2020 USAA Sponsorship

Our affinity partner USAA supports MOAA councils and chapters by providing financial backing for community-focused programs and events.

Please note you must be an affiliate (chapter or council) in good standing with MOAA National to qualify for the program. Each affiliate may request support for one program per calendar year. Proposed events must benefit the entire community represented by the affiliate (i.e., the whole state for a council event, not just part of the state).

The maximum awards are $300 to support a chapter event and $800 to support a 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 these established guidelines. 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. Please submit request as soon as possible, but no later than 30 business days before the event. MOAA National will review all requests for appropriate use of funding and will contact the POC listed on the form via email or phone if further information is needed.

Step 4: The affiliate will be notified of approval decision within 15 business days from date of submitting the application. Funds will be transferred via Electronic Funds Transfer within 15 business days of decision. As a reminder, please note that in return for USAA’s sponsorship, the affiliate agrees to recognize USAA as a sponsor or contributor at the event.
