RCPT - USA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax exempt organization. Our Tax Exempt EIN is 30-0774408
We welcome all donations!
RCPT-USA members incur significant out-of-pocket expenses in honoring paratroopers that have preceded them. They purchase their own reenactment uniforms, parachutes, and pay their own travel to training and Airshow events. Parachutes cost around $1,000 each, reserves must be repacked every 6 months at $70 each, distinctive historical uniforms - $200, WW2 helmets - $150, and brown Corcoran jump boots are $180. Our average member's investment in equipment to participate in an airshow is typically over $1,500. None of our members or staff are paid employees, and all volunteer their time to perform training, jumpmaster duties, and participate in education or public events.
Any donation to offset the price of equipment, travel costs, team insurance, coordination costs, aviation radios, and drop zone gear is greatly appreciated. This enables RCPT-USA to reach more audiences and continue to participate in veteran's outreach and community engagement while supporting the legacy of the Airborne!
Corporate sponsors are always welcome. Please contact us at [email protected] regarding benefits - to include special access to events, aircraft, and recognition.
