About Us

Hero is a marketing and e-commerce company for non profits.  We are focused on providing a new market that non profits can offer to their existing and new supporters to greatly increase their "in-kind-donation" capabilities and efficiencies.

The initial leadership team at Hero is made up of all volunteers.  We are a group of friends from the United States Air Force Academy, Annapolis, West Point and various financial institutions where we have worked together.  Our passion is to serve others, and to be as impactful as possible in helping our non profit clients execute their mission every day.

Our vision is that our clients never have a tangible need again...Hero is the solution.
