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 which is now open on the Community Assistance page. 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 who qualify. Applications are open on the Merit Awards page and awards will be made in May of 2022. 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. The RSAMCC also holds a fundraiser tournament in the spring which is called the Pineapple Open. We also have our GALA and our Vine and Dine at the Ledges event in the spring. These will fund the scholarship and grants awards, but lots of fun is had by all for a good cause. Thank you for being an outstanding Redstone Arsenal community partner, HCMOAA!
