WP-ORG: Our Mission Remains the Same

WP-ORG members:

We’re three weeks into our 45th semi-annual fundraiser and are already 75% to our goal. Thanks to those of you that have donated so far. If you’ve found value in our services and would like to contribute, please go to https://secure.west-point.org/donate/ or review the HOW TO DONATE section below for more details.

You might only know WP-ORG as the provider of an email list that you are on, but we do many things. In fact, WP-ORG has bee helping grads, parents, and friends of West Point communicate and stay connected for 23 years! During those years, we’ve seen the use of the internet evolve — as well as the offerings by WP-ORG — but our mission remains the same: West-Point.Org (WP-ORG), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, provides an online communications infrastructure that enables graduates, parents, and friends of the military academy to maintain and strengthen the associations that bind us together. We will provide this community any requested support, consistent with this purpose, as quickly and efficiently as possible.

One way we do this is to provide the infrastructure at no charge (supported by your generous donations during fund drives and the continuous work of numerous volunteers) to run one of the most popular open-source website software packages that classes, societies, and parents clubs are using right now — WordPress. WordPress makes it very easy to create a sophisticated web sites and easily post up-to-date articles. Some examples on WP-ORG right now are:

Each new society, class, or club that wants to have one of these simply needs to send a message to feedback@west-point.org and ask. We’ll set it up and give you the keys. If there is something else that you need, please ask — we’ll see what we can do.
HOW TO DONATE: If you’ve found value in our services, here is how you can donate and keep WP-Org serving all graduates, parents, and friends of the military academy for the next six months:
