USAA commits $2.3 million to military-focused nonprofits to support COVID-19 response

USAA and The USAA Foundation, Inc. have committed a total of $2.3 million to military-focused and national nonprofits to support America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. This support is in addition to the $2.1 million that USAA has directed to local nonprofits in USAA communities.

Military-focused nonprofits included in the planned $2.3 million investment are:

  • The Association of Defense Communities/Blue Star Families COVID-19 Military Support Initiative
  • Fisher House Foundation
  • Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors
  • USO
  • We Care for America Foundation (EANGUS Foundation) Click here to join NGAT/EANGUS

 The funds will help provide meals and emergency financial assistance for military families, care packages for troops deployed overseas, and the development of best practices and policy recommendations to respond to and recover from COVID-19.  “All Americans are feeling the effects of this pandemic, including those who protect our freedom and their families,” USAA President and CEO Wayne Peacock said. “These organizations are on the front lines providing much-needed resources for military families, and we are honored to be able to help. It’s time for us to come together, to do our part; these resources are designed to provide relief during this crisis.”    
In addition, USAA and The USAA Foundation, Inc.’s philanthropic commitment will help address the blood-supply shortage through the American Red Cross and research to create lifesaving coronavirus therapies and vaccines by Texas BioMed Research Institute in San Antonio.  Previously, USAA announced a $1 million donation to five San Antonio-area nonprofits. It also is providing an additional $1.1 million to nonprofits in Phoenix, Tampa, Colorado Springs, Dallas/Fort Worth and southeastern Virginia.   USAA has taken several steps to protect employees and help members and our communities manage through this crisis. More information is available at www.usaa.com/coronavirus.

Texas Coronavirus Cases Prompt Gov. Greg Abbott to Activate National Guard

Gov. Greg Abbott announced Tuesday that he is activating the Texas National Guard in response to the novel coronavirus outbreak in the state, which had at least 69 positive cases as of Tuesday morning. Abbott’s announcement follows recently discovered instances of possible community spread in Webb, Tarrant, Matagorda and Brazoria counties, in addition to community spread identified earlier Montgomery and Dallas counties. On Sunday, Texas saw it’s first coronavirus-related death when a resident in his late 90s died in Matagorda County with a pending test result, which later came back positive. In recent days, public schools and universities have shuttered classrooms and transitioned to online learning, some for the remainder of the semester, and Dallas and Harris County have closed bars and ended seated restaurant dining in the interest of social distancing. The Texas National Guard was last activated during Hurricane Harvey, the 2017 disaster that devastated the Houston area.
