Grunt Style Launches New Nonprofit To Propel Veterans ‘Forward with a Purpose’
Grunt Style, an apparel brand specializing in patriotic-focused apparel and products, is proud to announce the launch of their new nonprofit, The Grunt Style Foundation. The Grunt Style Foundation is a national nonprofit which aims to connect life-changing resources and experiences that allow Veterans, service members and military families to thrive.

Built on three foundation pillars, ‘Honor, Integrity and Advocacy,’ the Grunt Style Foundation is completely self-funded and will focus on connecting services and organizations that address four major issues affecting the military and Veteran community: Mental Health and Wellness, Job Transition and Sustainment, Food Insecurity and Veteran Homelessness.

Throughout the years, the Grunt Style brand has actively produced various philanthropic initiatives benefiting our military community. It was through our experience that we realized there was a strong demand to address the ongoing needs of our service members. We had to think bigger! The ultimate goal of our new Foundation is to bridge the gap by supporting our partners in connecting military members, veterans and their families to the resources available to them, in order to ensure social inequities are no longer an issue.”

Tim Jensen, President of The Grunt Style Foundation
