This opportunity to do a fundraiser for Pay It Forward Tucson comes at a perfect time. Since 2012 I have been helping low Income Families and Veterans by providing whatever money I could afford to give myself in order to assist others. Working out of pocket has its disavantages of course, but it is something I have done without regret.
Fortunately in November of 2016, PIFTucson became a full blooded nonprofit 501(c)(3) and since then I have been able to legally request the financial assistance of other organizations, but much to my surprise, I have yet to receive any major contributions from any one entity, and so I continue to use the little money I can afford to give to help others.
It is my most sincere hope that this fundraiser will change all that.
What We Do
Pay It Forward Tucson is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. It is a Veteran established organization where the community of Tucson and Pima County can come together as one in hopes of fulfilling the needs of low-income families and Veterans. Its purpose is to complement the already established city, state, and county assistance, in a collaborative effort, with the hopes of eliminating hunger, homelessness, loss of basic human needs, and poverty with the use of donations, volunteers, and resources.
The specific objectives and purpose of this organization shall be:
a. To provide assistance with basic needs (i.e., utilities, housing, moving, household goods, food, bus passes etc.)
b. To provide Mental Health First Aid classes to the community;
c. To provide education through music;
d. To sponsor, host, and/or participate in events and activities that promote or that relate to its Mission.
