On Memorial Day, San Diego’s Veterans Medical Research Foundation received a donation of a minimum of $100,000 from WD-40 Company in an effort to support those who serve or have served in the military.
The company has donated 10 cents from the sale of each of four limited edition WD-40 cans, with special artwork depicting service at sea, in air and on land. The money will provide funding for a pilot study aimed at helping the thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with mild to moderate traumatic brain injury succeed in their efforts to go to college.
Veterans Medical Research Foundation funds medical research that treats medical conditions from which many veterans suffer, including post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and others. The foundation does not receive funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs, so the organization relies on non-VA grants and private donations.
