Each October, Kirby’s Steakhouse partners with an organization with the goal of giving back to the community that has been our home since 2007. This year, we are delighted to announce our partnership with Building Homes for Heroes!
Building Homes for Heroes is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501© (3) organization that was founded in 2006 with the purpose of rebuilding lives and supporting the brave service men and women who were injured while serving the country during the time of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. The organization accomplishes this lofty goal by gifting mortgage-free homes that meet the needs of the people who were injured while serving our country. Additionally, Building Homes for Heroes has added programs such as financial planning services, family funding and emergency support in order to provide these new home owners with the guidance and advice needed to plan for a successful future.
It is important to make sure you know that your money is going to a reputable organization when donating to charity. Organizational efficiency and sound fiscal responsibility are extremely important to Building Homes for Heroes. Neither the CEO nor its board members are compensated for their duties, fundraising and administrative costs are kept to a minimum with a small percentage of funds allocated to overhead costs. These measures mean that for fiscal year 2016, Building Homes for Heroes was able to hold a program service percentage of 92.82% while gifting 29 homes to wounded veterans! View up to date financial information here. You can also view a list of service people who have been gifted mortgage-free homes by Building Homes for Heroes here.
The goal for 2017 is to gift 33 homes. Now for the big question, HOW CAN YOU HELP? We’ve made it very simple, purchase a ticket to the Building Homes for Heroes Dinner on October 26th. One hundred percent of the proceeds from these ticket sales will go directly to Building Homes for Heroes in the San Antonio area!
