The Military Intelligence Corps Association (MICA) is the premier professional association of the U.S. Army’s Military Intelligence Corps, with the mission of preserving history, educating leaders, honoring professionals, sharing knowledge, and providing supporting award programs. MICA members represent active duty and reserve component forces, as well as Army government civilians, retired members of the Army community, as well as defense contractors and others who support the MI mission and are dedicated to ensuring that Army Intelligence remains “Always Out Front!” MICA has chapters located across the country. Typical chapter activities include membership meetings with guest speakers, community involvement events and special events honoring the MI Corp and outstanding MI professionals.

The Potomac Chapter of the Army’s Military Intelligence Corps Association (MICA) seeks your support for a wide range of charitable activities for 2019. MICA is a 501(c)(3) organization tax ID # 74-2477077 as are the activities explained below, so all of your corporate donation is 100% tax deductible.
The Potomac Chapter has committed itself to the greater National Capital Region (NCR) military community by supporting Veterans’ activities, multiple Wounded Warriors Programs, and active duty support and morale welfare organizations with annual charitable donations. As the largest MICA chapter, we do this by hosting a series of chapter-sponsored events where we bring together the Army’s C4ISR leadership, senior government executives, and industry partners for matters of mutual interest. We could not host these events or support these military charities without the commitment and generosity of our friends in industry - the many defense-based companies that provide invaluable professional services across a diverse mission spectrum to advance the Army’s dynamic and global intelligence mission. Our consistent sponsors and donors include large system integrators such as BAE Systems, Booz-Allen-Hamilton, Inc., CACI International, Inc., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Leidos, Northrop Grumman Corporation, and a host of small businesses that routinely "give back” to the government agencies they support.
Donations are the key to success and on average, each year MICA Potomac raises $$20-25,000 to support various soldier-based academic and wounded-warrior-based rehabilitative programs. To enable our 2019 efforts, we kindly encourage and cordially invite you to join these titans of industry by contributing any amount you believe appropriate. Based on historical contributions, we suggest large business donations average in the $1000-$3000 range with small business contributions falling in the $500-$1500 range. But again, please feel free to contribute any amount within your comfort level. Your 2019 tax-deductible donation will support the following programs:
MICA National Scholarship Fund: Donations provide financial support to enlisted soldiers and their families pursuing undergraduate-level college courses. Scholarship funds can be used for attendance (tuition, books and classroom fees) at any regionally accredited college, university, state approved vocational school or technical institution. Potomac Chapter has been donating to this fund since 1999.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF): This nation-wide program is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. Your contributions help the two PHWFF chapters in the National Capital Region (Fort Belvoir and Quantico) and eleven other chapters located throughout Virginia.
Fort Belvoir Wounded Warrior Golf Program: This program is part of the Links to Freedom Golf Foundation which is dedicated to restoring a sense of normalcy to our wounded warriors, disabled veterans, their families, and caregivers through rehabilitative and adaptive golf programs at military and civilian golf courses nationwide. The primary focus is the physical, mental, social, and emotional needs of every participant while building a strong fellowship between participants and the greater golf community. Your contribution supports local soldiers and families right here in our own back yard at Fort Belvoir.
Veterans Fishing Adventure, Inc.: This is a locally based 501(c)(3) founded by a USMC veteran and his daughter in order to provide fishing and boating adventures on the Potomac River in Fairfax, VA, and the Occoquan River in Lorton, VA, to veterans and their families. The group runs a unique and specially configured boat that was built to accommodate wheelchair-bound veterans. First priority goes to those personnel under Hospice care and with mobility issues. All services are free and the organization is run through 100% volunteers and donations. Their goal is to have 20 boats in operation across the county in the next five years.
Should you have further questions, please feel free to contact MICA Potomac Vice President Deborah Beckworth: email@example.com or (703) 309-0199. Our Treasurer, Mr. Jeff Pendry, will work with you directly and provide tax contribution forms and receipts. He can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 710-8158.
