About Carry The Load:

Our vision is to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day by connecting Americans to the sacrifices of our Military, Veterans, First Responders and their families.

 

Carry The Load ("Carry The Load") programs provide an active way for Americans to remember, honor and celebrate Memorial Day in dedication to those who sacrifice for us daily. Funds raised during Memorial May allow Carry The Load to grow its mission and vision, as well as provide our selected partners with visibility, resources and networking opportunities


If selected as a Non-Profit Partner, during our Memorial May campaign, you will have the opportunity to participate in Peer to Peer fundraising February 1 through Memorial Day using our platform and all fees associated with the platform will be absorbed by Carry The Load.  At the end of the fundraiser, 100% of the proceeds that you have raised during this campaign will come back to your organization.  Funds raised by partners during the Memorial May campaign are distributed once the campaign has closed and donations are reconciled (typically in the fall).  


In addition, 10 Beneficiaries will be selected annually by the committee based on those who have gone above and beyond their prior year as a Non-Profit Partner.  Funds raised peer to peer by Carry The Load are distributed as part of the Continuum of Care program after careful review by the Non-Profit Partner committee (typically in the fall).  The amount and timing of any amounts distributed by CTL are at the sole discretion of CTL, and NPP hearby acknowledges that it may or may not be the recipient of any funds distrbuted by CTL beyond those raised by NPP through it's team page.
