    Small Wars Journal, Operated by Small Wars Foundation

    Small Wars Foundation assumed ownership and operation of Small Wars Journal from Small Wars Journal, LLC on June 1, 2008.

    Small Wars Journal has never been operated with a profit motive. The LLC was a way to get the site started, add rigor to its management, and maybe allow us to keep our houses (and, accordingly, our wives) in the odd chance we pissed off someone with a good lawyer.

    We built it, and you have come. There has been a great response, and we look forward to doing more to serve the community.

    Small Wars Foundation is the right corporate structure for the site to move forward, develop more capabilities, sustain operations, and deliver to its vision. Small Wars Foundation is a Virginia corporation formed exclusively for charitable, educational, and literary purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Federal filing is in process for formal determination of status as a non-profit organization.

    The core vision of the site, outlined on the About page, remains the same. We haven't fired the Editor-in-Chief or Publisher, yet. Other developments to follow.

    - Dave & Bill

    Jon,

    Neither I guess, (maybe a small pat) though it has been an education (Bill does the grunt work) moving through the federal and state bureaucracy. We needed to do this to take the sites, SWJ and SWC, to the next level. More on that to come once we have a hard copy of the 501(c).
