   Thank you for supporting the SOA


Donations designated for this purpose are use to defray our operational costs, which may include website costs, postage, printing and the similar costs that we use to maintain the operation of our charity.

Donations designated for this purpose are use to defray our member benefit costs, which may include those for our annual dinner to honor our retiring members, memorial retirement gifts, our holiday event when we designate time for Santa to visit our youngest children who members might not be able to spend the holiday with due to work schedules, and similar member benefit programs.

Our charitable activities include public benefit programs. A donation through the PayPal Giving Fund is automatically designated for public benefit through SMC SOA Programs.
