All proceeds from Tailgate for the Troops helps support the Nine Line Foundation and its initiative to construct a Veterans Village in Savannah, Georgia. We have partnered with the Chatham Homeless Authority to take on Phase 1 of their Cove at Dundee Project. This community of 24 homes will provide temporary housing to homeless veterans in the area. The community will include a community center and a self-sustaining hydroponics / aquaponics centers, which, in partnership with Georgia Southern University’s FORAM Sustainable Aquaponics Research Center, will train these veterans how to be self-sustaining through farming while also receiving educational ceritification. Nine Line Foundation is also partnering with other nonprofit organizations to provide food, clothing, and counseling to the veterans who participate in the program. The goal of this initiative is to turn the lives of these veterans around, both immediately and for the long term. This initiative goes beyond providing a roof over the heads of veterans, it will provide them with the skills necessary to reintegrate into society, and to learn and grow as individuals. Simply put, this initiative is about providing healing and support to those who have given so much to this great country.
The mission of Tailgate for Troops, Inc. is to increase the morale and welfare of active duty service members and veterans through hosting tailgate parties at collegiate and professional sporting events, free of charge. Tailgate for Troops will also, from time to time, distribute donated funds to organizations qualifying under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, which provide notable services to active duty service members and/or veterans.
As the United States has been at war for 15 years, a generation of America’s sons and daughters has endured the trials and tribulations of combat. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Cost Guardsmen have spent years away from their families and friends, toiled through hot Iraqi summers and cold Afghan winters, and have, in some cases, selflessly given up their limbs and lives to ensure the American Citizens’ security. The goal of our organization is to honor the service and sacrifices of our American Heroes by offering our sincerest thanks in the form of food and beverage - at no cost to the Service Members - at a variety of collegiate and professional sporting events, while they enjoy the freedoms for which they have fought so hard.
Tailgate for Troops was founded by a group Americans who have served and supported military causes and who now seek to serve the nation by tailgating for the Troops and advancing the principles of pre-game philanthropy.
