$10,000 Goal


Your support of the Magnus Veterans Foundation (MVF) during Give to the Max Day will help launch a "first-of-its-kind"  facility right here in Minnesota!

The Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus will provide medical, physical, psychological, social and spiritual experts who are devoted to optimizing the health and performance of Veterans and their families.

Our nation has been at war for over 19 continuous years. We have thousands of returning warriors who need our help. There's a huge disconnect between the realities of our nation's heroes and the preparedness of our society to meet their needs. Our mission is to heal and honor our veterans and their families through community fellowship and a comprehensive approach to restoring the mind, body, heart, and spirit.

MVF is the brainstorm of LTC (Retired) Shawn M. Alderman, MD.  Shawn served as the Group Surgeon for the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), the unit responsible for all Special Operations in the Middle East.  As the group surgeon, he organized a multi-disciplinary team to address the physical, spiritual, social, and psychological needs of special operators and their families.  He created a facility that housed all of these experts in one place, essentially establishing a one-stop-shop for comprehensive health and performance for Special Forces Soldiers and their families.  

 This model has been validated by our active duty military. Minnesota Veterans and their families will be the first in the nation to receive this level of care outside of active duty special operations. Thanks to the generous donation of a $4M estate in Dayton, MN , the Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus will become a reality.

The Magnus Veterans Foundation has an opportunity for a matching gift.  A donor will match contributions up to $10,000 during Give to the Max 2020 in honor of our past Veterans who've made the ultimate sacrifice. Your gift of $50, $100 or more, given through November 19th, will be doubled and used to refurbish the estate so we can fully heal, honor and restore our amazing Veterans in their return to civilian life.

Please honor or memorialize your loved one(s) with your most generous gift. Together, we will  restore our Warriors and close the gap between those who go to war and those who send them.

Thank you on behalf of our Veterans and their families!
