Mr. Chuck Cunningham with Veteran's Outreach would like to provide the following information to all affiliates:
"WAAY TV Channel 31 is currently working with Complete Dental on what they call: The Million Dollar Grant program for local 501c3 charities. I saw this advertised during a news program, went on their website and applied for the grant by filling out an application and submitted Veterans' Outreach. The following week, I was contacted by one of their producers who lined up an interview at VO office in Hartselle. During the interview, they presented us with a grant check, and aired the interview on the 10:00 PM
This was not only a good means of supplementing our food bank, but a good way for people to find out about us and the work we do.
The reason I am addressing this, is that there are many of the affiliates to NAVFOC which are charities and would qualify for this grant money. I would suggest that there be initiated some effort to get the word out to the affiliates so they too can make application and receive grants."

Thanks for the heads up, Chuck!!
20 In 2
The North Alabama Veterans and Fraternal
Organizations Coalition (NAVFOC) launched the “20 in 2 ” - New Affiliate Organizations
campaign back on March 1, 2016. NAVFOC has been thankful to have Affiliate
Organizations that are passionate, committed, and full of zeal in their support
of Northern Alabama.
All Coalition Affiliates are encouraged to
participate in this grass roots campaign by sharing their individual NAVFOC
experiences with their colleagues, community partners, and other similar
organizations. The positive impact that the Coalition and Affiliates have had
on our communities should not be a secret. Increased participation will lead to
even more opportunities for Coalition Affiliates to foster professional growth,
expand networking opportunities, and drive change.
The benefits of NAVFOC are well worth sharing
Serves as a venue and communication conduit for affiliate organizations.
Provides affiliate organizations with an opportunity to network, present and
share information, and learn about best practices.
Advocate: Acts as a
common voice for the affiliate organizations on matters of common interest.
and sponsorship of events and activities of interest to the affiliate
Advertisement: Provide information sharing and promotion of affiliates’
information on our website.
The process is as easy as A, B, C! Appeal
to community partners, Build
relationships, and Connect to
member organizations. The 20 in 2 Campaign
includes an incentive program for every Affiliate organization in good
standing. For every new affiliate organization approved to join, and who pays
the annual fee within 10 days of recommendation, the referring Affiliate (in good
standing according to our Bylaws) organization will receive a $10 reduction in
the cost of their membership renewal. For example, 1 paid new Affiliate organization
= $40 renewal fee for next year membership renewal; 2 paid new member organizations
results in a $30 renewal fee for next year membership renewal.
One - Reach One: We are asking
each of you to reach out and recruit at least ONE new affiliate organization. In
2 years, our Coalition will grow by half of our current affiliate organization
and it will double in 4 years.
The High Five Club: Can you recruit five or more new affiliate organizations in fiscal year
2016 and become a part of the “High Five Club” and be recognized with a free
(wavier) membership renewal in Fiscal Year 2017? We will do the “High Five
Club” again in FY 2017 and we will also be waiving the FY 2018 membership fee.
Lastly, the highest recruiting affiliate organization (recruiting at minimal 3
new paid affiliate organizations) will be awarded free tickets for two to our
NAVFOC Dining In/Out that is currently being planned.
