The MOAA Foundation (TMF)

In 2015, MOAA, the nation’s most respected and enduring veterans organizations, created The MOAA Foundation (tax ID 46-4219250, CFC No. 86590) to bridge the ever-widening gap between the urgent needs of our nation’s military families and local, state, and national resources addressing those needs.

 

The MOAA Foundation (TMF) creates, enhances, expands, or supports high-impact, proven-successful programs and services enabling the nation’s uniformed servicemembers and veterans of all ranks, and their families, to maintain a quality of life reflective of their selfless service to America.

 

Focusing on 5 key areas- Career Transition, Crisis Relief, Community Outreach, Military Spouse Professional Development, and Professional Education Outreach, TMF has made a difference in the lives of over 100,000 members of the uniformed services community.

MOAA Scholarship Fund

Founded in 1948, the MOAA Scholarship Fund (tax ID No. 54-1659039, CFC No. 11285) supports the Educational Assistance Program that has helped over 16,000 students and has given more than $160 million in benefits in the form of interest-free loans and grants. Support is offered to students who are children of active duty, Reserve, National Guard, or retired military personnel. 

 

Interest-Free Loans: The interest-free loans are renewable annually for up to five years of full-time undergraduate study or until the student receives their first degree (whichever occurs first).

 

Grants: These funds are given to eligible students and do not require repayment. We have multiple grant programs with various eligibility requirements.
