The DML Foundation Inc is a 501(c)(3) , and it serves our nation by lending financial support to veterans, veterans groups, children in need, homeless Americans, recovering addicts, people who have lost their jobs or homes, front line workers such as nurses, doctors, cops, 9/11 families, school safety projects, families of first responders who die in the the line of duty, and so on.
How and where the DML Foundation receives its funding:
Mary and I started the foundation a few years ago as a way to give back to the American people. The foundation receives it’s funding exclusively from the businesses owned and operated by Mary and me.
We do not take a salary from the charity, and none of the money donated to The DML Foundation is used for personal use. Most of the donations are monetary based, but on occasion we will donate materials such as blankets, food, health products, and clothing.
To help grow The DML Foundation please support my websites, and purchase DML branded products.
