Support Veterans and Military Spouses

Commit to Impact

Between Veterans Day and Dec. 31, commit to impact with us: make a tax-deductible gift to the Pat Tillman Foundation and help fund the Tillman Scholars, remarkable veterans and military spouses, as they change the world. Starting on Giving Tuesday, double your impact: TEKsystems and an anonymous benefactor are matching donations up to $42,000. 

Our goal at PTF is to develop our remarkable scholars as the next generation of leaders, dedicated to making an impact in their communities and on a global scale. Our scholars take this to heart: When the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan, they led fellow veterans and citizens to support, evacuate, and resettle our Afghan allies. They found nonprofits, like Action Tank, to enable opportunities for veterans to serve in their own communities. They follow their passions, and they lead through action to make a difference.

Make It Monthly with Team 226

Pat Tillman consistently proved throughout his lifetime that he could outperform anyone’s expectations for him — and he showed it when he went from being drafted 226th in 1998 to becoming the Arizona Cardinal’s starting safety. That spirit and tenacity is why we’ve created Team 226, a monthly membership program that sustains our foundation and our Tillman Scholars program throughout the year and brings our most committed supporters deeper into our community.

When you join Team 226, you’ll also enjoy the following perks, dependent on your giving level:

  • $10 and up: $10 coupon to the PTF Store
  • $25 and up: $10 coupon to the PTF Store and a limited edition Team 226 t-shirt
  • $40 and up:  $10 coupon to the PTF Store, a limited edition Team 226 t-shirt, and a limited edition Team 226 pint glass
  • $100 and up: all other benefits, plus experiences like the Tillman Honors livestream and early access to new items in the PTF Shop
