Frequently Asked Questions:
Become a driver:
We wanted to make a unique experience for car enthusiasts and veterans alike. Becoming a driver means making a donation to our cause and making a big difference in a veteran’s life. It also means you’re now entered into one of our rallyes! It’s you, your car, and the navigator working together to complete the rallye. Oh, and we throw in some pretty cool merchandise packages as well. Rallye participant size is limited so don’t delay. Check the tires, check the fuel, it’s time to Rallye! Become a Driver here.
There are a few options when it comes to donating to Rallye For Vets. Donating is the fastest and simplest of ways. No donation is too small or too big. Every little bit ensures we can continue to deliver on our mission of helping our veterans stay in their homes. Donate Now!
You can make recurring donations. The stability that comes from recurring donations ensures we’re able to sustain our program through periods when one-time donations aren’t as frequent.
Buy Rallye for Vets Merchandise:
Rallye For Vets shirts, challenge coins, and other swag have received high praise. Our shirts are made, printed, and manufactured right here in Virginia, and they look amazing!
We need volunteers for day-to-day operations, support during rallye events, and with business matters to ensure our sustainable delivery of funding to keep veterans in their homes, and help pay outstanding medical bills. Volunteers are a cornerstone of our success, we cannot do it without YOU! Contact us for more information.
Just like our 1-4 star system for Drivers, we created a 1-4 star system for corporations. The larger the donation amount, the higher your rank and perks that come with supporting our mission. Corporate sponsorship includes, but is not limited to: Exclusive seating at our annual gala, corporate logo displays at rallye events, special access to drivers/navigators, and so much more. If you’re interested in becoming a corporate sponsor contact us today.
Please fill out our Relief Form. You don’t have to be a service-connected vet or have participated in a rallye to have Rallye For Vets pay medical or mortgage expenses on your behalf.
An “older” car of significant historical interest; one dated 1979 or older. One that is generally viewed as being worth “saving” or “restoring” rather than discarding.
Nope. Rallye for Vets was founded by a guy with a ‘67 Shelby Cobra, but a car enthusiast nonetheless. In order to offer a better experience we have limited the early rallyes, but have every intention of “opening the field”, offering manufacturer specific rallyes, local car club rallyes, a dream car series, etc.
Rallye Days are going to be about 5 hours. The actual driving of the rallye is just over 1hr, but between registration, introductions, departure of ~40 cars, the winner’s circle, and after rallye events you have plenty of time to tell military stories or car adventures. Remember, after rallye events conclude at a place where you can typically eat, hangout, and have fun. You can leave at any time following your arrival. This could reduce your day to ~3 hours.
Driver designations are directly tied to donation amounts. Drivers register for rallyes by paying a “fee” in the form of a donation. Donation amounts equate to driver “tiers” and the subsequent driver and/or navigator merchandise packages.
To have some fun, we tied the driver tiers to General ranks. 1 – 4 star designations with the 5 star being reserved for the one driver who donates the most to enter the rallye.
Companies that donate in exchange for advertising and special access at rallyes. Companies also receive ad space on our website and newsletter, as well as recognition on social media. Much like the driver designations, corporate donations are tiered. Become Corporate Donor

Great question! Rallye for Vets is dedicated to helping veterans in need pay medical and mortgage expenses. We believe these two expenses can put anyone at risk of losing their home, but especially our veterans. Our goal is to step in and offer direct financial relief to ensure unexpected life events don’t cost our veterans their homes.
