About APK Charities

Our mission is to serve as a bridge connecting our society and our Armed Forces, opening our hearts and minds to serve those who protect us.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization proudly raising funds for our Military through: the APK Endowment Fund with the Madison & Guilford Foundations, Spikes K9 Fund, and the APK Direct Assistance Program that provides direct financial aid and material assistance to active-duty Military, Veterans and their families and Gold Star Families.

APK Charities was created to help us properly honor and remember the life, bravery, and humanitarian spirit of our son, Captain Andrew M. Pedersen-Keel. America’s military, and their families, make enormous sacrifices every day. We seek to raise awareness and support for our active, retired, wounded and fall-en warriors and their families, and to provide financial aid and material assistance to charitable organizations and causes that support Veterans.

APK Direct Assistance Program

The APK Direct Assistance Program (DAP) is designed to provide direct financial and other support services to service members and their families who are in need of emergency or hardship assistance. This means that in addition to supporting military charities, we work with local organizations that support Veterans. Our direct funding helps those who may be slipping through the cracks, or for whom timing is critical.

They stepped up when we needed them. Let’s be there when Veterans need us most.
