Our goal is to promote social welfare by focusing on our members and “giving back” to our community in the form of volunteering and providing donations through Community Assistance Grants, Outreach and Merit Awards.
The Redstone Arsenal Military and Civilians’ Club sponsors Community Assistance Grants for non-profit organizations that request money for events that directly support active duty military, veterans, DoD civilians, their families, and their community. Applicants must reside within a 50 mile radius of Redstone Arsenal. Organizations are encouraged to check eligibility requirements. If eligible, fill out a Community Assistance Grant Application. The 2020 -2021 form is available on the community assistance page. Grant applications will be accepted from after the new year. This year there is one grant cycle with awards being disbursed in May 2021. For further information, email the Community Assistance Grant chair.
The Club also awards Merit scholarships to military spouses continuing their education, graduating high school seniors and currently attending college students. Applications will be accepted starting January 2021 and the open period runs through Feb.28, 2021 and awards will be made in May 2021. For further information email the Merit Award chair.
Applicants for both awards must reside within a 50 mile radius of Redstone Arsenal.
Redstone Arsenal Military & Civilians’ Club is a private nonprofit 501(c)4 organization not affiliated with RSA or the US Army.
Fundraising for Merit Awards
While there are many fundraising efforts that benefit our annual Merit Awards, we are so grateful for the continued support of the Huntsville Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America. They have been supporting military families and efforts in the Tennessee Valley since 1961. The Chapter has earned a Five Star Level of Excellence Award for the last six years in a row and are committed to serving all officers and their families in the Redstone community–retired, currently serving and veterans.
Every fall they host a golf tournament to raise funds for the combined scholarship fund awards in the spring. Our members volunteer beside MOAA chapter members for a silent auction, registration, golf hole monitoring, and more to ensure a successful event. With covid affecting our event calendar we are moving our tournament which is called the Pineapple Open to the Spring. This will fund the scholarship awards, but lots of fun is had by all for a good cause. Check back soon for an update. Thank you for being an outstanding Redstone Arsenal community partner, HCMOAA!
RSAMCC Community Outreach
We are trying to bring back a program to hopefully increase participation in our outreach programs, which are so helpful within the communities that assist Redstone Arsenal. We hope to have more news on this when our Luncheons return......
