SMART is a not-for-profit, IRS 501(c)(19), Veterans Travel organization and like other non-profit organizations rely on sources other than dues for financial support. Most of our members have enjoyed many years of SMART caravans, musters, and other activities and are strong, life-long believers in our motto Seeing the Country We Defend. SMART members are generous with their time and often donate to veteran organizations, schools, and many worthwhile charities. The Board of Directors approved a Donation Program to help broaden our revenue base. Although SMART is a not-for-profit corporation, contributions are not tax deductible. Like many organizations that support veterans and help enrich their and our lives, SMART is a worthy recipient of your special financial support.
2. How to Donate
SMART Members and their families can donate to SMART in many ways... One time, Regular, and Legacy Donations. We are continuing to investigate how SMART could handle Automobile, Boat or RV donations.
- Donate Online. You can pay online via PayPal or mail a check to SMART Headquarters. When you make a donation, you will be asked whether you desire to remain anonymous, or have your donation acknowledged on SMARTs website, Traveler or E-News.
- Sign up to make regular, periodic ACH donations via your banks Bill-Payer system.
- Legacy. Many members are enjoying the camaraderie of SMART in their golden years and would like to ensure our organization continues for the enjoyment of their families and all veterans. Some may want to include a portion of their estate by specifying a donation in their wills and trusts. To arrange this, please contact your estate planning legal personnel and inform SMART headquarters.
- Automobile, Boat or RV. If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact SMARTs Second VP to discuss the location, feasibility and practicality of the donation.
