GOOD DEEDS FOUNDATION

History

The MOAACC Good Deeds Foundation (GDF, TIN: 46-5148264), is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization supporting the aims of the Cape Canaveral Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAACC).  It has provided direct support and grants to area military (primarily in enlisted ranks), veterans, and their families; ROTC, JROTC, Sea Cadet, Civil Air Patrol, and Young Marines; and other Veteran organizations and groups since 1987.  In 2019, GDF provided grants totaling $50,000 in support of these aims.

Goals, Objectives and Policies

The goal of GDF is to help support active duty military and family, student related ROTC/JROTC and other units, and individuals and veterans needing special assistance in the area, including other non-profit organizations (e.g. Honor Flight, USO, etc.).  GDF endeavors to distribute all funds raised each year to organizations and individuals which merit such support.  A modest reserve is kept annually, for funding to begin the following year. The GDF program is administered through a President, appointed annually by the MOAACC President, and a Board of Directors, consistent with Federal and State law.  All GDF Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers to ensure nearly all of the donated funds go toward their intended recipients.
