National President’s Project 2022-2023: Our Military Kids, Inc
Each year, the National President creates a National Project and Theme in support of educational programs. Led by the National President and Senior National President, the National Officers, State Presidents, and National Chairmen promote the project and theme throughout the country.
Our Military Kids, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization that recognizes the sacrifice of children of deployed National Guard, deployed Reserve, or post 9/11 combat-injured members by offering extracurricular activity grants. The goal is to build the child’s self-confidence, enhance family wellness and strengthen sense of community.
The Goals of this year’s National Project are to do the following to support Our Military Kids, Inc.:
1. N.S.C.A.R. will raise awareness of the importance of activities and artistic expression help to improve morale, camaraderie, and overall societal health, especially in children.
2. N.S.C.A.R. will raise financial support to go toward scholarships for Our Military Kids, Inc. to encourage children to engage in activities that inspire and ultimately build the future of our society and highlight American values.
3. N.S.C.A.R. will increase membership through encouragement of the real impact kids can have on our country and our worlds if they use their own gifts to serve and uplift others, especially our youth.
4. N.S.C.A.R. will increase our presence on social media to promote membership through participation in monthly challenges.
Fundraising Goal for 2022-2023
The fundraising goal is to raise at least $25,000 to be able to supply at least 83 children with scholarships in the amount of $300 per child. In return Our Military Kids, Inc. will promote N.S.C.A.R. on their social media platforms.
