In a way, the Veterans Family Fund of America owes its origin to the Golden Rule—do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. It emerged as an expression of the values of a family in the 1950s who raised their daughter to ask herself every day what she could do for someone else. Read more.

Who’s on first?
Before the Veterans Family Fund™ CD could be offered to the public, it needed to be tested. In September, Jane Jacobsen became the first person to invest in a VFF CD, and thus the first contributor to the Veterans Family Fund of America. She purchased the CD at Bank of Clark County in downtown Vancouver, the first financial institution to make the account available. The bank’s CEO, Mike Worthy, has taken the lead in getting the financial community and regulators onboard. “It has amazed me to watch this program take off, thanks to the work of some truly dedicated people,” Jane said. “I was thrilled to be able to buy my CD, knowing it would be helping such an important cause.”
$1,000,000 and counting!
Investors have purchased more than $1,000,000 in VFF-CDs and even with interest rates so low, this provides an important on-going source of revenue for the program. Remember, you can purchase a Veterans Family Fund CD from any participating financial institution shown on this website, even if you don’t have an account there.
