Official Federation Stardate:

A Season of Giving

Dec 19, 2017 | Uncategorized

The Giving Season.

Whether it is in the spirit of the holiday or for financial and tax reasons, this time of the year is when 90% of charitable donations are made.  I am writing to ask you to consider the works of The Federation when making your donations.

Since 1984, The Federation has truly gone places and helped people, as assigned by Federation co-founder Gene Roddenberry.  Our local chapters around the world have helped thousands of people in their areas.  At times of major disaster, our headquarters offices have coordinated those efforts to send aid, supplies, funds and volunteers to victims.

The Federation is rated GOLD by GuideStar, a top-rated charity monitoring organization.  You can give with confidence.  And unlike most other charities, 100% of your donations go to help those in need.  We take nothing off the top of your donations for administrative and operating funds like other charities do.

Won’t you consider The Federation when you give this year?  Help us to continue our work to bring about that bright future.  You can give any number of ways.  You can donate directly to The Federation or via a charity collecting site like PayPay Giving Fund, eBay for Charity or GuideStar.  You can even send a check or money order if you wish.

I thank you so very much for your support and consideration.

Russ Haslage, President
International Federation of Trekkers, Inc.
