Leading with Integrity

Our CEO, Sarah Verardo, was appointed in 2017. Under her leadership, The Independence Fund has been a stalwart in financial stewardship, donor integrity, and transparency.

As a Caregiver to her husband, a catastrophically wounded Veteran, Sarah knows firsthand the challenges faced by Veterans and their loved ones and strives to lead the organization with the compassion, care, and sense of empowerment this community of heroes deserves.
