The Executive Management of USPA Nationwide Security, philanthropists Daniel Manning (CEO), Brian Fitzgibbons (VP), and Michael Evans, the founder, have pledged to donate $75,000+ per month for investigations and rescues of missing children across the country.
A growing number of American businesspeople have pledged to give away the majority of their wealth to charitable causes. Among them are Manning, Fitzgibbons, and Evans. By following in the footsteps of Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, who donated $3 billion to charity, and Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife Mackenzie Scott, who gave away a $55 million mansion, USPA owners have committed to giving away their earned profits for 17 years. The company will donate up to $1 million a year to locate and rescue missing children, “a charitable cause we can all support,” explained Manning.
“In the past, I have always worked hard to earn as much money as possible, just to give it away,” said Michael Evans. Evans refers to his life’s purpose, which has been everything to him throughout his life. “We worked hard and were rewarded for our efforts only for a few minutes, leading us to our next mission.”
Under the leadership of Manning and Fitzgibbons, USPA Nationwide Security has continued to fulfill its philanthropic mission. In addition to their monetary contributions, they devote a substantial amount of their personal time to the investigation of missing children’s cases. According to USPA’s Vice President, Brian Fitzgibbons, missing children’s cases are often a precursor to human trafficking. Our work aims to address the root of the problem, which is that, in many cases, teen runaways are being manipulated by traffickers, who often appear in troubled teens’ lives through social media platforms when they are seeking understanding or attention.”
Kingsman Philanthropic Corp. will benefit from USPA’s pledge. As a result of the lack of funding from outside sources, the nonprofit will be able to perform rescues in the future. “USPA stands ready to support Kingsman with profits generated by our nationwide security guard program, fire watch program, and Titanium (celebrity executive protection), which will be utilized to locate missing children for years to come,” said Daniel Manning, CEO of USPA.
In 2020, Forbes Magazine featured USPA’s philanthropic arm, Kingsman, as part of its cover story. Since USPA operated in the shadows for decades, it receives more calls for free service than it can handle on its own. Manning explains that “Funding has always been a conversation stopper,” from their Witness Protection Program and domestic violence escapes to their recovery from human trafficking.
