USAA Sponsorship for MOAA

We’re fortunate -- our affinity associate, USAA, recognizes that many noteworthy community focused programs and events initiated by MOAA Councils and Chapters need financial support to “get to the finish line”! So, USAA in partnership with MOAA National, has established a fund to provide some financial backing to councils and chapters.

Please note you must be an affiliate (chapter or council) in good standing with MOAA National to qualify for the program. Each council and each chapter may make one request per calendar year. The council must be at the state level; the program does not apply to area and regional subsets of the council system.

To fair share the funding across the council and chapter system, the maximum you can expect is $300 to support your chapter event or $800 to support your state council event. Please note the council and chapter cannot make a request for the same event. For instance, the council should not make a request for $800 to support the state convention and then the host chapter make a similar request for $300 to support the same state convention.

Please read the instructions below and the frequently asked questions and answers before proceeding to the online submission form.

Step 1: Determine whether your project or program meets the established guidelines for USAA/MOAA sponsorship funding support. Generally, the event must be something that serves the community at large and extends beyond your immediate council and chapter. Some examples which would meet the spirit and intent of the program would be state council conventions; chapter events which recognize ROTC/JROTC students and enhance relationships with those schools; and golf tournaments or fundraising events for chapter scholarship or awards programs. Some examples which do not meet the criteria for funding support would be political or advocacy events; stand-alone chapter recruiting activities; chapter luncheon/dinner events to offset chapter member meal costs; and direct contributions to your chapter scholarship program.

Step 2: Gather all the information you will need to complete the online form. The required information will include name and date of event, location, expected attendees, brief description and summary of your community service project/program needs, how you plan to recognize USAA and your council/chapter contact information.

Step 3: Complete the form and submit. You will receive an email that confirms your request and lets you know when you can expect an answer. MOAA National will review all requests for appropriate use of funding. If MOAA national has any questions or requires additional clarification, they will contact the POC listed on the form via email or phone, prior to forwarding to USAA for approval.

Step 4: MOAA National forwards the sponsorship request to USAA for final approval. The council and chapter will be notified promptly, if the request has been denied. Upon approval, USAA will disburse funds to the council/chapter 5-7 days prior to the actual event. As a reminder, please note that in return for USAA’s sponsorship, you accept a commitment to recognize USAA as a sponsor or contributor at the applicable event. We anticipate many requests so we ask that you

allow at least 45 business days for processing. To fair share the funding across the council and chapter system, the maximum you can expect is $300 to support your chapter event or $800 to support your state council event.
