    If one wanted to donate while they were renewing their membership, go to the DVOA homepage and under the 50th symbol, see the Join DVOA red button.  You can renew your membership and add a donation right there.

    If they want to donate outside of joining/renewing, they can email maryf@covenv.com to get that information.

    Have a wonderful day!

    You can also send a PayPal to treasurer@dvoa.org - and you can send an email to the same address to let him know why you're sending it. (email goes to John Ort, our treasurer, and PayPal goes to the DVOA account.)

    Thank you for considering a donation to DVOA!  Let's keep this this thing going!

    And for those of you that want to help but do not have spare change right now, Remember that last minute holiday treats bought on Amazon Smiles can give our club a gift also.

    If you haven't already selected a charity, go to https://smile.amazon.com/charity/smile/about/ref=smi_se_ft_abt_saas and search for whatever one you want to support with purchases via Amazon.

    Amazon smiles has sent out this notice
    "
    Amazon to focus its philanthropic giving to programs with greater impact. Stay updated.

    AmazonSmile Org Central
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Dear charitable organization,

    In 2013, we launched AmazonSmile to make it easier for customers to support their favorite charities. We were excited about the potential for the program and the impact it could have for many charitable organizations. We want to thank you for your partnership during all these years.

    After almost a decade of running AmazonSmile, we learned that with so many eligible organizations—more than 1 million globally—our ability to have an impact was often spread too thin.

    Over the past few years, we’ve seen that Amazon can have a more significant and lasting impact if we invest in specific areas and focus our philanthropic efforts in the communities where our employees live and work. We’ve started to see the benefits of a more focused approach with our investments in programs like Amazon Future Engineer and our $2 billion investment in building affordable housing in our hometown communities through the Amazon Housing Equity Fund—and we will continue to pursue and invest in other areas where we’ve seen we can make meaningful change.

    We are writing to let you know that we have made plans to wind down AmazonSmile by February 20, 2023. Until this date, customer purchases made via AmazonSmile will continue to accrue funds for your charity as normal. To help nonprofits like you plan ahead, we will also provide you with a one-time payment equivalent to three months of payments based on what you accrued in 2022 through this program. The timing of this final payment will be approximately 60 to 90 days after February 20, 2023. We hope that this will help minimize the impact that this decision might have.

    You will be able to continue asking for the support from Amazon customers in other ways, like creating your product lists.

    We will keep supporting thousands of charities across the U.S. in many ways, and focus on the areas we believe can help create an even greater impact. Our long-term commitment to our communities remains the same: We are determined to help create a better world for our customers, our employees, and the communities we serve across the country.

    Thank you,
    AmazonSmile Team"
