To fund our Chapter’s initiatives in helping the veteran community (and future veterans through our ROTC Achievement Award Program), we hold fundraisers throughout the year.
We also engage in several ad hoc fundraising activities ( i.e. Publix Poppy Days, Fishing Charter Raffle, Dive Helmet Raffle).
Chapter 1041 is a non-profit 501 (C) 19 organization. All monies raised go to fund the Chapter’s initiatives. All officers and members are volunteers, with no paid employees, office space or overhead. A written financial report is distributed to our members monthly. Our tax returns are available for your perusal (see the Resources Page).
The Chapter participates in various community activities (Stuart Air Show, Turner-Smith Park Dedication, Purple Heart Memorial dedication, and the Memorial and Veterans' Day parades) or can be found occasionally at your local Publix raising awareness and funds for the initiatives we support.
The Chapter is a beneficiary of the VVA HouseHold Goods Program and you can donate your used furniture, clothing and othere household goodsto this program by clicking this link.
