In January, 2017, our founder Jason Johnson forged strategic partnerships with the most influential 501(C)3 Non-Profits in the Chicago Region and the Nation:

  • Karl M. with Gallant Few© supports Combat Vetereans associated with the most dominant Direct Action Raid Force in the Department of Defense, the 75th Ranger Regiment.
  • Kevin B. from Chicago Vets© supports the entire Veteran community in Chicago by leading the way for Chicago Veterans to meet, network, and connect.
  • CJ S. supports us through the American Legion Post 973 on the Northside of Chicago.

We are honored to call each of them our Strategic Partners.
