Honor 9/11 Heroes and raise funds for First Responder charities. The PM is the key leader to organize and produce a dynamite exhibit and/or concert. The Project Manager (PM) also manages local charities and city departments to sell, collect and keep half (50%) of NET commemorative sales, event cash donations, and all ticket proceeds after paying “at cost” concert production and merchandise expenses. All “pooled” TEAM-UP funds are dispersed to individual organizations based on ticket sales percentage. The Project Manager is responsible to set/pay production expenses, local fees, keep records, nominate charities to WM selection committee, distribute funds and produce an open ledger of all monies. In addition, TEAM UP local charities can sell other appropriate items as approved by the Project Manager.WM Officers and volunteers do NOT receive a salary. With national donations, we have purchased a 40-foot Semi trailer, Ambulance, sea-going steel container, World Memorial Command RV and all associate equipment. Corporate documents, IRS FM 990, itemized estimates, and references are available.
