A team for PETER MAYHEW FOUNDATION
"501st Legion and the Peter Mayhew Foundation, a 'Force' for good!"
The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.
While the 501st Legion is not a registered non-profit charity organization, we work in partnership with the Peter Mayhew Foundation in many of our Charity and Fundraising events. Our partnership with the Peter Mayhew Foundation allows us to offer an option for a tax deductible donation receipt directly through the Peter Mayhew Foundation on behalf of the 501st!
The Peter Mayhew Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to the alleviation of disease, pain, and suffering by providing its available resources directly to deserving children and adults in need.
