The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association® (CVMA®) is an all-volunteer organization. Our members join for support, camaraderie, and/or to fulfill the moto “Vets Helping Vets”. Our officers serve out of a desire to make a positive impact in a worthwhile organization. No one gets paid. We do it because we value and respect our fellow veterans. We honor the sacrifices that they – and their families – have made and continue making for the United States of America.

Our chapter is a local, direct service organization. We provide service and support directly to veterans and their families. We do not maintain a “war chest” for political action campaigns; we leave that work to much larger and more general veteran service organizations. Instead, we keep our operating expenses low so that we can direct funds towards programs and efforts that have an impact on the lives of veterans and their families. We prefer to focus our support on those closest to us, fighting alongside the veteran and veterans family members in their battles – battles like preventing veteran suicide, supporting housing and rehabilitation programs for homeless veterans and those tortured by substance abuse, improving access for veterans injured in combat, and caring for widows and orphans of service members killed in action.

The CVMA® is supported entirely from annual member dues and donations from individuals and local businesses. Your donation is not in exchange for a service or a tangible product and is not refundable. However, you can rest assured that we put every donation to this local Combat Veterans chapter to good use. So, whether you give a one-time gift or monthly contributions,; whether your gift is $50.00, $100.00, $500.00, or more, or even of a lesser amount; your donation will directly benefit veterans and issues affecting veterans. 

Donations to CVMA® Chapter 18-1 can be made quickly, easily, and securely via PayPal, by credit/debit card direct bank transfer without a PayPal account, or through your PayPal account. We do not retain any credit card or bank information — all of that is processed directly through PayPal’s secure servers.

Our chapter is a tax-exempt organization per 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code and your contribution may be tax-deductible. We recommend that you speak with your tax adviser about your particular tax situation. If you leave your address on the PayPal screen, we will generate a donation confirmation letter and mail it to you. If you’d prefer, you can e-mail us with your name, address, date of donation, and donation amount, and we can either e-mail or mail you a confirmation letter.

As a final thought: people thank us for our service

and we thank YOU for your support.
