We recently announced that the Military Spouse JD Foundation (“MSJDF”) was invited to compete in Newman’s Own Foundation’ CrowdRise Challenge: Honoring Those Who Serve. Only charities that have been specially selected by Newman’s Own Foundation are able to compete. We are honored to be in the running!
The Challenge is a fundraising initiative to help charities gain recognition as well as funding. The charity that raises the most money through November 11, 2013 will be given a $75,000 grant by Newman’s Own Foundation. Currently, MSJDF is in twelfth place, so we have some work to do!
Please help us win the grant by donating! The more money we earn in donations, the better chance we have to win the Newman’s Own grant. As a reminder, MSJDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible.
The MSJDF is the education and service foundation of the Military Spouse JD Network. Donations help military families help themselves by empowering spouses to work. MSJDF develops its members as professionals, teaches them effective advocacy skills, and then provides them with opportunities to use those skills to address the legal needs of the military and veterans communities.
Additionally, MSJDF is in the process of launching its Justice for Military Families program to oversee pro bono partnerships with organizations like the American Bar Association and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and to develop a virtual law clinic whereby members will assist military families and veterans with legal issues, completely free of cost to the client.
Your donation will help military families directly as well as the communities in which they live and work. Widespread solutions and real, measurable social changes are implemented with every dollar donated.
Thank you for embracing these ideals of education and service, in addition to charity, via your support.
