Ways to Give

Thank you so very much for considering to give in support of Veterans’ Health.  We are committed to make the best use of your donation and treat it as we would if it were our own personal money.

PAVIR is a nonprofit organization designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c) 3 by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Our tax ID is #77-0207331.


Online Donation

The easiest, and most immediate way to donate is to make a PayPal donation.  Because PAVIR is registered as a charity with PayPal, we benefit from reduced transaction fees to maximize the value of your donation.  The PayPal mechanism generates an automated confirmation email for you, but PAVIR will send you a donation receipt within two weeks of your donation for tax IRS purposes.
