Summer Development Update

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services always kicks off summer by formally honoring our fallen heroes on Memorial Day weekend with an annual mailing that we send to 631 of our donors and friends. They have our sincere gratitude for their generosity and the trust they place in us. Since then, we have personally spoken with 71 of our current donors and received gifts or commitments from 105 of them.So far this summer, we had meetings with eight new potential partners, wrote and submitted 21 letters of inquiry or grant applications (two of which were collaborations with other partners) to various foundations, and had numerous one-on-one conversations with individual prospects. Almost all were with foundations, corporations or people that we have not interacted with previously. We proudly knock on every door in service to our veterans and military families. This summer, we are just doing it in short sleeves.
