NTC is a proud supporter of this 501c3 organization that builds homes for combat wounded veterans.
This will be the second year that NTC supports the Gramatica Family Foundation and we are really proud to do so. The family-friendly kickball tournament this Saturday October 21 features dozens of teams who compete to raise money for this very important cause.
The mission of the foundation is to provide mortgage-free, energy-efficient homes to combat wounded veterans, helping assist in their transition from the battlefront to the home front.
The Gramatica Family Foundation was founded by three professional football star brothers, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Superbowl winner Martin Gramatica who is pictured above with NTC's kickball team in 2016.
More about the Gramatica Family Foundation
Thirteen years of war have tragically filled a pipeline of wounded and disabled veterans and their families, overwhelming existing service and support systems. Thanks to miraculous advances in medical care and treatment, many more veterans are returning home but with physical and emotional scars that make returning to civilian life and family difficult, if not impossible, without an array of support services. Governmental assistance departments are overwhelmed, and honestly, unequipped to assist with the various forms of support needed by returning veterans.
Founded in 2012, the Gramatica Family Foundation, to date, has completed six homes for combat-wounded veterans, including several through partnerships with other organizations. In 2016, the foundation completed all the fundraising and donor support requests in order to build a home solely on their own. Although a young organization as far as nonprofits go, the foundation has quickly gained support and recognition in the Tampa Bay area. It is the ultimate goal of the Gramatica Family Foundation to raise the funds needed to build two to three homes per year. Through organizations like ours, a basic need such as adequate housing can be met for our country’s heroes, allowing them to heal physically, mentally, and emotionally from their life-altering battle scars.
