The Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation Raises Money for Semper Fi Fund
At the end of 2013, GoDaddy.com and The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation matched individual donations to the Semper Fi Fund, contributing to a fundraising total of $5 million over the course of two months. The sum was more than twice what the donation-matching initiative set out to raise. Initially, GoDaddy and the foundation promised that they would match up to $1 million in donations; however, the campaign hit its initial goal a month early. Building on that success, The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation twice upped its matching pledge, eventually contributing an additional $1.5 million to Semper Fi.
The money will go toward financial assistance for ill and injured members of the United States’ armed services and their families. Since 2004, Semper Fi has offered lifetime support and immediate help to thousands of wounded service members. The charity has given out over 67,000 grants in total and has earned top scores from several rating organizations for keeping its administrative costs low.
