**World AIDS Day Detroit is a partnership of existing non-profits. The Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan (HFM) is the WADD fiduciary and will issue tax receipts for charitable contributions to WADD. HFM was chosen as fiduciary because it is fiscally strong with an annual budget of over 2.5 million dollars and has been named one of the best managed non-profits by Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine. All contributions made to WADD are restricted for use by the WADD committee and any net proceeds will be returned to organizations that provide services to the HIV/AIDS community.
