Vetsec Becoming a Non-Profit!

2 comments

Hello everyone! This announcement is long overdue. VetSec is moving forward with our non-profit initiative.

Today, we registered for Slack’s non-profit in hopes of gaining status and going premium. The cost is ~$1 per active member. We average about 150 active members a month and that will grow as we grow.

With that being said, we’ve set up a Patreon page to help cover this cost. If you can spare a few dollars a month, please consider doing so. The page is: https://www.patreon.com/vetsec.

We intend to use the funds to first cover the cost of Slack and use the additional funds to help towards our initiative of a Con.

As we grow, we hope to use the funds for scholarships, trainings, materials, travel costs, etc. for members in need here.

Every dollar goes a long way. Lastly, once donations start flowing in, we plan on opening a page via Open Collective so you can see where the funds are going at all times.

  1. Great news. I just found this page recently. I’m a 10th Mtn infantry vet and did 6 yrs as a contractor. I am currently enrolled in an IT security course at my local college, and do self study as well. Digging your youtube channel as well. Take care.
