San Clemente Military Family Outreach

Ways to Donate

Donations of your time and/or treasure are always very much appreciated! SCMFO is a small but mighty non-profit with very grounded annual goals and targets. 100% of our operating funds come from individuals and organizations with similar objectives – to help military families in instances where urgent needs are not being met by military resources. Below you will find a wide range of ways to help San Clemente Military Family Outreach accomplish it’s Mission, and maybe your’s too!

Unlike many other non-profit organizations, 96% of our annual disbursements represent funds that go directly to benefit our Military Family Client’s emergency needs. That means a substantial portion of your donation goes straight to assist someone who really needs help! Because of this, your donation is fully tax deductible (for more information see Federal and State Tax Exemption)
