Our Funding Model
Operation Hammond is a unique non-profit organization, and a unique organization requires a unique approach to funding. We have spent a lot of time and thought on our funding model and feel it’s a good fit for us and the convention/event community. It encompasses flexibility, fairness, and service into an easy to understand format. We have come up with a 3 tier approach for funding based on our current/future costs and historical demand for our services. Our 3 tier funding model is an out of the box way we aim to be flexible with conventions and events that want to partner with us and use our services.
Our services are specifically oriented towards pop culture and fan conventions. We are more than just a typical ambulance, EMS service or Social Service. We are better suited and trained to deal with the unique medical/social issues present at pop culture conventions/events. Our standard service agreement is open to negotiation. We aim to be affordable and flexible with everyone we work with. As an organization, we don’t currently have the resources to pay our staffs own way for every event interested in our services. However, our primary goal is to provide excellent service to the nerd and pop culture community. We are committed to being as flexible as possible with the events we partner and work with.
