national competitor who is willing to devote at least two hour of
their time to mentoring an at-risk child is welcome to join this
organization. In so doing, the athlete will receive instruction
on how to proceed with materials and support that will aid in their
fundraising efforts and open the door to much larger donations due
to the 501(c)(3) status.
Due to the unique mission statement, funds
raised will be allocated for the athlete’s training and competitive
expenses and for the at-risk child’s martial art education.
The athlete will also then be posted (with all the prominent athletes)
on the AEA website. This also will aid in their fundraising efforts.
This should answer all of your questions.
If not, please direct any questions to Dr. Tom Paolino MD: Director
