ABOUT WE BUILD THE WALL
As a donor to We Build the Wall, you may be interested in how we are organized and how we use your donations to accomplish the missions of the organization. Brian Kolfage founded We Build the Wall, Inc., as a Florida-based 501(c)(4) non-profit, advocacy organization. A 501(c)(4) is a tax-exempt social welfare organization described in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 501(c)(4) as an organization that is not organized for profit and is operated exclusively to promote social welfare.
We Build the Wall has two social welfare missions. The first mission is to build border wall on the southern border of the United States using privately raised funds. We completed our first major wall section in Sunland Park, New Mexico, in June 2019. We constructed a state-of-the-art, 18-foot-tall, steel-bollard border barrier that blocked one of the worst human- and drug-smuggling corridors in the El Paso Sector. The construction of this barrier immediately altered the entire region’s flow of illegal drugs and illegal migrants coming into the United States. Future building projects will have a similar impact in stopping illegal immigration and drug smuggling.
The second mission is an educational one, something common to many 501(c)(4) organizations. As Brian Kolfage put it when We Build the Wall was organized, on January 11, 2019, “Our mission is to unite private citizens that share a common belief in providing national security for our Southern Border through the construction, administration and maintenance of physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States.” Uniting citizens who share our interest in border security requires reaching to like-minded citizens and educating the public about the need for border barriers. With those objectives in mind we hold educational events, such as town halls and symposia. We have been working diligently to raise awareness of the humanitarian crisis at our border and unite all citizens who share our belief in the value of physical barriers on the border.
We are dedicated to accomplishing these missions, no matter how much resistance we face. We are seeing the same attacks from the open-borders Left that President Trump has faced. But rest assured we are not deterred. We will continue to build sections of border wall and educate the public about the need for border wall. Our country’s security depends on it.
As of October 2019, more than 300,000 Americans have stepped forward to join us in accomplishing these missions. The total donation amount raised includes a large chunk of pledged donations that will be given to us upon meeting certain milestones. Roughly $18,500,000 has been received in direct donations, and an additional $6,000,000 has been pledged. Contributions or gifts to We Build the Wall are not tax deductible for IRS purposes. The operations of We Build the Wall are not paid for at taxpayer expense.
