Project Dynamo Assistance Operation

Veteran-led, Donor-funded

International search, rescue, aid and assistance 501(c)(3) non-profit organization

Based in Tampa, Florida, Project DYNAMO is a veteran-led, donor-funded organization on a mission to deliver hope and safety in the chaos of war and conflict zones where the U.S. government does not have a presence.
Project DYNAMO launched in the wake of the U.S. pulling out of Afghanistan, leaving behind not just American citizens but countless allies in dire straits.
Fast forward two years, and the story’s much the same, only the locations have changed – Ukraine, Sudan, the ravages of Hurricane Ian, the fires in Maui, the unrest in Haiti – you name it, we’ve been there.
To date, nearly 7,000 men, women, children, and yes, even their beloved pets – have been pulled from the brink by Project DYNAMO. That’s 7,000 stories of hope, all lives given another shot, all because we step in where others can’t or won’t.
We’re the ones working in “The Grey Space,” when the government is unable or unwilling to provide assistance. We’re about action, about making the impossible happen, because at the end of the day, it’s not just about the rescues; it’s about humanity.

Meet the Team & Volunteers

The rescues are conducted by combat veterans from the most elite units and agencies within the U.S. intelligence and special operations communities. Behind the scenes, the rescues are enabled by teams of case managers working throughout the United States.

The DYNAMO operations team conducts rescues, boots on ground, operating deep behind enemy lines, in the war-zones, and in countries with no U.S. military or diplomatic presence. The case managers are the backbone of Project DYNAMO working with the friends and families of those trapped behind enemy lines. DYNAMO conducts intelligence lead rescue operations using tradecraft, technology, artificial intelligence, and deep understanding of the enemy and culture.
