06 Feb WHS now accepting applications for 2017-2018 Charity: deadline March 15!
We’re looking for our next great charity! Â Each year, WHS selects a charity related to the homeland security community as their charity of choice. Â We host two fundraisers: the WHS BBQ Cook-Off and our Spirit of Giving Auction. Â To date we have raised over $150,000 for charities such as the Fairfax International Search & Rescue, the ICE Foundation, the Border Patrol Foundation, the USCG Enlisted Memorial, the No Greater Sacrifice Foundation, NLEOMF, and the FBI Agents Association.
Do you know of a charity that could use our attention?
We raise approximately $30,000 – $40,000 and all proceeds of our fundraising go to the charity.
1) The charity must support the homeland security community
2) The charity does NOT have to support just women
3) The charity must be open to an on-going relationship with WHS and work with us to build the homeland security community (put together a BBQ team, help us market the events to their folks).
Do you know of a deserving charity that fits the bill? Â Please send your suggestions and share this offer with deserving charitable organizations!
Ready to apply? Â Do so here:
The WHS Board of Directors will vote on the submissions in March and announce the charity in the April newsletter. Â Thank you for your thoughts!
