WHS now accepting applications for 2017-2018 Charity: deadline March 15!

WHS Board Members Patricia Todaro Bolin, XLA; Pamela Sharpe, CBP, DHS; and Courtney Hammond, Deloitte making a difference.
We’re looking for our next great charity!  Each year, WHS selects a charity related to the homeland security community as their charity of choice.  We host two fundraisers: the WHS BBQ Cook-Off and our Spirit of Giving Auction.  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.
Requirements:
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?  Please send your suggestions and share this offer with deserving charitable organizations!
Ready to apply?  Do so here:
The WHS Board of Directors will vote on the submissions in March and announce the charity in the April newsletter.  Thank you for your thoughts!
