FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHY VETERANS?
Bryan Kim's grandfather was in the Army Medical Corps for 41 years. He served during a time when the people who defended our country were treated with respect and admiration, and their physical and psychological scars were honored when they came home. We believe that how a culture treats those who defend its walls is symbolic of the value they place on that service. Our newer generations of veterans deserve better than year-long average wait times and denial of the disability benefits they've earned.
Q: WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Our standard is 74% of all funds going to program work. That means 74 cents of every dollar of your donation goes to helping veterans in San Diego County stay in their homes.
Q: WHAT DOES POLITICAL NONPROFIT MEAN?
Moderate Majority is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. In taking only community funding and refusing corporate and government donations, we make the political statement that the people do not need to wait for the powers-that-be to act in order to care for veterans here in our own backyard. We give our grants based on our political understanding and the present reality that the VA is not working effectively or in a timely fashion.
Q: WHY DON'T YOU WANT GOVERNMENT GRANTS?
There are two good answers to this question:
- We don't want to risk funding cuts putting an end to our programs. No matter what happens with the political climate or the budget crisis, Moderate Majority can continue helping the people who need it the most.
- With government grants come government regulations. Moderate Majority's independence means we won't ever have to turn someone away because government regulations say they don't qualify.
