Thank you very much for your kind and generous wish to support the POW/MIA effort.

Many have expressed a desire to help DPAA provide the fullest possible accounting for the approximately 82,000 missing Department of Defense personnel from the Nation’s past conflicts to their families and the Nation.

Section 523 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 amended Title 10, U.S. Code § 1501a to authorize the Secretary of Defense to accept and use gifts of money, property, or services made on the condition that the gift be used for the purpose of facilitating accounting for missing persons pursuant to Title 10, U.S. Code § 1501(a).

This authority has been delegated to the Director, DPAA.

If you are interested in making a non-cash monetary gift (check or money order) please email dpaa.donations@mail.mil and briefly describe the gift, its value, any cost that DPAA may incur if the gift was accepted, and any conditions on use of the gift.
