The OSC is a group of volunteers that are married to Air Force Officers, and seek to love and care for our military community. Here at Mountain Home, we serve a small town in Idaho and care for the thousands of family members stationed here in various ways. There are 17 positions on our board of chairman and we work as a team to keep our non-profit running lean and mean, using a very small portion of our budget for operating expenses. We give away 85% of the money we earn through sales, and 100% of the proceeds from all fundraising events! You can read more about how our charitable club operates here.
How to we get the money we give away:
We own and operate a small Thrift Shop on Mountain Home AFB, where we take in donations from families here on base, and re-sell them to our military's community at garage sale prices. This give our families the opportunity to clean out their unwanted items, as well as to purchase items for their family at a bargain. We make roughly $4000 a month, and use only 15% of it for operating expenses.
We are a 501(c)3:
Therefore, every donation we receive is tax deductible! If you choose to donate to our charity, we'd love to provide you with a receipt for your generosity! Please email OSCpresidentMHAFB@gmail.com and you will get a receipt with our EIN for your tax records. If you or your business would like to partner with us in a recurring donation or discuss how our charity can use a grant please send an email to OSCpresidentMHAFB@gmail.com.
Ways to donate:
Our favorite way to take donations is in the form of a check addressed to our non profit. This reduces the amount of your generosity going to merchant fees: Officers Spouses Club P.O. Box 4064 Mountain Home AFB, Idaho 83648
For your convenience, we also have a non-profit account with Paypal for credit transfers. Be aware that they still take 1.9% from each transaction. At the top of the page, you'll see our Paypal link for donating.
