Our communities will celebrate Veterans Day on Nov. 11 to honor the men and women in our Armed Forces. Many have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. For some, injuries sustained during their service have left them disabled. Since 2009, banks in Missouri, their employees and communities and MBA association members have raised more than $549,000 to support Segs4Vets, the designated charity of the Missouri Bankers Association. 

MBA's 2018 Segs4Vets Day

In 2017, MBA members and their communities made their largest donation to Segs4Vets - $160,592. MBA has set a $75,000 goal for its 2018 Segs4Vets campaign.

Friday, Nov. 9, has been designated as “MBA Segs4Vets Day.” Fundraising has begun and will continue through Veterans Day. Banks may make donations or raise funds through various activities. Banks making pledges or donations by Friday, November 16, will be recognized during the Seg4Vets presentation at MBA’s Executive Management Conference on Thursday, Dec. 6, in Kansas City. Bankers also will be acknowledged in The Missouri Banker newspaper in December. Donations are tax deductible, and checks should be made payable to Segs4Vets. Please know your donation to Segs4Vets will significantly enhance the quality of life for veterans and their families.

What is Segs4Vets?

Segs4Vets is a volunteer program that provides Segway mobile transporters to help severely injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The cost to provide a Segway is about $10,000 while the cost for an ALLY chair, which is a modified Segway chair, is $15,000. For every $1 donated, 98 cents supports Segs4Vets mission — empowering injured soldiers to live independently.
