Fuel the Fire

Help us raise $15,000 during the month of November!

Forged in Service, Fueled by Education

When metal is placed onto hot coals, it becomes malleable. A blacksmith pulls the red-hot piece of the coals and uses the necessary tools to forge the material. When someone decides to serve our nation, they undergo a similar process. They enter the military as rough, raw, and sometimes idle members of society. Day-to-day, they are hammered on, tested, and pushed to their limits. They are shaped into useful tools and hardened by their experiences. The result is a valuable, sharpened, newly appointed member of the world’s finest military.

They all eventually leave the military and go on different paths. At Warrior-Scholar Project, we help them on their path to higher education. Some come to us fearful; some have doubts, and others are confident. As forged members of society, they took the discipline hammered into them, the knowledge they acquired, and the work ethic ingrained in them and apply it towards the next chapter of their lives. This newfound passion for pursuing higher education fuels their continuing desire to succeed.

You can help fuel their fire by donating to our November giving campaign. Our goal is to raise $15,000 in November to support the incredible veterans we’re privileged to serve. View all the different ways to give this November below!

Join Us For Trivia Night

Last year, we had an idea. What if, we thought, we channeled our love of trivia into some type of casual and enjoyable way to raise funds in November to support warrior-scholars? Kai Ryssdal of American Public Media responded almost immediately to the request, leading to a memorable inaugural event, including question answering, prize winning, and smack talking.

On November 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET CNN’s Jake Tapper will make a special guest appearance for our second annual virtual trivia event. Registration is now open, and the first four teams to sign up will receive a box of delicious snacks courtesy of Snack Magic. Don’t miss out on the chance to win some sweet prizes.

You can sign up as an individual or as a team at this link – with snacks on the line, the sooner, the better!

New York Islanders Military Appreciation Night

We’ve got two incredible opportunities for our WSP alums and their friends to support WSP on Military Appreciation Night while having a blast! Join us at the New York Islanders vs Washington Capitals hockey game on November 11, 2023.

If you are ready to make a difference, we are looking for awesome volunteers to help us sell raffle tickets at the game. By volunteering, you’ll not only support WSP, but also get to enjoy the game once the raffle closes. No ticket is needed, plus a parking pass is included!

Interested? Fill out this form, and someone will reach out to you with more details!

We’ve got you covered if you’re eager to cheer on the Islanders and enjoy the entire game. Grab your tickets now through this link, and a portion of the sales will go directly back to WSP, making a positive impact all around! Let’s come together and make this an unforgettable experience while supporting a great cause. See you there!
