Wine To Water is a non-profit committed to supporting life and dignity for all through the power of clean water. The idea for Wine To Water was born with the first fundraiser being held in Raleigh, NC in early 2004. The founder, Doc Hendley was a bartender in Raleigh, and had a strong desire utilize the bar industry as a way to bring about positive change in the world. After becoming aware of the world’s water crisis, Doc held fundraisers at wine tastings and bars in the area. The funds from the events would be used to implement clean water projects around the world. The projects financed include digging and repairing wells, supplying areas with filtration systems and storage containers, and educating locals on how to maintain fresh water supplies. To date 50 countries, 1,038 communities and over 1,406,025 lives have been impacted by Wine to Water’s efforts.
wear blue: run to remember is a nonprofit running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military. The wear blue running community serves as a support network for those preparing for a deployment, living through a deployment, recovering from a deployment and healing from loss sustained during a deployment.
With every step, wear blue creates a living memorial to the service and sacrifice of the American military. And on race day, the wear blue Mile allows all runners to pay tribute to the service members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is a reminder that Freedom isn’t free – it was bought and paid for by men and women in uniform.
Semper Fi & America’s Fund (The Fund) was started in 2003 by military spouses who immediately volunteered to provide bedside support to those wounded and injured while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Operated today by those same military spouses, The Fund now includes a nationwide staff of patriotic veterans, community members, and volunteers, and The Fund’s model of lifelong relationships between service members, military families, and their team is completely unique among veteran nonprofits. The Fund cares for the nation’s critically wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, and military families. Supporting all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, they provide one-on-one case management, connection, and lifetime support. To date they have served 28,000 service members, veterans, and military families.
The SOWF (Special Operations Warrior Foundation) is a non profit founded in 1980 to ensure complete post-secondary educational support and additional educational opportunities “cradle to career,” for eligible surviving children of fallen Special Operations Forces and children of all Medal of Honor recipients; and to provide immediate financial assistance to severely wounded, ill, and injured Special Operations personnel — today and in the future. Since 1980 there have been 1,208 special operative fatalities, currently making 990 children eligible to receive full educational funding through the program. 467 children have successfully graduated college with SOWF’s support to date.
The CIA Officers Memorial Foundation was created in December 2001 to honor Johnny Micheal Spann, a CIA officer killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan responding to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and all those CIA officers who gave their last full measure in service to the Nation since the founding of the Central Intelligence Agency. Initially the Foundation focused on providing post secondary educational support for the children of fallen officers but soon discovered a need to also offer educational support for the spouses whose partners had paid the ultimate sacrifice. Each year since its inception, the Foundation has aided a growing number of children and spouses of CIA officers who died on active duty. To date, the Foundation has provided financial support and awarded scholarships to 170 dependents of deceased CIA officers. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Foundation granted a total of $1,546,541 to 68 students.
