Unfortunately due to ethos restrictions and limitations to what can be received- the best way to donate is through the Coast Mutual assistance:

One thing that bothers me the most is not treating ALL USAA members the same, offering the same products, and same benefits. We are all members of USAA, no matter what agency or job series we are. To only offer certain products to a certain group of members is discrimination, plain and simple. USAA has failed, and even if they implemented a correction at this point, its too late. Navy Federal Credit Union and the Justice Federal Credit Union got ahead of this situation and offered products and benefits to ALL of its members. Very sad, I would have never expected this type of discrimination from USAA, and not valuing all of its members that come from all areas of the federal government.
Check this out from Navy FCU -
