School supplies such as: notebook paper, pink erasers, folders, graph paper, etc. are ALWAYS needed.
Organize a Fundraising Event
Black Diamond Charities is always looking for new events that will benefit “Our Veterans and Our Kids”. Golf tournaments, fraternity and sorority events to boy scouts and girl scouting events, any event can help raise funds and awareness to our charity. We would be eternally grateful for the support from your event.
Make a Donation
Monetary donations are always greatly appreciated. They offset the costs of our Veterans Program and our BacPacs for Kids Program. Without your donations we can not supply the children with back packs FILLED with school supplies and we are not able to continue our programs that help to transition our soldiers from military to civilian life.
- Sponsor a Vet – The vets program averages about $100 per person. The class and supplies are free to veterans.
- Sponsor a Back Packer – A complete back pack averages about $30.
- Holiday Tribute – Donate in honor of a special person.
- Birthday Gifts – Donate in honor of a special person’s birthday.
Sponsor a Veteran
Through our transitioning program our Veterans can learn to set goals and realize the skills that are needed to acheive a successful transition. This takes place through our project management course which focuses on Leadership, Communication and Planning. This program is so vital for these men and women to realize the value their service and sacrifice have done on our behalf.
The cost to provide each veteran training in this course would average $100. This course is FREE to each veteran who makes the commitment to attend the training. A certificate is awarded upon completion of the course. The cost covers the materials necessary for the class. The trainers graciously donate their time and energy to support our veterans.
Sponsor a BacPac’r
Black Diamond Charities collects pacs and fills them with basic supplies such as: crayons, pencils, pens, folders, notebooks, and so on. With family and friends these packs are then distrubuted to those students in need. A small note of encouragement will be included in the pack. Our pacs will to go Illinois, North Carolina and Florida this year.
Each pac costs about $30. Won’t you consider sponsoring a BacPac or two with Black Diamond Charities. The kids could be a child of a sick parent, a neighbor who lost his job, a single parent, a child of our Military Men and Women, a family member of your own. Please won’t you help!
