Help Us Reach Our Goal!

Dear FOS11 Member,

Children of September 11 (COS11) is proud to participate in the 2006-2007 Booz Allen Hamilton-Redskins Yards for Youth program. We are thankful for the pledges we have received, but still need your help to meet our goal!

We are one of a number of participating nonprofits to benefit from funds pledged for offensive yards gained by the Redskins during the 2006-2007 football season. Yards for Youth has raise funds throughout the football season—from September’s home opener to the final game in December. With your support, we win with every offensive yard is gained.

How can you help us reach our goal?

Individual donations will be accepted online through the end of the day on Monday, January 15, 2007. Although the Redskins season is over, the Yards for Youth website is still live and accepting donations. To make a pledge or one-time donation to Children of September 11, log onto http://www.yardsforyouth.org/SeptemberChildren. Your support may help us receive a matching funds grant of up to $2,500. For the first 20 small nonprofits with the highest amount of individual donations, Booz Allen Hamilton will match funds up to $2,500.
