Our Promise

With a streamlined operation and dedicated volunteer staff, our foundation strives to keep operational expenses to a minimum so that we can effectively deliver resources and results.

Personal stories

We want to make sure those who have served and those currently serving and their families are not a faceless crowd. Behind every person is a life story that has touched us and made us want to help. We ask you to inquire about our heroes, their lives, their stories and to share the good and bad times with them.

Programs

The Kniestedt Foundation is developing programs ranging from medical assistance, quality of living and education to activities helping our heroes enjoy their life to its fullest.
Our primary programs cover our veterans and active duty service men and women, along with their parents and close family members.

LET’S ALL WORK TOGETHER

Our nation’s heroes and their families have sacrificed so much and we are committed to serving them.
