Transparent logo

The DeliverFund logo is significant to all involved.

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).”

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.

Amor Sierra

Amor Sierra worked in the corporate world for 22 years. She left her home in Miami, Florida to climb the corporate ladder in Texas for a number of years. Through an unwavering work ethic, determination, and business savvy expertise, she climbed high and was very successful. However, she felt God calling her to do something else and in 2012 Amor decided to listen. Without a plan, she left behind her thriving success and came home to Miami to dive into full time ministry; helping to encourage others to learn about and know Jesus at Calvary Kendall as a volunteer. During this time she became aware about the horrors of human trafficking and through research and volunteering she found out about victim’s being branded by their captures and was stirred to action. She soon connected with Chris Baker of Ink 180 – a pioneering ministry that removes the tattoos used for branding victims of sex trafficking. Instantly Amor felt that this was the area God had moved her to work in and soon after in 2013 she opened the doors of Miami Tattoo Co. © ™ with the specific purpose of working with survivors of human trafficking who have been branded. Today, she not only works with human trafficking survivors, but her studio also helps cutting survivors, breast cancer survivors, and former gang members by removing or covering up tattoos. Amor is also a part of the South Florida Human Trafficking Task Force and helps by volunteering with other local organizations to bring awareness to the community.
