The Metropolitan Detroit Veterans Coalition is a 501c-3 Organization, contributions are deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code. Mailing Address for contributions : Attention MDVC Recording Secretary, Richard Chatman, 20209 Briarcliff, Detroit,Mi. Checks to be made out to MDVC, in Memo section "Detroit Veterans Day Parade".
We need your help to keep our parade going.
The MDVC is asking our fellow citizens, businesses and organizations to consider becoming a Sponsor or Donor by making a tax deductible monetary or in-kind donation in support of our annual Detroit Parade.
The MDVC has been coordinating the Detroit Veterans Day Parade beginning in 2006. The parade was started to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces, annually on the Saturday before Veterans Day, in Michigan’s largest city, once heralded as “The Arsenal of Democracy, Detroit, Michigan".
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Day National Committee selects a number of regional sites each year for Veterans Day observances throughout the country. These sites are recognized as model events for the observance of Veterans Day. The MDVC is proud of the fact that Detroit has been recognized each year starting in 2007 as a regional site and the first to be recognized in the State of Michigan. To see the recognized VA Regional Sites visit the VA Veterans Day Regional Site Page: http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/
As our parade has grown, as we had hoped, so has the cost of the event including paying for services provided by the City of Detroit that use to be done for free. It has become necessary to raise sufficient funds to ensure we keep marching every year.
We are hoping that people who understand how important Veterans Day is to those who have served, and appreciate the sacrifices made by our armed forces and their families, will contemplate donating to our parade.
You don’t have to give until it hurts—just give until it feels good. Whatever you give or contribute will make a huge difference to us and the success of the Detroit Veterans Day Parade.
All funds donated to the parade will be strictly used for the cost of putting on the event. Our Federal Tax ID number will furnished upon request.

We humbly appreciate your consideration and hope you join us by attending our celebration of America’s Heroes.
