STOP SENDING $$! WP-ORG Fund Drive 42 COMPLETE. THANK YOU! PDF Print E-mail
To all members of WP-ORG,

On behalf of WP-ORG's advisors, moderators, and tireless volunteers, I am delighted to announce that FD42 is successfully completed. WP-ORG's operations are fully funded through March. Thank you!

The final Donation Report may be seen at: https://secure.west-point.org/donate/report/

I'd like to thank everyone who made the effort to contribute. In addition, we are grateful to those who continue to donate countless hours of their valuable time. These long hours are a donation equally as important and valuable as money. Without either, WP-ORG would not exist.

Special kudos go to the Class of 1979 for line honors in both number of donations and total donation amount.

The fund drive is complete, the donation site has been shut down. Any donations that continue to be received by mail will be credited toward jump starting FD43.

In addition to donation reports, we archive for each fund drive daily tallies, charts and tables comparing performance measures of current and past drives, and additional data which you may find of interest:  http://www.west-point.org/service/fd42/program/

FD42 has been a great success. Once again, thank you!

FD42 down to the wire, closing this week PDF Print E-mail
Thanks to the generosity of 1,250 WP-ORG members, we've received 94% of the $92,344 needed to fund WP-ORG operations for the next six months. Thank you to all who have contributed!

Now we're only $5,000 short of FD42 goal. This chart shows progress of FD42 through Saturday, compared to FD38-FD41: http://www.west-point.org/service/fd42/program/42-34.gif

FD42 receipts are well ahead of recent average, and it looks to be our shortest fund drive in years. You can look it up: http://www.west-point.org/service/fd42/program/

If you value WP-ORG services, but haven't yet donated, we need your help to close out FD42. If you intend to make a donation, please make it now.

You can donate to FD42 by credit card, check, or PayPal: http://www.west-point.org/donate/

Your donations make WP-ORG services possible.

Thank you,

Bill MacLean
WP-ORG Advisor

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin to be grand marshal in NYC Veteran’s Day Parade PDF Print E-mail

 Space pioneer Buzz Aldrin will elevate NYC Veteran’s Day Parade as Air Force turns 70

 His mom’s maiden name was Moon.

That probably wouldn’t have mattered if Buzz Aldrin had become a landscaper or a used car salesman. But he became an astronaut, a history-making man of space, whose course may have been charted long before he was born.

And even now, 48 years after becoming the second person to set foot on the moon, Aldrin is blazing new trails.

The West Point graduate, MIT scholar, Air Force pilot, Korean War veteran, NASA hero, foundation founder and children’s book author will be the grand marshal for the 2017 New York City Veterans Day Parade on Saturday.

A community of grads, parents, and friends PDF Print E-mail

WP-ORG Members:

Once again, we're in the midst of our semi-annual fund drive. Please donate to FD42: http://www.west-point.org/donate/

At this moment, we're almost 80% to our goal. Thanks to each and every one of you who have donated! You're getting this message because you are on one of our e-mail lists that serve classes, societies, parent clubs, and friends of West Point or other military-related organizations. You do not have to donate in order to use any of our services, but we exist because of those who do find value and have the means to contribute.

Each time I write one of these fund-raising messages, I think of the ways that helping WP-ORG for the past 20 years has returned more to me than I had ever anticipated. Being part of this 30,000+ community of people who are connected to West Point and our military is a source of inspiration. I've met grads from a wide range of classes, become more involved in the Leaders' Conference at West Point, and have re-established relationships with classmates and friends. It's my experience and belief that reaffirming these connections with grads and parents who share a love of West Point and the military plays an vital part of reaffirming our connections with our alma mater.

Continue to use WP-ORG to reconnect with friends and classmates, and please donate if you can -- your donation to FD42 supports WP-ORG operations through March 2018. To donate via credit card or PayPal, learn more about the budget and see the donation report:

WP-ORG: Service PDF Print E-mail
Bottom Line Up Front: It's that time of year again - the twice annual justification for the existence of WP-ORG through your continued support. Please donate to FD42: http://www.west-point.org/donate/ 

WP-ORG is, at it's very core, the ultimate service organization.  At it's inception, it was the only internet based communication tool bringing grads together, and allowing parents a peek inside the window of life for the cadets.  

While many other social media platforms have sprung up in the past two decades, WP-ORG remains alone in the standard of service it has established for itself.

Real people...

People who care about West Point volunteer their time to moderate Class forums.  Real people work to set up the credit card sites so Class reunions can run efficiently, so Society and Parent Club events can occur seamlessly, so the cadets can purchase tickets to take the bus to the airports for leave / pass.  

Real people answer the call - be it a technical issue to the solved, or, as is often the case with me, a reminder of where I can find something within the system.

WP-ORG has an army of volunteers, but only three employees - and one of those is part time.  It takes people to man those phones, keep the servers humming, create credit card sites for reunions, Class/Society/Club functions, process the firearms licenses, etc, etc., etc. - and it's done all so efficiently with the 2.5 employees of WP-ORG - Jack Price, a '64 grad who can, at time, be cantankerous, perhaps only for show, as there's usually with a grin on his face and a twinkle in his eye - and oh, the stories he can tell of the mischievous things he's done; Megan Klein, his daughter, the magician who keeps the wheels of WP-ORG humming smoothly, who builds the numerous websites and credit card sites, feeds the ornery servers, kicking them into submission when needed and cajoling them into remaining operational; and Dian Welle, the "voice" of WP-ORG, the person behind the phone or the computer question line, who has a "can do / I can fix that" attitude and resolves issues quickly and efficiently, or finds out who can.

WP-ORG - real people doing an amazing job serving the West Point community and filling the needed niche of safe, secure communication.
