NAFC’s Non-Profit Foundation | 800-324-8315
NAFC was approved in 2016 by the 9-11 GI-Bill for reimbursement to veterans for the “test-out” of NAFC Programs/Certifications. NAFC has partnered with multiple organizations who have guaranteed the hiring of all veterans that go through the NAFC certification process.
The ‘Not Forgotten Foundation’ has donated thousands of dollars of programming in scholarships and partial scholarships to support not only veterans working with the Wounded Warrior Project but for all veterans who have qualified for GI-Bill reimbursement.
NAFC Non-Profit’s Not Forgotten project is dedicated to helping our soldiers transition back into society in a productive career, focused on health, wellness and healthy lifestyle choices. NAFC non-profit recognizes the sacrifices made by our veterans. We also recognize the value of the specialized training they have received while in the military, which not only has prepared them for the defense of our Country but can also be directed towards a meaningful contribution to the growing health care needs that our American society so desperately requires.
NAFC Mission is dedicated to helping our soldiers transition back into society in a productive career, focused on health, wellness and healthy lifestyle choices.
Through our Not Forgotten™ Scholarship Program, we are helping thousands of U.S. Armed Forces personnel continue their efforts to improve lives through health & fitness and build a stable future for themselves and their families when their military service ends.
To assure the majority of all funds donated directly benefit Veteran’s scholarships the NAFC:
- Extends a 20% Discount on all Certification Courses (with or without scholarship)
- Includes Career Development and Job Placement at No Cost
- Extends the same 20% Discount on Tuition Fees to immediate family members
*The 20% course discount is extended to offset the majority of administrative, credit card or banking fees associated with processing and managing donations. This assures donors that 90% of all cash donations are effectively applied directly towards Veteran’s Scholarship Courses. In turn, this helps to extend the number of Veterans able to participate in the donations/scholarship process.
While the Spirit of Giving is a substantial reward, we understand how important the bottom line is to our Corporate Sponsors. Here are some additional incentives for contributing:
- 91% of global consumers are likely to switch brands to one associated with a good cause, given comparable price and quality
- 61% of consumers are willing to try a new brand or one they’ve never heard of, because of its association with a particular cause
- 50% of global consumers said they would be willing to reward companies that give back to society by paying more for their goods and services (44% in the U.S. and 38% in Canada).
Direct cash contributions are always welcome and will speed the delivery of scholarships available for our Veterans.
There is a direct correlation between funds raised, delivery time and pricing because this is where the money is at and is arguably one of the most important aspects of the campaign.
Services and/or Products
Our marketing campaign will only be as good as the sponsors involved and the rewards that we offer.
The donation of products or services to the Crowdfunding campaign, will, in turn, be offered as rewards for individual donors. These items will be offered to provide additional incentives for individual donors to contribute funds.
Since the campaign will be nationwide, products and services that can be redeemed regardless of the contributor’s residential address will be of the most value.
Email Marketing is the cornerstone of our fundraising strategy.
Company customer email lists may also be provided as contributions. We can then target these lists via email and social media marketing campaigns to increase awareness, expand our audience and drive additional traffic to the campaign.
This is done by providing email creatives that can be used by your company’s email system, respecting the privacy of your customers. This way, the email invitation to become involved in charity sponsor event to benefit Veterans comes from your system.
We pride ourselves in expertly written email marketing copy that is layered so that the momentum builds upon each piece of information that we share.
Targeted email marketing, social media advertising, backer rewards and well-designed copy impact the entirety of our campaign, creating a ripple effect throughout the entire promotion strategy.
We will build on our existing email lists and followers on Social Media, providing incentives to share our fundraising efforts virally.
Social Media is key in any Viral Marketing strategy as a means to spread the message by sharing.
Social media marketing and advertising can exponentially amplify our Crowdfunding results.
We understand the complexities, causes, and effects of the impact of each platform we are planning to use, as well as how the messaging created and their ads complement the overall marketing strategy.
We plan to marry the delicate balance required for social media, email marketing, and targeted advertising to be beneficial to our campaign. Our holistic approach will strengthen our ads and overall brand image of all parties involved.
We know that social media is an increasingly effective strategy for non-profits to raise awareness and funds, and more importantly, to connect with supporters.

Powered by the Crowd:
- It’s more efficient than traditional fundraising. We can grow funds in a much shorter time frame.
- It’s a place to build traction, social proof, and validation, expand program awareness which shows our community and the rest of the world WHY our mission is so important.
- It’s an opportunity for Crowdsourced brainstorming to refine our idea. We can tweak the campaign as we go, add rewards, and learn important insights into the hearts and minds of those who participate and wish to engage.
- It gains us early adopters and loyal advocates, which extends to all brands partners involved.
- It doubles as marketing and media exposure for the vision, mission, branding and all sponsors or parties who contribute.
Sharing and Connecting:
By creating a successful Crowdfunding campaign launch, our public relations efforts and opportunities are more likely to succeed. We will ensure that all aspects of the campaign are optimized and look great so that press will be easier to achieve.
Because of the ability to share and connect through mobile devices and desktops, spreading information is made easy. With just a few people, our cause has the ability to spread all over the world. We plan to give supporters something entertaining and fun to engage in through social networks, which will make people want to participate and make a difference. Our goal is to give people an opportunity that allows people to participate in a way that makes them feel like they are making a difference.
Additionally, social media are relatively inexpensive. We plan to create and send out ongoing messages at a cost that is way cheaper than that of direct mail and television or radio ads.
