HAVA is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2007 by a group of executives from the hunting and shooting industry to help disabled veterans and injured active-duty military returning from war heal, and reintegrate back into everyday life through participation in outdoor activities. HAVA sponsors guided hunts, shooting events, and outdoor activities across the country hosting hundreds of veterans annually.
SIG SAUER is a longstanding supporter of the HAVA organization. This donation is intended to sustain and expand HAVA’s programs to provide disabled veterans and wounded active military personnel transition to their lives back in the United States.
