Jeremy Mahugh Show Page
Jeremy Mahugh
Co-Founder | Executive Vice President - DeliverFund
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.
Nik McKinley Show Page
Nic McKinley
Founder | Executive Director - DeliverFund
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.

Daniela Barca
NY school official’s denial of student club is the definition of hostility toward religion and is patently illegal
Daniela Barca is a 14-year-old freshman at Roy C. Ketcham High School, outside of Wappingers Falls, New York. This school year, Daniela sought to form a student club at her school. Daniela simply wants to form a club so those who share her faith can express who they are and encourage each other, but school officials refuse to follow the law and approve her club because it is religious. First Liberty Institute contacted the school superintendent demanding that the school system follow the law and allow Daniela and other religious students to form clubs.

Violation of Equal Access Law
Ketcham High School’s Ongoing Violation of Equal Access Act
In its letter to school officials, First Liberty explains that the Equal Access Act prohibits schools from denying religious clubs’ access to school facilities when access is granted to secular clubs. The letter states, “As the U.S. Supreme Court explained, religious clubs must be afforded the same recognition, access and rights as other noncurricular clubs.”
