Annual Charity Events

The Washington, DC, Chapter is committed to its two signature events:
  1. ROTC Scholarship Program Benefitting 14 Area ROTC Cadet/Midshipmen. The Washington, DC, Chapter is kicking off its annual ROTC Scholarship fundraising campaign for 2021. We need both personal and corporate financial support.
    During this annual program, the Chapter awards $35,000 in scholarships to 14 Cadets/Midshipmen from the local area's seven ROTC Units: George Mason University (Army), The George Washington University (Navy), Georgetown University (Army), Howard University (Army & Air Force), and University of Maryland (Army & Air Force). Awards will be presented at an event in Fall 2021. Date will be announced when confirmed. 

    Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our merit-based scholarships designed for "high potential" ROTC Cadets and Midshipmen from universities and colleges around the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. No contribution is too small.

    All contributions will be recognized at the Washington, DC, Chapter Annual ROTC Scholarship Awards Ceremony scheduled for Fall 2021. Our Nation is blessed with patriotic young Americans that continue to join our volunteer military, and our Chapter is honored to enable the best and brightest with contributions supporting their career choice.

    2. Swing for Freedom Golf Invitational benefitting the USO-Metro
    is scheduled for October 29, 2021. The COVID-19 status will be monitored, and all state and local health guidelines will be followed.


    Swing for Freedom! This annual golf invitational is sponsored by NDIA Washington, DC, Chapter and held at Stonewall Golf Club in Manassas, VA. Approximately 144 golfers and sponsors will be playing, enjoying a fun day of camaraderie, competition, and relaxation. Proceeds from this benefit go towards USO-Metro's local programs and services to our active-duty service members and their families. The USO Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore is a private, non-profit 501(c) (3) organization whose mission is to serve military personnel and their families throughout the entire metropolitan region. From Richmond to Baltimore, the USO of Metropolitan Washington Baltimore is here to serve. Your NDIA Washington, DC, Chapter donated $35,000 last year. Let's show our support again this year.
