We are inundated with appeals for funds to support worthy causes. They make us want to open our hearts and wallets to provide help, immediately. At times this gets overwhelming, but it becomes very clear when we are striving to provide support for the families of wounded Special Operations Forces that have been wounded or killed that the Red Circle Foundation is needed and we are proud to support this community everyday to the best of
We know that there are a number of well-funded organizations and agencies that will provide help to these hurting families. It may take weeks, or months to organize the help and actually reach the families in need. Our intent is not to negate those great sources of help, but to support.
Red Circle Foundation is a force that stands in the gap and helps in the very beginning until those agencies are able to step in and provide that source of strength and support needed for all of the wounded or deceased and their families who are in need.
Through the Red Circle
The funding provided may go to pay travel expenses, or for household support. Sadly, money at times is allocated to provide for memorial services. Having these immediate needs met allows these to focus on coping with the radical change in their lives and it allows the wounded warrior space to heal without the anxiety of unmet responsibilities.
Our aim is to help wounded and fallen
Other agencies will also respond, but our foundation aims to be the first on the scene. No Special Operations family should feel alone. Help is available to all branches of the service. The Emergency Gap Funding program is in place to cover the expenses of a U.S. Military Special Operator and family for 90 days after an incident.
Support for the Children
Many things change when a Special Forces Operator meets with disaster. Perhaps the parent can no longer be active with his children or is sent on
Transparency in Spending
In general, when individuals make donations to charitable organizations, a portion of each dollar given goes to administrative costs, salaries, and expenses, rather than to the actual cause. Red Circle Foundation is an exception to this rule. Donor contributions are given entirely to relief and support of Special Operations Forces.
All overhead costs of the Red Circle Foundation are met by corporate donors. Individuals who donate can be assured that their entire contribution goes to the direct help of injured and fallen Special Forces Operators and their families.
Information about the board of directors and their salaries are public records. Persons interested in the policies and spending of the organization are encouraged to look to their website as well as to social media accounts.
The Red Circle Foundation was founded in 2012. It is a 501(C)3 Federal nonprofit. Thanks to corporate sponsorship, all donations go directly to provide immediate help to Special Operations Forces and their families in times of need.
Donors can sponsor fundraisers to multiply the impact of their contributions. Local events are one place that the community can learn about the Red Circle Foundation. On their website suggestions are given to maximize your contributions. One idea is to develop a “Stay the Course” challenge, based on your individual passions and skills. Challenge others to do the same, whether it is crafting, bake sales or athletic events in the community. Some employers offer matching funds to charities that are supported by their employees.
Red Circle Foundation is about funding needs, but more importantly, it is about a community standing together to care for those who protect us, and our nation.
