Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to address two issues: 1) Community and non-profit groups often work independently of each other, missing out on the possible synergies, camaraderie and community building that occurs when working together. 2) Tax-exempt, non-501(c)(3) organizations, such as 501(c)(19) - Veteran Organizations, are often refused access to the resources afforded other exempt organizations. These organizations do good for the community and are as deserving and needful as others.
