Our Veterans Need Your Help!

Our veterans and their families need your help now more than ever. Following nearly two decades of sustained combat and our recent withdrawal from Afghanistan, our nation is seeing a veteran suicide rate exceeding 22 veterans a day.

Please help our veterans with a gift to the Magnus Veterans Foundation's "Sponsor a Veteran" program.

Your gift will be life-changing as it will provide the urgently needed funds to cover the costs of the comprehensive specialized health care that our veterans need and deserve.

I established the Magnus Veterans Foundation (MVF) to fully heal our veterans and their families. The MVF practice is modeled after a validated program that previously was only available to our active duty Special Forces. Minnesota Veterans and their families are the first to receive this level of care outside of the Special Forces.

A testimonial from one of our members:  "My name is Corporal Andrew Davison and I served in the United States Marine Corps from 2006-2011. I served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I was honorable/medically discharged in 2011. When I heard about MVF, I went to the open house and spoke with the care staff. From the time I got there, the staff treated me like family. As I got know them, they listened and didn't pass judgement. Unlike other veteran organizations, I personally feel more comfortable and confident that I'll get the help I need at Magnus, a place I can finally call home! " 

MVF  established the Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus (MVWC) in Dayton, MN. Thanks to the generosity of so many, we opened our doors on June 1,2021, four months ahead of schedule.  As of October 15, 2021, the MVWC has onboarded 154 veterans and family members (spouses, children, and parents).

Unfortunately, the VA only covers VA rated disabilities and does not provide coverage for family members. Those of us who have served know that our families serve just as hard as we do. When a Soldier is injured or ill, the entire family suffers, not just the Soldier. Therefore, families of veterans are offered the same level of care and compassion at the MVWC.

With your help we can provide this specialized health care to more veterans! Our services are 100% free to our veterans and family members and completely covered by donations. Our services include access to medical, physical, spiritual, social and psychological professionals along with access to our beautiful 37-acre waterfront estate.

Our veterans and their families made huge sacrifices to serve our country. Please show how grateful you are for their service and sacrifices with your most generous gift to our "Sponsor a Veteran" Program. Your gift of $50 will provide health care for a veteran for a month, $600 for a year, or any amount you donate will make a huge difference. One hundred percent of donations go to providing care for our veterans and is 100% percent tax-deductible to the full extend of the law. 

On behalf of our veterans and their families, THANK YOU for your caring and support!
