Donations and Impact

In today’s environment, we believe people who support nonprofits want us to efficiently use our resources to provide measurable impact.  Transparency is critical in this environment, and we want to help people evaluate our progress. I am fairly certain that we are one of only a handful of nonprofits our size that posts its check register online, but we think that’s the right thing to do.  Using the economic impact formula developed by Team Rubicon, we have calculated that, for every $1.00 we have received, we’ve created $2.63 worth of impactful labor for the cause.  Considering our size, I’m happy with that.  As our research efforts kick-off and grow, I hope to increase that ratio event more.

One administrative note:  Like every other business entity, nonprofits have to submit a tax return to the IRS each year.  Because StandWatch’s revenue did not exceed $50,000 in 2016, we are only required to file the abbreviated 990N, which does not provide the details of the full 990.  That said, much of the information that’s included on the full 990 is available on this website.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly at zac@standwatch.org.

Financial Information and Frequently Asked Questions

What is StandWatch.org?

StandWatch.org is a non-profit corporation, established in September 2015, that provides free medical care and family support services to veterans and their families who live in small towns and rural areas. Over 300,000 veterans have died waiting for healthcare services. StandWatch is going to try and put an end to that.

Where Did The Idea Come From?

As a veteran and someone who worked in the defense sector for close to 17 years, our CEO, Zac Northup, is keenly aware of the issues that affect men and women in uniform.  After the recent Veterans Administration IG report was made public, he felt moved to do something, but a specific plan was elusive.  Later that week, Zac was watching a YouTube video series called Expedition Overland.  In episode seven, a group of veteran doctors and medics used modified four-wheel drive vehicles to travel to a remote village in Central America to provide free medical services to villagers.  This particular village was often overlooked by other aid organizations due to its remoteness. That’s where the idea for StandWatch came from.  Zac texted Dr. Melin Moses that night, and the two sat down the next morning to lay out a plan.  When the scale of the concept became more apparent, they asked another friend, Al Conaway, to come on board as Chief Operating Officer.  As a three man team, Zac focuses on strategic direction, messaging, and overall operations.  Melin is the exclusive decision-maker on all things medical including equipment needs, volunteer staffing for the clinic, and patient care.  Al is responsible for turning Zac’s crazy ideas into reality which basically involves nearly every aspect of the operational side of StandWatch.

What’s StandWatch’s Goal? Do We Have a Political Agenda?

Our only goal is to provide medical care and family support services to veterans on the ground in their communities. In particular, we want to fill the gap between VA facilities and veterans in rural areas. That’s it. StandWatch is not a political organization or advocacy group. We do not care about government reform, public policy, insurance, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), committees, or anything else that distracts us from saving lives. We will not facilitate political photo-ops, or allow our logo and name to be used for any political purpose. If an elected official wants to join in and get dirty alongside our volunteers at a Rally Point, that’s great. Otherwise, we will not allow our patients, or our organization to be exploited by anyone for political purposes. Stuff the politics. Let’s just take care of people.

Where Are You Getting Funding?

StandWatch.org will never accept one dime of government money. Frankly, given the amount of effort and time it takes to work through governmental processes and regulations, it’s a lot easier to rely on commercial sector donations.  Since inception, as of March 2016, we have raised a little over $11,000 in cash contributions, and another roughly $20,000 in donated equipment.  All of the money has gone into operations and trying to reach veterans to let them know what we’re doing. It is our hope that there are enough Americans across the country that feel the same responsibility that we do to care for the people who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms. As such, we will be 100% privately funded through individual and corporate donations.

In terms of revenue, we assumed from the beginning that we need multiple sources, with each providing a steady income stream. We have experimented with everything from events at restaurants, t-shirt sales, crowd funding, 5Ks, and good old fashioned begging. Some of these worked. Many of them cost us more money than what they brought in. But for now, we think we’ve got a handle of some promising opportunities, including:

A continuation of the Rally Point races and events, but on a smaller scale.

A reinvigorated effort to utilize the best online fundraising tools possible.

Outsourcing opportunities where we support other organizations that want to do a fundraiser on our behalf.

Capital campaigns that are focused on offline and online donations for specific projects, not just general fundraising.

A social for-profit enterprise where all net profits are donated to standwatch.org.

You can read more about our overall strategic plan on our SITREP section.

Is StandWatch.org a 501(c)3 Organization?

We received our 501(c)3 certification letter on January 15, 2016, with an effective date of September 26, 2015.  See here.

StandWatch.org is a West Virginia non-profit corporation established in September 2015. We submitted IRS Form 1023 on October 16, 2015. Similar paperwork was filed with the state. According to IRS regulations, we could have delayed submitting Form 1023 for up to 27 months after incorporation, but we wanted to do it immediately. We were thrilled that the IRS only took 90 days to approve and return our application.

As part of our 1023 application, we had to include notes for specific questions.  Here is a link to those notes.   Additionally, we were required to include a copy of our bylaws.  If you really want to see it, email us and I’ll provide you with a signed copy.

If you would like to see a copy of our 2015 990, you can view it here.  Because we only raised slightly more than $3000 between September 2015 and year-end ($850 of which was sent to the IRS for our 501(c)3 application), we were only required to file the 990-N form.  It was simple and painless.  Hopefully, we’ll break $50,000 in revenue in 2016 and our future tax returns be more detailed.  It’s a good problem to have.

How Much Must StandWatch Raise?

StandWatch.org is not interested in doing a “one-off” clinic.  In fact, less than six months after starting, we held our first one on February 27th, 2016, in Hurricane, WV, and it was a great success.  We have spent a great deal of time and money establishing our 501(c)3 status, accounting procedures, and internal policies so we can have the infrastructure to grow into a self-sustaining nonprofit. We are now in a position to scale operations and meet the need.  The only limiting factor is financial resources.  It’s really very simple:  The more money we have, the more people we can help.  Once we become fully mature, an annual operating budget of $1.5 million will allow us to pay for all the operating expenses (gas, equipment maintenance, insurance, purchase of non-durable items, etc.), prescriptions for patients, and ideally, surgical procedures on a case by case basis.

We will be adding more information to this page as more questions come up.  No veteran should die waiting for the healthcare they were promised. Not One More.
