Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) September 23, 2008 -- Affinity4, one of the nation's leading affinity-based marketers specializing in helping charities, ministries and other non-profit organizations raise funds, has partnered with the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV, Columbia, TN) adding the organization to its growing roster of affinity marketing partners. The SCV is dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of the citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederacy during the War Between the States. Affinity4 will assist the SCV in continuing its noble mission by helping the organization generate funds through its members' ordinary purchases of various telecommunications products and services provided by Affinity4. They include wireless service, long distance and digital phone services, high speed Internet, as well as DIRECTV®, and motorist assistance. For each purchase made by SCV members, all of whom are male descendants, either collateral or direct line, of any soldier, sailor or marine who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces, Affinity4 will give back 10% of the proceeds to the SCV.
The contributions generated through SCV's Affinity4 partnership will be instrumental in helping the organization fund its ongoing programs at the local, state and national levels offering members a wide range of activities. Among the programs and services provided by SCV are: monthly meetings with historic programs at approximately 860 local camps in cities and towns around the country, preservation work on monuments and at cemeteries, marking Confederate soldiers' graves, and scholarly publications. Some SCV members also participate in historical re-enactments of battles. The SCV holds an annual Reunion/convention each summer to conduct organization business, to recognize the efforts of its volunteers and to listen to True Confederate History presentations. State level SCV organizations, known as Divisions, also hold annual conventions and publish newsletters available to their members.
SCV members receive a bi-monthly national history oriented magazine, the Confederate Veteran. Both male and female descendants of Confederate soldiers may apply for a limited number of one time grants, given each year, to help finance their higher education expenses through the General Stand Watie Scholarship program.
