The Iwo Jima Survivors Association, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(19) veterans organization, does accept financial
contributions. These would be used to produce their Iwo Jima Survivors Journal and fund their educational
and memorial programs. The Journal is filled with one-of-a-kind articles, letters photos and information from
fellow survivors. It is greatly enjoyed by all and is a vital link in keeping the veterans united. The Iwo Jima
Survivors Association can be reached by contacting Vincent Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or by
visiting our Contact Us page.
The Support Our Survivors of Iwo Jima is an organization of volunteers which help to maintain the memorial,
help the survivors and help run events at the park. Because it is not a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, it
refers all donations to be made to the Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation, Inc., its 501(c)(3) counterpart, to
receive donations for park maintenance. Support Our Survivors of Iwo Jima does however, accept help from
volunteers or donations of material items needed to carry out the mission of the Iwo Jima Survivors
Association. Items which we frequently need are photocopying gift cards, stamps, event signage, printer ink
and office supplies. We do have a great need for volunteers to help prepare for, organize and carry out
annual park events.
Donations to help maintain the National Iwo Jima Memorial in Connecticut can be made by going HERE.
We thank you in advance for your interest and help.
This program would match a volunteer with an Iwo Jima Survivor who lives in their area (if one is available).
The volunteer would call or visit the survivor to keep in contact, pass along information from the SOS
website or email, give the survivor a ride to events and act as a liason to communicate with those veterans
not able to freely get around.
|Programs we hope to start but need volunteers
Volunteer would write a "thank you" card to be sent to veterans in hospitals and nursing homes. Let them
know we appreciate their service to our country and that they are not forgotten.

This is a worthy program which we would like to implement. We are looking for a volunteer to
act as a Volunteer Coordinator to run this program for us. You would match volunteers with
Survivor and Park projects that we are doing, keep track of volunteer hours and coordinate an
"end of the year" Awards Program for our volunteers.
