Does your campus need a dedicated place where student veterans can socialize, study and connect? Do you have space on campus for a veteran center, but no furniture? Have you always wanted a veteran center on campus, but lack the resources to build one? If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you’re in the right place!



Since 2014, the SVA Vet Center Initiative has built and improved veteran spaces on 61 campuses impacting over 30,000. Recognizing the successes of the last two years, The Home Depot Foundation continues its commitment to student veterans by offering a total of $400,000 to 50 deserving SVA chapters!
