Fiscal Sponsor Information and Direct Donation Link
Thank you, to all who have graciously and generously donated to our fundraising campaign. Through our fundraising campaignn, we were successful in raising nearly $7,000, which covered the costs associated with hosting an event on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Our expenses specifically included: portable restrooms, First Aid Station/EMT, portable power generator, professional PA sound system with engineer, two-way radios for event staff, folding chairs for attendees, and more.
It has been our intention from the beginning that the only costs associated with this event for the Veterans and their family members be limited to their travel, meals, and overnight accommodations. There is absolutely no obligation for Veterans or their family members to personally contribute or donate to this cause.
In order to cover the projected costs and using the 501(c)3 status of a fiscal sponsor, we launched a GoFundMe public crowdfunding campaign, applied for foundation grants through several private organizations, utilized community-based fundraising events, sold official event T-shirts and patches. Absolutely 100% of all donations received are being used to host this event.
