Currently Veterans for Trump AKA Veterans for America First is building state chapters throughout the nation to better have boots on the ground and influence local politics to help America First candidates take office. The mission is saving America and that takes funding.
Veterans for Trump is part of the Trump 2024 campaign coalition and the optics needed to help support the presidential primary are very time consuming for leadership but that noted the organization has launched state chapters in Georgia, Florida, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Veterans for Trump main site, and the organizations forming as state chapters, are political grassroots activism based with private ownership.
State Chapters are not part of a nonprofit or political action committee and to date most are LLC’s which frees up the state presidents to make endorsements of whomever they chose, monetize the brand to support the movement, etc.
The websites offer donate / support buttons that route to whatever business account the owner wants them connected to. These buttons have a clear disclaimer on where they go and whether they are tax deductible or not. The organization has written legal opinion that those chapters are operating within the law.
