The DAV of Minnesota has established the Donor Connect Program to connect Minnesota Veterans and/or their families in need of used durable medical equipment with medical equipment donors. The goal of the program is to build better lives for all Minnesota veterans and their family members.
How does this program work?
The Donor Connect Program is completely donation based. There is no cost to either the donors or the veterans who receive the donation. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
The Donor Connect Program does not pickup donated durable medical equipment. We help find a recipient in need and put them in contact with the donor to make arrangements to transfer the donated equipment. Please note that our program only serves Minnesota veterans and those in surrounding areas. At such time that the recipient no longer needs the equipment, we help place it with another veteran or family member in need.
