In addition to fundraising events, MAAM is able to offer scholarships as a result of donations from generous patrons. All donations go directly to scholarships to benefit those who are interested in studying martial arts.
There are several ways to make financial contributions to the organization:
- One way is to make a donation of cash or a check (made payable to MAAM) and deposit that check in the box labeled “MAAM donations” at the Ohio Martial Arts dojo desk.
- A second way is to have an extra $5 or $10 (or whatever amount) added to your own tuition every month, and that extra amount will go directly to MAAM. Add a donation to your monthly tuition.
Another way to make donations to MAAM is to use smile.amazon.com. Whenever you make Amazon purchases using this login, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. The first time you log in, the site will ask you to select your preferred non-profit. Search for Martial Artists for the Advancement of Mindfulness (Perrysburg), and select that. Now, whenever you need to make an Amazon purchase, log in at the smile.amazon.com site and proceed to make your purchases as you would normally do.
MAAM is currently recognized as a not-for-profit in the state of Ohio and is a licensed 501(c)(3) by the federal government. Your donations are tax-deductible. Here is a copy of MAAM’s 501(c)(3) certification: Scan0047
