Post Grants

VFW Foundation Grants

For nearly 124 years, 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.

The VFW Foundation is proud to offer funding through various grant programs available throughout the year designed to help VFW Posts and their Auxiliaries provide the vital support local communities, America's heroes and their families all deserve,

The VFW Foundation is providing three grant opportunities during the 2023-2024 cycle. The VFW Foundation application period is now open!

Grants are open exclusively to VFW entities. All grants are reimbursement based as applicants will need to do a project and then submit an application with proof of how the funding was spent. Applicants are highly encouraged to contact the VFW Foundation prior to starting a project to ensure it qualifies.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Chris Johnson at
