WE’VE GOT THEIR 6

In an ever evolving world the Kniestedt Foundation understands the need to diversify our services to ensure we meet the needs of all veterans. With this being said, we are proud to announce our new partnership with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s Lost Treks study abroad program in Peru. The Kniestedt Foundation will be offering their financial assistance to veterans of the United States military that wish to apply to attend this 24 day experience.

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.

Transparency is our number one priority. Our activities target pre-selected veterans and active duty members of the United States Armed Forces.

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.
