VO Financial’s Co-Founder Forms Against Goliath to Fund Charitable Distributions
VO Financial announced today the incorporation of a not-for-profit entity, Against Goliath, to support its charitable work around the country. Against Goliath will be run by one of VO Financial’s co-founders, and will serve as a charitable foundation to raise funds for local charities near each of VO Financial’s five offices nationwide. A portion of the funds received by VO Financial will be allocated to Against Goliath’s foundation. Plans are in place for Against Goliath to apply for 501(c)(3) status so that the organization can approach other charitable organizations to distribute proceeds and so that contributions to the foundation by VO Financial and individual contributors will be tax deductible.
“We are so blessed to be able to help so many people,” said Ashley Lacerda, Against Goliath’s founder and co-founder of VO Financial. “Through the work we do at VO Financial, we make money by helping people, and that is so gratifying. I am excited that Against Goliath gives us an entity that will allow us to fund the charitable work we are already doing and expand that good work through direct funding via Against Goliath to charitable organizations and individuals in need.
With locations in New Jersey, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Indiana, VO Financial is more equipped now to support its mission to help timeshare owners who have incurred substantial debt as a result of their timeshare developer’s deceptive and/or fraudulent sales tactics. A significant portion of VO Financial’s mission is to support the communities where its offices are located through charitable work and fundraising. The company’s focus on giving back to the community is a breath of fresh air in the timeshare industry.
