The Go Green Warehouse flagship store opened its doors in May 2011 and is a DBA (doing business as) of Veterans Entrepreneurial Trust (a 501(c) 3 tax exempt public charity). Veterans Entrepreneurial Trust's mission is to provide financial capital to nonprofit veteran entrepreneurs working to make a positive impact on their communities.
The Go Green Warehouse is our board and staff's entrepreneurial spirit in action. We ourselves are entrepreneurs and by managing our own nonprofit enterprise we can demonstrate our own expertise and increase our understanding of what it takes for start-up businesses to be successful. The Go Green Warehouse an example of a functioning start-up that makes an impact on our communities. We provide jobs and give hiring preference to veterans who are wounded warriors, long-term unemployed, homeless, and those that have other employment barriers. We also provide a much needed community service by recycling materials that would otherwise go to the landfill. Furthermore, the goal of our store is to generate enough revenue to cover all of Veterans Entrepreneurial Trust’s overhead so that 100% of every donation to the Nonprofit Loan Fund goes to helping other veterans finance their nonprofits.
