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.
