Since the inception of our GovX Gives Back efforts in 2015, GovX has proudly supported several amazing causes over the years through a variety of means. We’ve now reached an incredible milestone—providing over $500,000 worth of fundraising and donations to causes supporting military, first responder, and law enforcement nonprofits across the nation. With the conclusion of 2020’s efforts, our total lifetime fundraising has now reached $565,000. And we couldn’t have done it without you.
As the GovX community has grown to over 4.5 million members, so has your generosity. In total, GovX members have purchased over 30,000 Patches of the Month. That directly translates to donations to causes serving American heroes and their families around the nation.
Your generosity is making a REAL, IMPACTFUL DIFFERENCE for these nonprofits and the individuals they serve. You helped Team Rubicon respond to disaster zones around the country. Even amidst a pandemic, their Greyshirt volunteers are helping Americans rebuild after hurricanes, floods, and more disasters. In September, GovX members supported Firefighter Aid, helping us donate a record $13,000 to their efforts to champion causes of firefighter health and safety. These missions rely on individual donations to survive, and they thrive and grow because of your efforts.
Here’s every patch we sold in 2020 and the causes they supported. (We would’ve loved to do all 12, but COVID-19 got in the way!)

Here’s what our team leader, Alan Cole had to say about the new record: “In a year as tough as 2020, it was vital to maintain our steadfast support for the organizations that care for the GovX community. Servicemembers, first responders, and law enforcement pros continue to go above and beyond to keep our country and communities safe, which is why backing these nonprofits is more important than ever. I want to thank each member who participated in GovX Gives Back last year by buying the Patch of the Month to help support these causes.”
GovX was also proud to provide additional support to local foundations in the company’s hometown of San Diego. GovX donated to Veterans Village of San Diego to aid in their mission to overcome veteran homelessness, The Rosie Network which empowers veteran small business ventures, and the San Diego Police Department Academy’s mission to train tomorrow’s law enforcement pros.
In 2021, our goal is to continue to grow this remarkable number. You can get the January Patch of the Month right here, which supports the Green Beret Foundation, and be on the lookout for February’s patch to arrive soon. Keep growing your collection, keep supporting amazing causes, and keep being awesome.
