About Us

The meaning behind our logo

Logo

The Manilla* is a significant symbol given its history. Typically a symbol of oppression, within DeliverFund, it is a symbol of hope. 

There are age marks on the DeliverFund Manilla, reminding us that slavery, unfortunately, is not new and not gone or eliminated. In fact, it is one of the oldest and most continued markets in the United States and around the world. 

The ‘notch’ in the top of the DeliverFund Manilla symbolizes the impact DeliverFund intends to have on slavery with each area expansion.

The red line signifies a blood streak; there to remind all of us that we are not the first ones to fight this battle. A horizontal red line is a universal symbol for STOP. 

*The Manilla, which according to Wikipedia were “… penannular armlets, mostly in bronze or copper, very rarely gold, which served as a form of commodity money … among certain West African peoples … This form of African currency also became known as “slave trade money” after the Europeans started using them to acquire slaves for the slave trade into the Americas (as well as England prior to 1807).”

aboutus-testimonial

"DeliverFund offered us at FWPD a training unlike any we have attended. They moved beyond typical human trafficking trainings that focus on "soft" issues such as awareness and statistics, to real intelligence and tactical operations that we use every day in solving cases. One of our challenges in FWPD is a large number of cases and very few officers, which means we need techniques and resources to speed up our cases as well as do operations ourselves. DeliverFund gave us both of those abilities.  Not only did they provide excellent training, DeliverFund's people are some of the most sincere and experienced we have met. Their instructors were excellent and have continued to gladly provide their services even after the training was done. I am excited to continue this relationship and help us move through cases more effectively."

Nic McKinley

As an Operative who served as a Country Chief for a Special Unit within the CIA, Nic witnessed not only the epidemic of child trafficking within illicit markets, but also the unrealized opportunity to apply his understanding and training to influence this global crisis. As Nic began to work with experts to better understand the problem in the United States, he found it impossible to turn a blind eye. As a result, DeliverFund was officially established as a 501c3 in October 2014 and our counter human trafficking organization, focused on ending sex slavery in the United States got to work.

Nic spent 11 years in US Special Operations as an Air Force Pararescueman prior to being recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency. Due to his highly specialized training and experience in both special and intelligence operations, Nic has a firm understanding about these illicit, illegal markets and has the highest levels of training to effectively combat them.

Jeremy Mahugh

Upon learning about Nic’s vision for DeliverFund, Jeremy’s quick and only response was: “Where do I sign? Let’s do this.”

Jeremy spent 10 years in the US Special Operations, where he went on to become and deploy as a Navy SEAL Sniper. After his time in the military, Jeremy returned to the Middle East as an operative for a National Level Intelligence agency for an additional five years. More than 17 deployments later, Jeremy returned home to work on a successful political campaign for a US Congressman, further committing himself to the American values that he upholds. When Nic met Jeremy overseas, it became clear that the two shared a deep sense of mission and mutual sense of duty.

With a wide range of training in Special Operations, experience in the Intelligence community and time spent in the political arena, Jeremy often tells folks that every job he has held has only been to prepare him for the work that he is currently doing for DeliverFund.
