Consider for a moment, What is your freedom worth?
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund was established in 2014 to passionately advocate for our veterans and active-duty servicemen and women. We focus on providing dental services to low income veterans.
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund was developed by veterans for veterans. In the few years of it's exsistence they have been able to bring together community leaders, business leaders and the private sector to help our very deserving servicemen and women with their dental needs.
Did you know, our servicemen and women are among the most overlooked and politically under-represented members of our global family. All gave some, some gave all. Your freedom comes with a heavy price tag. Find out how you can contribute to the care of our veterans through donations of money and/or time.

Our mission at the Sunshine State Veterans Fund is to mobilize community support to provide essential services, and quality of life support, which are not provided in any other way to our military veterans. We accomplish this by bringing together public and private resources to provide services and support to veterans of the United States Military.
Who We Help
Did you know, Florida has in excess of 1.6 million US Veterans?
This is the third largest veteran population in the nation behind California and Texas, according to the US census bureau.
Over 1 million of those veterans reside in Central and Northern Florida.
In addtion, Florida has the largest population of WWII veterans (>164,000).
75% of Florida veterans served during periods of conflict and nearly 250,000 Florida vets are disabled.
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund is committed to changing the lives of these men and women who have served bravely in the US Military.
We provide life enrichment services for those men and women who live at the Robert H. Jenkins VA Domicile in Lake City Florida, as well as provide much needed dental services to Military Veterans in areas around Central and Northern Florida.
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund is committed to expanding our services through out Florida but we need YOUR HELP!
Our Exisiting Programs
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund is reaching out through affiliated partners such as Langley Health Services & Palms Medical Group, to provide cost matching dental work to veterans. Did you know that unless you are 100% disabled as a veteran you do not receive ANY Dental benefits?
Robert H. Jenkins VA Domicile, Lake City FLorida
The Sunshine State Veterans Fund works closely with the Robert H. Jenkins Domicile in Lake City, Florida to offer much needed supplies to help enrich these veterans lives.
The veterans living at the Robert H Jenkins Domicile rely on a monthly budget of $137 to meet all their needs outside of meals, medical and living space. Remember unless you are a 100% diabled veteran Dental care is not covered. This means that dental care and all personal items for warmth, hygiene and general quality of life need to fit within that $137/mo budget. Think about that for a moment, these veterans are expected to have a good quality of life on a mere $137.00/mo, Could you? DONATE NOW
Throughout the year we help to provide (7) made from scratch holiday meals, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Christmas Party, Super Bowl party, and Halloween for the residents at the Robert H. Jenkins Domicle,
For many residents who are on medications that increase the risk of dehydration, this cart is an enormous help. It augments drinks at meals and enables veterans to have hydration opportunities as needed, rather than it being budget-driven.
Holiday Adopt a Vet
Several times throughout the year, in addition to our Holiday meals, we schedule special events and gatherings for the veterans at the Domicile. This is a huge quality of life enrichment for them.
During the Christmas season, gift cards in $10 denominations are purchased from local businesses to provide some holiday cheer to the vets. The gift cards are for restaurants, groceries and other household goods.
