The Power of a Simple Gift of Cash
See Your Generosity in Action
One of the easiest and most common ways for you to support the USO is with a gift of cash. Cash can be used to provide comfort and family connections to our service members in the form of:
An outright gift. By making a cash gift by check, credit card or money order today, you enable us to meet our most urgent needs and offer a continuum of support to our men and women in uniform throughout their journey of service. You will have the opportunity to see your generosity in action and will also receive a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
A payable on death (POD) account. A POD bank account or certificate of deposit names one or more persons or charities as the beneficiary of all funds when you, the account owner, pass away. The beneficiary you name has no rights to the funds until after your lifetime. Until that time, you remain in control and are free to use the money in the bank account, change the beneficiary or close the account.
There are several other ways to make cash donations as part of the gift types below. To learn more, click on the links below.
