Savannah Carnaval is SD Gunner Fund’s largest annual fundraising event. 100% of the money raised during the event is donated to the foundation to help support veterans, exceptional children, first responders and their families both financially and through the training and placement of much needed service and therapy dogs. In 2019, SD Gunner Fund reinvested over $40,000 into the local community it serves. This year, SD Gunner Fund is committed to support 10 local families, more than tripling the outreach from the previous year.
Founded in 2015, SD Gunner Fund is a registered 501c3 organization which proudly serves veterans, exceptional children, first responders, and their families in the Southeast region of the United States.

Britnee Kinard founded the SD Gunner Fund in 2014, inspired by her husband — a wounded veteran — and her two children. The local nonprofit, based in Richmond Hill, Georgia, works to provide service-animal assistance to veterans and disabled children by mediating costs and arranging accommodations. Passionate about helping others live their lives to the fullest, Kinard works tirelessly as a caregiver and philanthropist to improve her local community and raise international awareness about the benefits of service animals. More recently, Kinard stepped up during the COVID-19 outbreak and has been supporting local businesses and providing safe and quality meals to first responders through Operation Restaurants and Responders (R&R).
