Our mission is to serve the community of veterans, servicemembers, and supporters in our Nation’s Capitol with opportunity, mentorship, housing, peer support, and training in their pursuit of continued service in government.
The HillVets 100 Gala is the premier black-tie event for the veteran and military community, honoring the most influential and impactful veterans, servicemembers, and supporters from the previous year. The honorees represent a broad spectrum of distinguished individuals and groups, including artists, elected officials, business executives, athletes, and service organizations, among others. The HillVets 100 – both the list and the recognition event – represent the best of the best within the veteran community, both in Washington, DC, and across the country.
The proceeds from the HillVets 100 Gala go directly towards our HillVets House Fellowship and HillVets LEAD programs, both of which provide participants with fellowship, leadership training, mentorship, and a variety of other resources and opportunities that enable positive career progression. These programs open doors for individuals who wish to continue their service to the country by making a positive impact in governance, international affairs, policy, and politics.
