GOOD DEEDS FOUNDATION

History

The Good Deeds Foundation is a 501c3 separated from the MOAACC Board in 2017 led by a President appointed each December by the incoming MOAACC President. The Board is composed of MOAACC members numbering at least five who volunteer to serve each year from January until December. The Board appoints a Vice President and Treasurer or other positions as deemed necessary including coordinators for the three major outreach areas: Active Duty, Students, and Veterans. GDF operates with its own set of by-laws.

Goals, Objectives and Policies

The GDF goal is to use various tools whose mission it is to collect funds to be distributed to active duty military and family, student related JROTC and other units and individuals and veterans needing special assistance in the area, including through other 501c3 organizations like Honor Flight, USO, etc. By so doing the GDF hopes to distribute all funds earned each year to organizations and individuals which merit such support. A modest reserve is kept to offset varied donations in support of our distributions.
