The Redstone Arsenal Military and Civilians’ Club (RSAMCC) is a volunteer organization that "salutes" those who have served our country and promotes education, community, and social welfare. We recognize we have an obligation to use our funds wisely, and to ensure that we donate to organizations that reflect our club’s values, practice good stewardship, and meet the needs of the local military community. There are many worthy causes that deserve support and our club funds are limited, therefore, we use the following criteria in making funding decisions. Please provide as much detailed information as possible (such as program brochures, materials, website, social media, etc...) to aid in the community grant decision-making process.
RSAMCC Community Assistance gives priority to grant requests for Projects/Events that:
• Nonprofit (501(c)(3) Organizations
• Support military, veterans, DoD civilians, and their families (Note: the requesting
organization's mission does not have to specifically focus on the military, just
the project/event for which
funds are being requested.)
• The organization must be located within a 50-mile radius of Redstone Arsenal, Alabama
• Meet practical, tangible needs
• Impact multiple people, not just one or a few individuals
• Reflect excellence, innovation, and effectiveness
Limitations: Donations will NOT be provided to/for the following:
• Individuals (only for 501(c)(3) organizations)
• Normal operating expenses (including salaries, overhead, office supplies, or advertising)
• Fundraising Activities
• Completed expenditures
• Goods or services that could be obtained using appropriated funds (no event food or beverage).
• Political parties or activities
Funds donated are to be used for the sole purpose for which they were requested and may not be used to fund other needs not identified in the original request. Funds must be deposited within 90 days of receipt of check. If any portion of received funding is no longer needed for the requested purpose, unused funds will be returned to RSAMCC.
