Dear Friends,

Robert and the Robert Irvine Foundation have been extremely busy these last few months traveling across the country and all over the world. I’m truly overwhelmed by your support. So, before I go any further I’d like to say THANK YOU.

One of the first updates you may notice is our new logo! Behind the scenes, Robert and our team have been working on this endeavor for some time. I am excited to finally share it with you all.

The evolution of the Robert Irvine Foundation has been tremendous. In 2014, Robert established the Foundation to provide grants to organizations  supporting our nation’s heroes. Over time, his passion continued to grow. In 2020 the Robert Irvine Foundation began providing support to our heroes directly. Two years later, we revised our mission statement and established new programs under Food, Wellness, Community, and Financial Support.  And now, we’ve elevated our logo and have more brand updates to come.  All of these exciting changes allows us to increase our mission awareness and expand our outreach to support our nation’s heroes and their loved ones.

I am proud to share that the Foundation has reached a FOUR STAR rating on Charity Navigator and a Platinum-Level on GuideStar. These top ratings were awarded for our financial efficiency, sustainability, and commitment to transparency. Robert and I understand that times are tough for many, so for you to choose the Robert Irvine Foundation, to believe in our mission, and trust us – it means the world.

More than that, it’s changing the lives of so many deserving veterans, service members, first responders, and their families. From Robert, the Foundation team, and so many grateful heroes, thank you.


Now, let’s look at our impact!

Through our Financial Support program, we distributed 11 community grants, 4 Relief Fund grants, 1 grant to a Gold Star Family, and provided a Scholarship Grant to ensure educational opportunities for eligible surviving children of fallen Special Ops and children of all Medal of Honor Recipients.
