The Upper Merrimack
Valley Medical Reserve Corps joined the National MRC Association
(NMRCA) in November 2013. This membership qualifies
our unit under 501C3 status as a tax-exempt organization.
Corporations and other donors can contribute to our unit in the
same way as they do for the Red Cross and other volunteer organizations.
This status also allows the use of matching funds.
Here's how interested
parties can donate to the UMV MRC, making their contributions
eligible for tax credits:
Write checks payable to the NMRCA
(or spell out National Medical Reserve Corps Association).
Indicate 'For UMV MRC' in
the Notes section, usually located at the bottom-left of the check.
This specifies the funds as 501-C3 contributions for deposit into
Mail these donations
to our host agency at the following address:
Merrimack Valley MRC
c/o Sandy Collins, RN
UMV MRC Director
Westford Health Department
55 Main Street
Westford, MA 01886
Any funds being contributed
this way are allocated to the UMV MRC. Especially in a difficult
economy, such donations significantly offset our modest operating
expenses, and are greatly appreciated!
