National – 501st Donations
The 501st Legion Make-A-Wish Endowment Fund
In September, 2016, the creation of the 501st Legion Make-A-Wish Endowment Fund was announced. We challenged ourselves to raise $150,000 by September 2021 to grant Star Wars related wishes involving Legion appearances.
WE DID IT! Thanks to YOU and some of our most loyal supporters, we achieved that goal in just 10 months! Thank you so much for supporting the endowment and helping to spread the word. So let’s keep it going!
Now we have a new challenge – a goal of raising a total of $501,000 by September, 2021 in honor of the 501st Legion. This will grant even more wishes each and every year, forever. Your support makes a difference.

Local – Dune Sea Garrison Event Donations
The Dune Sea Garrison has deployed to Tempe, AZ to join in the fight to cure MS for over 15 years, making the MS Walk our longest running annual fund raising event. Arriving at 5:00 am the troops set up their base of operations in the SRP parking lot and prepared for the long march through the desert. At 7:00 am the Empire’s elite line up to begin their march joining with other groups that were also joining in the fight. Stepping off, the Imperial Troops set a blistering pace through the designated battle zone visiting fear upon the evil that is MS. Usually by 9:00 am the 5 mile march through the Phoenix Zoo and Desert Botanical Gardens is completed and the Garrison troops earn every dime donated to the war against MS. While the battle is not won, yet, this battle can only be described as a victory for the Empire’s march to rid the galaxy of MS. Please donate to help the Dune Sea Garrison put an end to the terrible disease!
15 Years and counting!!
