Over the years Federalist Builders LLC has been donating funds, material, and time to several local and national charities and nonprofit organizations. We wanted to do more and looked for ways that would allow us to make larger impact and could include employees, clients, friends, vendors, and contractors.
Inspired by my father’s completion of the Pan Mass challenge that strives to raise $40 Million annually for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund, we decided to set up the Federalist Fund that will sponsor a team to bike in century rides to help raise funds for a wide range of charities.
In 2014 we will be participating in at least 4 scheduled rides, The Casa River Century on May 17th, The Prouty on July 12th, The Ride to Conquer Cancer on September 12th and 13th, and The Tour De Cure on September 27th. We invite you to participate with Federalist Builders LLC through the Federalist Fund by signing up to ride any and all of these events or by helping us with whatever donations you are able to give.
All donations to these rides are tax deductible. Riding with or donating on behalf of The Federalist Fund will be rewarded with Federalist Builders and Federalist Fund gear.
CASA RIVER CENTURY
This first ride of the year helps support Casa of the Eastern Panhandle. CASA is a nationwide program that stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. After a rigorous training program, CASA volunteers are appointed to investigate cases when children have been removed from their homes because of abuse and/or neglect. CASA of the Eastern Panhandle (CASA-EP) was established in 2003. Since then, CASA-EP has trained over 95 volunteers and advocated for nearly 319 children in Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan Counties. Our long-term goal is to increase our base of active volunteers, so we can serve all of the children in the Eastern Panhandle who are removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect and who need our help.

The Second ride of the year helps raise money for the Dartmouth Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The Prouty began in 1982 when four nurses rode their bicycles 100 miles to honor an inspiring patient, Audrey Prouty. Prouty died that year, nine years after her diagnosis with ovarian cancer. That same year, a new organization emerged with the mission of supporting Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center: Friends of Norris-Cotton Cancer Center.
In 1982, the four nurses raised $4,000. By 2013, more than 6,000 participants and volunteers were each year teaming up with more than 100 corporate sponsors for a combined 32-year fundraising total of more than $20 million and almost $2.8 Million in 2013 alone.

TOUR DE CURE: AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION
Our final planned ride of the year helps support the American Diabetes Association, the nation’s leading 501(C)3 nonprofit charity fighting against diabetes and its deadly consequences. Nearly 26 million children and adults in this country are diagnosed with diabetes, so the mission is an urgent one. Everything they do forms the underpinning for that mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. This is the first year that they are holding an event in DC.
