Billionaire Marine Veteran Wants To Raise $10 Million For Semper Fi Fund
Tuesday, November 25, 2014
GoDaddy founder and Marine Corps veteran Bob Parsons wants to raise $10 million for the Camp Pendleton-based Semper Fi Fund.
If donors can raise $5 million by Dec. 31, Parsons will match it with $5 million from the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.
"It doesn't matter whether someone was in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marine Corps – we want to help if we can. By providing $5 million in matching funds we hope to increase support for our wounded, injured and critically ill service members."
Parsons' challenge is all part of the 10 for 10 Challenge, as a way to celebrate the Semper Fi Fund's ten year anniversary.
The Semper Fi Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2004 by Karen Guenther, wife of a Camp Pendleton Marine. The goal of the nonprofit is...
...to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for injured, ill and wounded members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
As of Nov. 25, roughly $3 million had been raised. If you are interested in donating, click here.
