We are a 501c3 Tax-Exempt organization that believes in financial transparency. We are professional firefighters and paramedics, so this is just a passion. Nobody at Mutual Aid takes a salary (As a matter of fact, we are usually our biggest donors!), so every penny raised goes to airfare and uniforms and acquiring gear and storage and administrative costs. We have been blessed to have just enough money for each trip. But one of our immediate goals (aside from our Summer 2016 trip fundraising) is to raise enough money to ship a great amount of donated supplies in our storage unit to Guatemala via a shipping container.
