2021 VAST Donors

Pineland Farms Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, supports the VAST Program by providing all that Pineland Farms has to offer at no cost to the Veterans. The VAST program is also primarily funded through an annual competitive grant administered by the Veterans Administration. The VA awards grants to qualifying organizations to plan, develop, manage, and implement programs to provide adaptive sports opportunities for disabled Veterans and disabled members of the Armed Forces as authorized under 38 United States Code 521A.

However, we also rely on both monetary and in-kind donations from commercial entities and private individuals when the above funding is not enough. This generosity provides us with staff funding and much needed flexibility in how we run our program. Their generous contributions have helped to make VAST a better program for all of our Veterans.

In recognition of the generous support to the program through monetary and in-kind donations, VAST wishes to thank the following organizations and individuals:
