There are 327 million people in the United States. Only 1% serve in our military. Since 2001, the start of our nation’s longest war, more than 3 million family members have been left behind as their loved one deployed.

Exhausted military families need our help more than ever. Help us continue our mission of strengthening our nation’s families through programs designed to encourage healing, reduce challenges, and overcome obstacles together.

Through frequent moves, deployments, wartime stress, injury, and loss, military families need your support. Your gift will show these families that together we’re stronger.

Other Ways to Give


IRA Charitable Rollovers

When you are 70 ½ or older and own an IRA there is a great donation option through the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable Rollover. Taxpayers can direct the custodian of their pretax traditional or Roth IRA to transfer up to $100,000 per year to a public charity such as NMFA without having to count that distribution as taxable income. In order for a donation to qualify under the law, you must instruct your financial advisor, bank, or IRA administrator to transfer funds from your traditional or Roth IRAs directly to NMFA and identify you as the IRA account owner/donor, with your name and address on the distribution check or accompanying materials and send it to:

National Military Family Association
2800 Eisenhower Avenue, Suite 250
Alexandria, VA 22314
Tax ID: 52-0899384

Distributions from your traditional or Roth IRA made directly to NMFA can satisfy all or part of this year’s required minimum distribution. Call us at 703.931.6632 or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Simply ask your company if they match these gifts and complete the form provided by your employer. After you fill out the form, send the form with your gift (or send it separately if you make an online donation) to:

Planned Giving

Military families have selflessly supported our service members for generations—and their sacrifices will continue long after any of us are here to show we care.

Planned Giving is a way to support our nation’s families with a pledge for the future. Multiple avenues are available for you to commit to the well-being of military families. Planned Giving also helps to ensure that your family avoids the tax burden associated with funds left behind, and it can:

Operation Purple Camp

Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University. The Center's staff is dedicated to providing every camper an opportunity to feel accepted, valued, and cared about as a member of the summer camp community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting summer camp program that contributes to the development of each camper's character, along with the development of important life skills. Our summer camp experience enables campers to learn these skills while doing a variety of traditional summer camp activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, learning about nature, team challenge course, sports and games, arts and crafts, and archery. Eastern 4-H Center is also outfitted with modern recreational facilities and lodgings to make campers feel comfortable during their stay. We hope your camper will join us for a fun filled week.
