APO Supported Programs
The programs listed on our website are programs of a nonprofit private foundation called The APO Foundation Inc. The American Philanthropic Organization LLC (the website your on) exists to support programs and cover the overhead costs of The APO Foundation Inc, through fund raising campaigns and donations from profits of apparel sales. When you donate on our website, the money is directly deposited into The APO Foundation Inc bank account, and a tax deductible receipt is uploaded to the “My Account” page on this website.
For 100% of your donation to go directly to the veteran, we offer the choice to pay for your merchant processing fee upon checkout, if you choose not to, 96.5% of your donation goes directly to veteran. The APO Foundation or American Philanthropic Organization LLC does not use donations for overhead expenses. The only fee taken out of donations is the merchant processing fee, which is a mandatory fee charged by banking institutions for transaction management.
Our goal at APO is to help The APO Foundation instill hope, offer support, and provide security to March Village Residents. Our ultimate goal, and if applicable, is to get these veterans back into society with sustainable employment. We believe our veterans are capable of being some of the most influential citizens if given the chance and support to get back in the game.
