Green Country Veterans Association

Is Green Country Veterans Association a good veterans charity to donate to?

Karen, thank you for your question.

We were unable to find much information about the organization. It appears to be a local northeast Oklahoma group associated with a local American Legion Post.

We have not been able to confirm whether it is a separate tax-exempt organization.

We have sent an e-mail directly to Green Country Veterans Association, requesting information.

As soon as we hear from them, we'll update this page and post the information, so please bookmark the page and check back in a few days.

Thank you for your support of our nation's veterans.

Current Charitable Receipts & Expenses
by: Anonymous

The GCVA needs to disclose on their web site the total amount of donations received each year, including the amount that is spent on promotions & other means of soliciting donations. Including the amount spent directly on behalf of the veterans, plus total administration costs for salaries, vehicles, vehicle transportation costs etc.

This would provide the donor with the first hand knowledge as to how their donations are being spent.

Claremore resident
by: Eric Strait

I work closely with this organization.

Jim Baker, the president, and his wife have a passion for helping our veterans that reside at the Claremore Veterans Center. They do many things each month and especially at Christmas to let the veterans without family know that they are appreciated.

At the center they store carloads of shaving cream, razor, shirts, pants, and many more quality items. They have decorated the dining hall and have put in flat panel televisions.

At Christmas time, they go to each veteran and ask them what they could use and what they would like from their family. They go fishing with them, play bingo, and are involved at least once a month in some sort of program to make their living more comfortable at the center.

Jim Baker was the commander of the very first American Legion post, Carson Wilson Post 1 in Tulsa.
