  • About the event

    “The Funding Units Foundation” is a licensed nonprofit organization the state of VA and we take money that is raised and give it to the local Army Reserve Units in the DMV area. There is a huge need of funds for these small Reserve Units that, every year, struggle to raise money for events like a holiday party, family day or even a hail and farewell for Soldiers coming and going overseas. These units would never see a penny from the larger foundations so this was the main reason we started this type of organization. So we find those small units, which is easy because I’m in the Military and heavly involved with them, and present them with a check. Presenting this money will give their Family Support Group (FRG) a steady bankroll going forward. We are new, so our donations have been small, which is why this fundraiser is so important. This event should bring in thousands of dollars which will allow us to really help out a few Units right be for their holiday party, not to mention put us on the map.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Since we are a new organization not only with your name get out to the attendies but also everyone we reach out to. Selling tickets to this event is our main priority, so we are going to hit every age group, demographic and every interest just to get those ticket buyers. SInce each ticket, flyer, or email that goes out will have your name and website printed on it. Your logo, as well as other that sponsor the event, will be located at every seat in the event. This will not only reach out to the personnel attending the event but everyone we reach out to in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area. Since this is a military nonprofit organizaton, it is always a plus to put you name behind the greatest fighting force in the world.

    I have been in the Military for 15 years now and have seen first hand how the small Reserve Units struggle to raise money fo simple morale type functions. This is something I'm passionte about, thus I started this foundation. I'm married with two kids so it is also important to show them giving is much more satisfying than recieve, another reason for starting the organization.
