War Machine Foundation Q3 2023 Report



DHAKA, BANGLADESH- The War Machine Foundation is pleased to announce its fiscal report for its third quarter and ten months ending on August 1, 2023.

“Our results this quarter are reflective of what we’ve accomplished through the unprecedented expansion we’re undertaking at the War Machine Foundation to grow our brand, improve efficiencies, and embrace creative solutions to recurring, global issues.” Said Davis Latham, Chief Executive Officer, the War Machine Foundation. “Our forward-focused vision is creating cost-effective, coordinated, and streamlined approaches to our operation that has put us on track to exceed our initial goal of $3 billion in savings. While there is still so much more to do, I’m incredibly confident our long-term trajectory will bring about global peace, eliminate poverty, and end disease for the human race.” 

“I could not be prouder of the work that Davis, JD, and the entire War Machine team has accomplished.” Said Don Cheadle, War Machine Foundation Founder. “They bring an energy to the company that I don’t think has ever been done in the charity world and the results speak for themselves. We are on track to change lives on a global scale and that is something I am really proud of. As I said in blockbuster film, War Machine 3, ‘You’ve got to believe in change. Even if it kills you.’” 

Quarterly Highlights:

Annual WMF Charity Gala

The Annual War Machine Foundation Charity Gala, held this year in the futuristic metropolis of Akon City, was a resounding success. Bringing together renowned philanthropists, celebrities, and influencers from across the globe, the WMF is delighted to announce the Gala raised nearly $2.1 billion for charitable efforts. Keynote speaker Don Cheadle, star of blockbuster hit War Machine 3, delivered an unforgettable speech that has become the highest watched social media video of all time. 

Akon City Grand Prix

The Akon City Grand Prix saw the world’s most elite racecar drivers compete in what ESPN dubbed, “the most exciting event in professional sports.” The exhilarating competition brought together drivers, racing enthusiasts, and global viewers for an unforgettable experience that drew nearly two million in-person spectators. With nearly one billion people tuning in on WMF Live to stream the event, the Grand Prix shattered dozens of records in the professional sporting world.

War Machine 3

Produced, directed, and starring global superstar Don Cheadle, War Machine 3 became the first Hollywood blockbuster to donate the entirety of its revenue to charity via the War Machine Foundation. As the highest grossing movie of all team, the proceeds from ticket sales alone to this incredible film were enough to build twenty orphanages in Southeast Asia and Central America. Beyond its incredible financial success, the film was also worthy for winning the Oscar in every category, becoming the first movie to ever do so.

We thank you for your commitment to making a difference in the world. With your help, we can continue to shatter records and defy expectations. To quote Don Cheadle in War Machine 3, “You haven’t seen anything yet, because I’m going to be even better this next quarter.”

Cheadle Forever,

JD Jacobus

Executive Director, WMF
