A donation is a gift for charitable purpose or for the benefit for a particular cause. It is gift given by one's own freewill. Donation can include different kinds such as cash, goods including vehicles, clothing etc. and also services. It may comprise of humanitarian aid, development aid or medical or of relief or emergency. Donations are given through organization and of the various organizations; one of them is the veteran organization through which donations are done for the veterans.

Veterans are those who serve or work in a particular field for a long time. They are mainly those who people who serve in the military. Since they are subject to illness during service, they need medical aid and these various aid or donation also extends to war veterans who made a great sacrifice for their country by putting their lives in line and by doing so some of them became handicap for life time. So donations are needed for such people.

There are various organizations in the world through which donations are done. One such important organization is the World Veteran Federation which is established in France in 1950 and founded by veteran organization from eight countries; Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Turkey, U.S.A and Yugoslavia. They are nonprofit, non-government and free from government and politics. Also there are various such organizations in some countries like American legion, in America.

The Royal British Legion, U.K, Georgian Veteran federation, Royal New Zealand Returned and Services associations, Returned and Service League of Australia, Veterans of Canada, South African Military Veterans Organization of Australasia.

The above mention organizations provide financial, social services to the veterans. Some of them help in their rehabilitation and starting of new life for those retired. The donations are mainly use for the welfare of the veterans. These organizations also fight for the compensation of the victims in a war. Such are their functions that the donations we donate to these organizations are of great benefits for veterans.

But there are some instances where the veteran organization does not spent all the donations. Mention may be made of some instances where all donations received are not spent. Survey Scripps Treasure Coast Newspaper about the 121 organization Across United States registered with Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services plan to raise money reported that money raised in Florida for veterans or military related charities show that out of dollar 472 million collected, only dollar 439 million was spent. Also Allied Veterans collected dollar 402,042 in 2008 but spent only dollar 2,700 on the program for veterans. It spent dollar 456,295 for administrative purpose and a deficit of dollar 55,953 occurred that year.

Although, donating to veteran organization is good and beneficial for those veterans, one must be careful in choosing which veteran organization to donate. One must see the recent activity of the particular organization before donating. If done without proper observation, the donations we gave might not reach the place where it's meant to be.
