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!
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 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. Review the details of the community service grant and apply.
PLEASE NOTE: Funds for the VFW Foundation Post/VFW Auxiliary Community Support Grant have been exhausted for the current fiscal year. The VFW Foundation will be accepting applications for the next grant cycle beginning September 1, 2017.
VFW Foundation Regular 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 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 under-served need and the likelihood of sustainability after the grant period ends will be given special consideration. Review the details of the grant and apply.
