The Fun For Troops Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing disabled military veterans, wounded warriors, and retired service members who have recently returned from a tour of duty and their families with the opportunity to experience top recreational and educational destinations at minimal cost. Fun For Troops also helps to provide these experiences to the immediate families of service members killed in action as well as all active duty military and honorably discharged veterans.
Why We Do This
Members of the military and their family members often spend an unimaginable amount of time away from each other. This means that time together drastically increases in significance. A weekend visit to a national park, zoo or theme park for a civilian is something often taken for granted. For a service member this could be a final opportunity to bond with loved ones before a year-long tour of duty or a way to celebrate after being away for many months. Positive social interactions and experiences are also critical ways for service members to adapt back into everyday society.
Fun For Troops partners with local military organizations and community groups, as well as receiving direct nominations to distribute tickets. These experiences are funded by generous individuals and enables our military service members, veterans and their families to enjoy the top recreational and educational destinations in the United States.
Some favorite destinations include: National and State Parks, Zoos, Museums, Historical Centers and Theme Parks like Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott's Berry Farm, King's Dominion and many others.
Use our nomination form to submit a service member or family for consideration. While we consider all requests are considered, priority consideration is given to wounded warriors, disabled veterans, families of those killed in action or anyone who demonstrates outstanding hardship or need.
Current Deals & Offers
While we strive to help as many military servicemembers and retired veterans as possible, we encourage those who are financially capable to purchase tickets from their desired destination which may offer a military discount. Many discounts are available and occasionally some destinations offer free tickets to servicemembers and their families.
Many zoos and aquariums offer discounted tickets to active duty military. Discounted tickets for retired military veterans are harder to find. Some of the best deals are at the San Diego Zoo, Los Angeles Zoo and the Georgia Aquarium.
