Operation First Response is a vehicle for a proud America.
We could not serve our wounded Heroes and their families without your support!
Did you know that less than 10% of all donations go to administration costs? It’s true. We pass over 90% of all donated funds directly onto the soldiers who need it most! To understand where dollars from the OFR General Fund are applied, please visit Our Mission page.

If you have owned corporate stock for at least 12 months, you may donate this stock to Operation First Response and help benefit the wounded veterans who need help. With this donation, the IRS will allow you to deduct its full market value without paying any tax on the long-term capital gain. This benefits both you and Operation First Response: You get an added tax deduction and Operation First Response gets a larger gift than if you had sold the stock, paid tax on the gains, and donated the remainder to us. But always consult with your tax or finance professional first. Click here to learn more about this donation option.
