One Dollar Club:

Back to Top

We offer financial assistance to Veteran and military families facing utility cutoff notices. The collection period runs from the 1st of each month to the last day of the same month. Donors can make one-time donations of any amount or subscribe to monthly recurring donations of any amount for up to one year OR indefinitely. Donations can be made via Paypal or with any major credit card. The assistance provided to any one person/family for a month is limited to $100. For months during which I Will Not Be #22 receives more than $100 in donations to the One Dollar Club, the organization will save the excess money for future months that may not reach $100 in donations. I Will Not Be #22 reserves the right to postpone payment of assistance if, during a single month, donations do not meet a minimum amount deemed substantial enough to benefit a recipient.

I Will Not Be #22 does not accept requests for assistance under the One Dollar Club Program. Recipients are selected by an objective and secure third party. The third party (Semper Fi Fund, EFMP Representative, etc) will conduct verification of need and verify military affiliation. If you have a specific request for assistance, please refer to the Special Requests section or Contact Us using the appropriate “Assistance” subject line.
