VFW FOUNDATION COMMUNITY SERVICE GRANT
VFW community service projects are extremely important and shouldn’t be hindered by budgetary limitations. In an effort to help VFW Posts and Auxiliaries succeed serving their communities, the VFW Foundation – the official 501 (c)(3) charity of the VFW – established the VFW Foundation Community Service Grant to help fund local community service projects.
Available to any VFW Post or Auxiliary, a VFW Foundation Community Service Grant will provide up to $1,000 for performing important and needed qualifying outreach project in their community!
With an easy and streamlined application process, Posts and Auxiliaries can expect to receive a decision within thirty (30) days of their application submission. To find out more about the community service grant or to apply, click here.
THE VFW FOUNDATION COMMUNITY SERVICE GRANT APPLICATION PERIOD HAS CLOSED. APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED STARTING SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 FOR THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR.
VFW FOUNDATION REGULAR GRANT
No one understands military and veteran support quite like the VFW. To help VFW Departments, Posts and their Auxiliaries, as well as qualifying nonprofits provide the vital support America’s heroes and their families deserve, the VFW Foundation has established the VFW Foundation Regular Grant.
Grants ranging from $1,000 – $15,000, will be awarded for activities that directly benefit veterans, active duty military personnel and their families. Requests displaying innovation in service delivery, unique program design that addresses an underserved need and the likelihood of sustainability after the grant period ends will be given special consideration.
