The Freedom Flag
I posted recently about the Freedom Flag to the website page where you can order a flag for yourself, sponsor a flag for a school, or order a lapel pin.
I also have a link to learn more about the Foundation, but thought I would provide some information here:
The Freedom Flag Foundation was first envisioned in November of 2001. This was a direct result of a recognized interest in the flag by the educational community. It became apparent that the Freedom Flag had a significant visceral effect on teachers who viewed it and requested copies of there own for use in their classrooms. This recognized acceptance and popularity of the Freedom Flag allowed Richard Melito, the flag's designer, to expand on his purpose for the flag. By December 2001 it seemed obvious that the flag would need a vehicle through which its purpose could be directed. Groundwork began in January of 2002 for the formation of a non-profit foundation with an appropriate mission statement and goals to support its mission. The Freedom Flag Foundation was registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia in May of 2002 and received its initial status as a 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service in November of 2002. It currently operates out of Richmond, Virginia. Four Richmond area residents serve on the Board of Trustees.
The Foundation generates revenue through sponsorship fees it receives for the Freedom Flag Project. Funds are used by the Foundation to purchase inventory, produce print materials, and offset some operational expenses. With increased participation in the school sponsorship program the Freedom Flag Foundation will establish a fully operational office with a staff whose purpose shall be the promotion and distribution of the Freedom Flag, the creation of teaching resource materials that can be used on future September 11ths, and an interactive website that will offer free educational resources to help teach students to honor, remember, revisit, and learn from those catastrophic events of September 11, 2001.
