How to Donate

How to Donate to the Columbia River MOAA Foundation (CRMF)

If you want to make a tax deductible donation to our Support The Troops or Scholarship funds you should make your donations payable to “Columbia River MOAA Foundation” or “CRMF.” Note, if tax deductibility is not a concern for you, you may still lump your donations with your dues and our chapter treasurer will forward them to the CRMF treasurer. Please indicate which fund you desire your donation to go towards. Either way, 100% of your donations will go to the Support The Troops or Scholarship

You can make donations to the CRMF at any Chapter Business Meeting or by mailing your donation to the chapter mail address (P.O. Box 1872, Vancouver, WA 98668) . Questions about stock donations or bequests should be directed to the CRMF President (contact info on website and newsletter).
