Request Contribution to NCOA Disaster Relief Fund
September 19, 2020
I hope you all are doing well and keeping safe. Please read, consider supporting and share this information with your members and others. With the Hurricanes and Fires erupting on the West Coast I'm putting out a call to consider donating to the NCOA Disaster Relief Fund. We assisted a couple members in Oregon. To donate you can go to our website, Contact Headquarters directly or send in check or money order to NCOA Hqs. Any amount of donation will be appreciated.
Please keep in mind the purpose of the Funds: The NCOA Disaster Relief Fund was established in 1994 to assist enlisted military personnel with immediate disaster-related expenses. Grants have been awarded to personnel in all branches of the Armed Forces to include Guard and Reserve Components to assist with emergency needs in bombing situations, fires, floods, hurricanes, typhoons and tornadoes.
The Disaster Relief Fund is funded entirely through donations from our members and chapters and is a certified Texas Non-Profit Corporation, Federal ID # 74-2756133. The Fund is designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) corporation and, as such, all contributions to the Fund are deductible to the extent provided by Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations received are used for grants and no administrative or overhead expenses come out of the donations received.
The Fund fills a very real void in emergency assistance…
To submit a request for assistance from the Disaster Relief Fund, the individual’s NCOA chapter chairman or chain of command (First Sergeant, Chief, Sergeant Major, etc.) must submit a narrative of the individual’s situation to NCOA Headquarters for review and determination of eligibility. Amount of grant depends on the funds available. Requests can be submitted via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via fax to 210-637-3337.
