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.
Based on early estimates, we are approaching an event cost of $40,000, or more. In order to cover the projected costs and using the 501(c)3 status of a fiscal sponsor, we have launched a GoFundMe public crowdfunding campaign, have applied for foundation grants through several private organizations, and are introducing the concept of community-based fundraising events. Absolutely 100% of all donations received will be used to host this event.
