foundation go directly into the scholarship program, which provides free membership to The Edge.
