Simple. Speedy. Safe. The new E-Donate service now available online at https://www.pay.gov/paygov/forms/formInstance.html?agencyFormId=48003968 and allows community members who wish to give back to Veterans a quick, safe way to pledge their support. Through E-Donate, donors can select from a number of accounts at the medical center they wish to donate to. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administrative costs are appropriated so donors can be 100 percent certain their donations will go directly to the funds and Veteran patients they select.
Donated money at the Memphis VA medical center goes to items such as hygiene products, refreshment supplies for Veterans, hoptel room, and recreational activities. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation and you can donate by any electronic means commonly used on the Internet today (i.e. credit card or debit card).
