Did you know that 70 percent of veteran-related nonprofits get by on budgets of less than $100,000 per year? From this meager sum, these struggling organizations must pay rent, utilities, salaries, and of course programming costs.
To make matters worse, veteran-related nonprofits are facing a period of contraction in private giving. As a share of personal income, private giving declined from an average of 1.89 percent in 1970 to 1.62 percent in the mid-1990s. Between 2006-2012, giving by those with incomes over $200k declined by 4.6 percent.
At Challenge America, we appreciate the services these nonprofits provide and are doing our part to support their efforts. To this end, Challenge America recently launched a new crowdfunding platform that guarantees 100% of all donations flow to the cause or project of a donor's choosing. Our verified nonprofit partners serve a wide range of constituents and issue areas, oftentimes delivering critical services that our veterans and military families need to live.
We invite you to visit our donation site today and give to one of these worthy causes. Don't see a nonprofit in your community? Write us a quick note to tell us where we should go next.
Thank you all so much for your time and support!
