The Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center is pleased to announce the availability of E-Donate, an online donation option that will provide community members, who wish to give back to Veterans at the medical center, a simple and safe way to pledge their support to the fund of their choice. The E-Donate option allows donors to select from a number of funds at the medical center to which they may donate. Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative costs are appropriated, so donors can be assured 100 percent of their donations go to the funds they select and the Veteran patients they are choosing to support. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation.
