Thank you for considering Semper Fi Society of St. Louis for a charitable contribution.
All Officers and board members are non-compensated volunteers so all of our money goes right back into supporting our mission and leading the push for the St Louis Area Toys for Tots Campaign, and honoring area Gold Star Families.
Our largest expense as an organization includes the annual Gold Star Luncheon, website maintenance and organizing, facilitating and implementing the USMC Toys for Tots Campaign each year. As the organization that’s responsible for this endeavor, each year we need to fund-raise to carry on the USMC tradition of helping Santa deliver toys to the needy children of our community.
These expenses include (but are not limited to):
-Transportation/Lodging for our designated Toys for Tots coordinator to attend the Toys for Tots Foundation course in Quantico, VA and become an authorized/official coordinator.
– Advertising and media campaigns to include radio, billboards and television
– Print materials such as flyers, promotional materials, t-shirts for the volunteers, badges, ect
– Up front costs to host various Toys for Tots fundraising events
– Website Maintenance and Enhancements
