Hundreds of local charities throughout Ohio benefit from support
Columbus, Ohio (July 9, 2015) – The Ohio Veterans and Fraternal Charitable Coalition (OVFCC) announced this week that its video raffle program has now raised over $15 million for Ohio charities.
The funds directly benefit veterans’ posts, fraternal lodges and hundreds of local 501(c)(3) charities; fifty percent of the revenue supports the posts and lodges and fifty percent supports local 501(c)(3) charities in communities across Ohio.
Below is a sampling of just some of the important work veterans and fraternal organizations are doing to support local charitable causes that are so vital to our local communities throughout Ohio. These initiatives have been made possible through funds raised by the video raffle program:
- American Legion Department of Ohio Charities partner with Fallen 15 for the inaugural Veteran Women’s 5K
- OVFCC raffle funds have helped provide well over $100,000 to the Wright Patterson Airmen & Family Readiness Center
