Meet Our Charities

The MOAA Foundation and MOAA Scholarship Fund are both charitable subsidiaries of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). Read more about our missions and the work these charities do for the uniformed services community.

The MOAA Foundation creates, enhances, expands, and supports high-impact, proven-successful programs and services that enable 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. The foundation funds these programs and services through philanthropic contributions from the American people, corporations, MOAA members along with Councils and Chapters, those who seek to assist members of the military community, and additional organizations that support our mission. Your donation will go to the greatest need to include COVID-19 assistance and emergency relief, among the other programs the foundation currently supports.

The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) established the MOAA Scholarship Fund in 1948 and to this day continues to provide education assistance to children of both officer and enlisted personnel. Those dependents who meet the requirements and qualifications to receive these scholarships and further educational assistance benefits encompass one of the association's founding principles: education is the cornerstone of a strong democracy. It is funded by donations from MOAA members, Councils and Chapters, corporations, and others with a desire to help military families.
