Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to provide mobility devices to mainly veterans and first responders who have physical impairments. We work with our recipients to provide the devices that they need whether it is a vehicle, lift system, seat transfer system, or motorized wheelchair. We also adapt the vehicles' controls to the recipient with specific hand controls as needed.

We have used a variety of fundraising strategies including direct emails to potential donors, golf tournaments, and social media fundraising via Facebook. Our strategy is fairly simple: we find the recipient to help and then fundraise for the specific recipient with the dollar goal in mind that will fund his device or devices.

Our Board Members actively reach out to potential donors and/or work on events like golf tournaments and the recent ESPN Bowl Games. We presented devices to veterans and first responders at the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, ServPro First Responder Bowl, and Tax Act Texas Bowl. We also ask for our recipients to work with their networks to help us fundraise. For example, we are fundraising now for a first responder. Besides working with our potential donors, we have asked the recipient to forward our fundraising email throughout his circle of first responders and friends as well as with his work contacts.

We have been awarded a Nonprofit Partner status with Carry the Load for 2022 and we will be working on their Memorial May Campaign 2022 which will also provide funding benefits our foundation.

We have been raising funds for our various recipients and are working to increase our social media presence. Our being awarded a Nonprofit Partner Status with Carry the Load will help us increase awareness of our foundation.

This year we will have two golf tournaments; one in San Antonio in April and one in the DFW area in November. Last year we just had one tournament in the DFW area. We will continue to work with ESPN to present devices at the Bowl games next winter.

We have been asked to help USAA and Caliber Collision to provide adapted vehicles to physically impaired recipients. We expect to be a part of at least 3 vehicles to be presented in June for USAA's 100th Anniversary.
