100% of all donations go directly to our veterans programs.
We are an all-volunteer organization. No one receives monetary compensation. All donations are used to further our mission as stated in our mission statement and in accordance with IRS Nonprofit Law. We are a registered 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and your contributions are tax deductible under the section 170 of the tax code. Federal Tax ID: 20-8365076.
This fund is what we use for the day to day operations of the organization. We purchase flags, poles, water, etc. and pay for our minimal expenses such as hosting this website.
In 2016 a new program was started by one of our riders who witnessed a homeless veteran being buried in a plywood box. With the help of several other riders they vowed to not allow a veteran to be buried without at least a proper casket. A partnership was created with a local DFW funeral home allowing us to purchase standard steel caskets at cost and provide them for indigent and homeless veterans. We have since purchased over a dozen caskets for our indigent and homeless veterans to be buried in.
Our mission is done out of honor and respect, and there is never a charge or an expectation of a donation. However, many have asked for a method to donate to the PGR in memory of the heroes we have stood for. These funds are placed into either our general or casket accounts per your direction.
