Donations & Planned Giving
Give to the Marines Memorial Association
The Marines’ Memorial Association depends on donations to fulfill our mission to commemorate, educate and serve. Donations may be made by anyone, including members, non-members, businesses, organizations and foundations. These donations are used for armed forces support in the form of scholarships, care packages, community events, educational forums and more.
Donations made to the Marines Memorial Association can be either "unrestricted" or designated for a certain program. Some of these programs include:
- Gold Star Parents Event, held annually, where parents of fallen soldiers come together and learn how to cope with their devastating losses
- Care Packages, which are sent overseas three times a year packed with personal items, food, and morale boosters
- Commemorative Events
- Current Event Lectures and Author Forums
- Active Duty Aid and Assist Program, which benefit those currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces
For a unique way to commemorate a loved one, donations may also be made In Memory or In Honor of someone special. One of the ways to remember your loved one is to order a plaque that will be placed on permanent display on the club’s fifth floor "Memorial Hall". All donations may be made by sending a check or by credit card online or over the phone. Donations over $250 are acknowledged in Crossroads and online, while all In Honor and In Memory donations are acknowledged regardless of the amount.
In addition to donations, we also ask our members to set up “Planned Gifts.” These Planned Gifts include bequests, living trusts, and asset and security donations.
The Marines’ Memorial Association’s dedication to providing support, education and services to service members and their families makes us one of the best Veteran Organizations. All donations made to Marines Memorial Association are tax deductible per the IRS because the Association complies fully with IRC 170(c)(3) of the US Tax Code, as an IRC 501(c)(19) Veterans Organization. Our Federal EIN is 94-1055967.
