Supporting Military Families
The Heart of America Patriot Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Kansas City, providing scholarships to the dependents of deceased or 100% disabled veterans by partnering with post-secondary education institutions that match its funds. Scholarships support the Dept. of Veterans Affairs Survivors' and Dependents' Educational  Assistance (DEA) qualified students enrolled part- or full-time who demonstrate unmet financial need. By providing the opportunity to attain a college education debt-free, HOAPF offers more than words of thanks to military families who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. They offer hope.
