“When we looked at the many good causes that are supported by the Las Cruces business community it became clear that more needed to be done,” said Dickerson. “While all local charities do good work, too much money goes to administrative expenses and professional staffing. As Revolution-120, we will raise funds and redistribute 100% of everything we raise to qualified individuals and small groups. And by providing purchased goods and services to those in need, we really will change the
way Las Cruces gives.”
According to Dickerson, Revolution-120 will have no paid staff and will fund itself through an annual golf tournament and other fundraising events. Individuals and small groups seeking financial assistance will be directed to complete an online application that will subsequently be reviewed by a decision-making committee drawn from the group’s board of directors.
