Donate to DEF
DEF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization run by a team of 100% volunteers. This means that all donations go directly back to our members in the form of national programs and services that provide opportunities to inspire, connect and empower!
As we continue to implement the mission of DEF and focus on empowering members to change the culture in the national security ecosystem, we recognize the need to provide real value back to our members. Proceeds from generous donations fund key programs like the Firestarter Fellowship and the Hopper Program, provide financial assistance for DEF events, implement Community Advisory initiatives, and support new pilot programs created by and for you, our members!
