BEDFORD, Va. (AP) - The National D-Day Memorial Foundation is in the black for the first time since 2008.

The News & Advance (https://bit.ly/1EyK1yH ) reports that the foundation listed a net gain of $193,698 for the 2013 fiscal year on its latest federal income tax return. The 2012 fiscal year ended with a $477,637 deficit.

The nonprofit’s finances were boosted by a 46 percent increase in donations, from $686,506 to $1.2 million.

Barry N. Moore, chair of the foundation’s board, tells the newspaper that the organization fine-tuned its focus for the future.

When he became chairman, Moore says he wanted to emphasize that the memorial in Bedford is the nation’s memorial. To do that, he says the foundation has broadened its message and its marketing.
