Help Support GI’s Mission By Becoming A GI Ambassador

The GI Ambassador Program provides a grateful citizen, local business owner, or business professional an easy and tangible way to show their gratitude to our military and veteran families living in their local community and around the world. 

When you sponsor a student in the GI College Success Academy for $1800, your tax-deductible donation provides up to nine years of service to the student and their parents starting as early as the 8th grade with support until the student graduates college. Your donation can be made in convenient recurring payments or a one-time gift.

There are several categories for sponsorship.  You have the opportunity to sponsor a student…

      • From GI’s waiting list of military and veteran families;
      • You know personally that qualifies for GI’s program;
      • Whose parent was wounded, disabled, or killed while serving in the military.
      • With a parent currently serving in one of our military’s special operations units.

In Addition To The Satisfaction Of Helping Change The Life Of A Child, A GI Ambassador Will Receive…

  • A certificate of appreciation to proudly display your support for our nation’s heroes and their children.
  • Sponsor decals for your vehicle and business.
  • Digital sponsor logos for your email, website, social media showing your support and to help create engagement with your customers and network.
  • Access to additional information and opportunities for Ambassadors desiring to do more.

“When our oldest son joined GI, we knew nothing about the FAFSA, how to apply for scholarships, college applications, essay writing, etc. The GI Advisors immediately stepped in and made sense of all these things— a huge stress relief!”
