General Information
Description of ProgramVFW Foundation fills in governmental assistance gaps for troops abroad, military families back in the U.S. and America’s often-forgotten veterans. These programs support all branches of the military, are provided at no cost to the recipients and require no Veterans of Foreign Wars affiliation.

As a not-for-profit organization, the VFW Foundation receives no government funding. We rely solely on individual donations and corporation sponsorships. Your tax-deductible charitable contribution makes a direct impact on how much help and financial support we’re able to provide our deployed troops and retired military and their families in their time of need.

With your help, we can continue to support programs that:
  • Reward America’s military heroes and their families by sponsoring admission to popular entertainment events and attractions.
  • Provide prepaid phone time and sponsored “Free Call Days” allowing deployed troops and hospitalized veterans to connect with loved ones.
  • Support troops and their families in need of financial assistance for housing, medical or basic assistance needs with a one-time grant.
  • Sponsor “welcome home” and “send off” events to boost the morale of returning or deployed military units.
  • Offer military veterans, regardless of when or where they served, with VFW counsel and assistance to successfully navigate VA entitlement and disability claims.
Established 1914, the members of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars set out to serve the veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform.
