Post Grants

Post Grants

For more than 11 decades, VFW Posts have been the pillars of support in their communities. From building local playgrounds and organizing clothing drives, to military support events and disaster relief efforts, we take great pride in our long history of service to communities across the globe. If your Post or Auxiliary is interested in a receiving a grant to help with the cost of your next community service event, the VFW Foundation may be able to help!

Community service projects that involve a local branch or affiliate of a VFW National corporate supporter may be eligible to receive up to $500 in additional funding. Please follow this link for more information and for a list of approved supporters you can work with.


VFW Foundation Community Support 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 in serving their communities, the VFW Foundation - the official 501(c)(3) charity of the VFW - established the VFW Foundation Post/VFW Auxiliary Community Support Grant to help fund local community service projects.

Available to any VFW Post or Auxiliary, a VFW Foundation Post/VFW Auxiliary Community Support Grant will provide up to $1,000 for performing important and needed qualifying outreach projects in your community! With an easy and streamlined application process, Posts and Auxiliaries can expect to receive a decision within thirty (30) days of the application submission.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2019-20 VFW Foundation Community Support Grant. Download the application and apply today.


VFW Foundation Grant

No one understands military and veteran support quite like we do. To help VFW Departments, Posts and 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 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 under-served need and the likelihood of sustainability after the grant period ends will be given special consideration.

The 2019-20 application period has closed. The 2020-21 application period will open September 2020. Please check back closer to that time for more information.
