Combat wounded veterans of Texas
Capital Chapter 1919, in Austin, Texas undertake many worthy projects for
the benefit of disabled veterans, for other veterans and their families, and
for the greater community of which we are a part. See the “mission
statement” and “Purple Santa” entries of this website for details
Membership dues provide only a
small fraction of the funds needed each year to support this ambitious
program. Instead, we rely upon donations from those among our members who
have the financial ability and the will to push our work forward. We also
welcome contributions from any other individuals, from other organizations,
and from businesses and corporate sponsors. Upon request, contributions
will be applied to a specific need such as veterans support (VAVS), veterans
scholarships (ACC endowment), or community support (Operation Purple Santa)
projects, but we prefer them to be undesignated.

Chapter 1919 is incorporated in the
state of Texas as a tax-exempt, non-profit veterans group operating as an
IRC 501 (c) (19) organization. When the donor
requests, a certificate will be provided for donations made to Chapter 1919. At any given
time we have about 50 individuals; our volunteers, project chairmen, and
chapter officers that are busy on these projects, devoting anywhere from an
hour or two, up to near full-time work at various tasks. None of these
individuals receive pay, financial incentives, or reimbursement of personal
expenses (gas money, phone calls, postage, etc.) incurred while so serving.
Officers operate from their homes; the chapter itself does not rent or own
property or office equipment, and has negligible administrative costs.

promote public recognition of their support for our veterans programs.
Please support them.
