FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
[January 29, 2016] – Boise, ID – Wyakin Warrior Foundation has received several inquiries regarding the recent media coverage involving the Wounded Warrior Project. As a policy, Wyakin Warrior Foundation does not comment on how other organizations function, but to avoid confusion the Board of Directors would like to remind our stakeholders, supporters, and the broader community that Wyakin Warrior Foundation has no association or working relationship with Wounded Warrior Project. While we serve the same community – wounded Veterans – our programs are different.
Our efforts to support wounded warriors continue and it is our hope that as a community and nation we can continue to develop support for all of the important work that is being done to support Veterans.
The Wyakin Warrior Foundation was founded to help enable severely wounded and injured post 9/11 veterans achieve personal and professional success as business and community leaders.
We welcome your questions and would love to provide additional information about our programs, staff and warriors. In the interest of full transparency, complete financial information is available on our website at https://www.wyakin.org.
