Donations support the organization and provides for liability insurance, training materials, non-profit operating expenses (Yes, the state of New Jersey and the Federal Government get their share just to let us exist), badly needed ham radio equipment which can be deployed to equip up to four shelters, and operating expenses to allow us to store and maintain equipment and supplies. Unlike the Red Cross and United Way, no funds support organization officers. They all work for free. Donations are tax deductible since we are classified as a 501 (c)(3) charity.
