MMSF Mission

Our mission is to provide programs, services and goods that help satisfy critical needs and enhance the well-being and quality of life for Veterans, active-duty Military and their families in Massachusetts.
Each of our programs are designed to have maximum impact on the many issues Veterans and active-duty Military face. We provide solutions that make a long-lasting, life-changing difference for these brave men and women.

MMSF History

Massachusetts Military Support Foundation was founded by President & CEO Don Cox. Don leads a small team of regulars and many volunteers who are committed to helping Veterans and active-duty Military families in need. Many volunteers are Veterans themselves, representing each branch of the United States Military.  Massachusetts Military Support Foundation (MMSF) grew from a successful regional nonprofit on Cape Cod. After seeing the success and importance of our work on Cape Cod, we knew it was imperative to expand our reach to the rest of the Commonwealth. Since then, MMSF has proved essential during the federal government shutdown of 2018-2019, and most recently the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Fishing4Vets will host US Veterans for a wonderful day of competition and camaraderie on Cape Cod Bay. Prizes will be awarded at a Post-Tournament Reception which will be held at a Dinner Venue to be announced where all participants and other guests will come together to brag about “the one that got away.”
