Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center
Volunteer or Donate
Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center (VAMC) depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes.
Volunteers actively support many important functions throughout the Medical Center that help make our Veterans’ visits more enjoyable. Volunteer's talents and experience are closely matched with one of our many assignments.
Additionally, the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) oversees our transportation service for Veterans with no other means of transport to the Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center (VAMC) for their medical appointments. The DAV Transportation Coordinator is always in need of volunteer drivers. For more information: Contact Jeannie Kyle (509) 434-7019 or visit the DAV office that is also located in building 6A here at the VAMC.

New Service! E-Donate
Simple. Speedy. Safe. The new E-Donate service now available online allows community members who wish to give back to Veterans a quick, safe way to pledge their support. Through E-Donate, donors can select from a number of accounts at the medical center they wish to donate to. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administrative costs are appropriated so donors can be 100 percent certain their donations will go directly to the funds and Veteran patients they select.
Donated money at our medical center goes to Veteran patient programs, Homeless Veteran programs, Social Work services, support groups and other programs that directly help Veterans. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation and you can donate by any electronic means commonly used on the Internet today (i.e., credit card or debit card). You choose the medical center, you choose the amount, and you choose from available options how your money will support local Veterans.
