The El Paso MOAA Outreach Foundation was established in 2013 by El Paso MOAA members as a 501(c)3 philanthropic organization to fund and enhance MOAA activities; educate and encourage participation in key legislative issues; sponsor educational scholarships and support local military units (including ROTC and JROTC units) functions and events.  Since its inception, the Outreach Foundation has supported these endeavors largely through the generosity of El Paso MOAA members and friends.   We are writing you to solicit your continued support.

This year the Outreach Foundation will again use Giving Tuesday, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, as its major fundraising outreach.   This special day was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.   In the past two years, El Paso MOAA members have donated over $ 10,000 dollars which were used to support Ft Bliss MWR/1st Armored Division Activities, ROTC/JROTC programs, the Armed Services YMCA and other endeavors in the El Paso MOAA community.  The Foundation expresses our sincere thanks for these generous donations. 

This year, we are counting on your support on Giving Day 2020 (Tuesday, 1 December 2020). Our goal is to raise $10,000 for projects that your Foundation supports in 2021.  You may donate online at: https://www.elpasomoaa.org  or by returning your donation with the return envelope that was mailed to you earlier in the month. Thank you in advance for your generous gifts.
