Affiliates and Event Partners

 

AFFILIATES

Affiliates are select non-profit organizations that wish to help promote flag sales for the Field of Honor®. Approved Affiliates receive a portion of the proceeds for their fundraising efforts.

Your school club, church, or non-profit organization can become an “Affiliate” through which people can order flags and the organization shares in the revenue as a fundraiser as long as the proceeds benefit veterans or first responders.

Please contact a Co-Chair to learn about the 2018 Affiliate program and to be considered for Affiliate status!

EVENT PARTNERS and CONTRIBUTORS

Event Partners are organizations that provide an event at the Field of Honor® that are approved by the Field of Honor® organizers and contributors. These events take place in the event tent at the Field of Honor® at no charge to the approved organization. The event must benefit veterans or first responders and must also be beneficial to the community. Any proceeds raised by any Event Partner will be presented to veteran and first responder beneficiaries at a future Rotary meeting.
