The Elizabeth Dole Foundation empowers and honors the 5.5 million military caregivers, including spouses, parents, and friends, who care for wounded veterans. Founded in 2012 by Senator Elizabeth Dole, the organization collaborates across sectors to recognize caregivers’ service and promote their well-being.

The mission of EDF is to strengthen, empower, and support America’s military and veteran caregivers and their families by raising public awareness, driving research, championing policy, and leading collaborations that make a significant impact on their lives.

National Park Trust partners with EDF to engage military families in the Washington DC metro area, connecting them with local national parks and highlighting the benefits of outdoor recreation.
