Dear members of WP-ORG,
Please let me welcome new WP-ORG subscribers since our last fund drive. Some of you are graduates, some are Army or Navy parents, and some are members of our many service-related lists. Allow me to personally welcome each of you.
As most of our subscribers know, WP-ORG services are funded by your donations to our semi-annual fund drives. Today marks the beginning of our 29th drive since WP-ORG’s inception during the mid ’90s.
Should you wonder what constitutes an “acceptable” donation amount, our answer is now as it’s always been: donate in accordance with the value you receive from the services provided by WP-ORG, but not more than you can comfortably afford.
WP-ORG is an independent volunteer organization completely separate from the United States Military Academy and its Association of Graduates (AOG), although at times we work very closely with both of them. We currently serve and support approximately 30,000 members from the USMA class year groups, parents of current cadets and midshipmen, and West Point societies and parent clubs as well as other special interest groups that are a part of our community.
We are governed by a volunteer board of advisors. Brief biographical sketches of the current members of the WP-ORG Board of Advisors may be seen here.
Our budget for the next six months is $104,010. It may be reviewed here.
We are cognizant that these may be difficult financial times for some and therefore we have made a concerted effort to keep our budgeting requirements as austere as possible. Our past 18 fund drive requirements may be viewed here.
Some may wonder why they should donate. An explanation may be found here.
As in previous drives, you may make a secure donation by using your credit card here.
Or you may donate by check made payable to WP-ORG and sent to:
3800 Buffalo Mountain Road SW
Willis, Virginia 24380-5082
Please be sure to indicate your affiliation and/or year group on your check.
Regardless of the donation method you choose, WP-ORG is recognized by the IRS as a 501(C)(3) Non-Profit Organization. 100% of your donation is tax deductible. For those who may need it, our EIN is: 51-03877132. Remember that you may earmark part or all of your United Way donation to WP-ORG.
The authorization may be found here.
Thank you for your support! You are WP-ORG. Your donations make WP-ORG possible.
If you receive more than one copy of this message, it only means that you have more than one e-mail address registered with WP-ORG.
