VFW POSTS & AUXILIARIES
YOU CAN APPLY FOR A COMMUNITY SERVICE GRANT
RECEIVE UP TO $1,000 TO MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE!
The VFW Foundation wants to help your Post get more involved in your community. That’s why we have established a “VFW Foundation Community Service Grant” open to VFW Posts and their Auxiliaries.
The VFW Foundation will provide up to $1,000 to a Post or Auxiliary performing an important and needed outreach in their community!
The application process is simple:
A VFW Post or Auxiliary can apply using the attached “VFW Foundation Community Service Grant” application as found on pages 4-5 (Sections I & II) of this document. The application must be signed and authorized by the head of your organization (Post Commander or Auxiliary President) so that he/she is knowledgeable and supportive of the request.
After the application is submitted, the Post or Auxiliary will receive notification from the VFW Foundation within thirty (30) calendar days of a decision. If the project has been approved, a check or notification of ACH from the VFW Foundation will be included with the decision letter.VFW Foundation grant funds must be expended within six (6) months of the award date which coincides with the time frame expected for project completion.
A Post or Auxiliary that receives grant funding must complete a Final Report (also provided by the VFW Foundation in the award letter) along with proof of expenditures in the form of receipts, invoice copies or copies of check(s) that verify spending for their project.
