VFW Disaster Relief Fund Support Needed

- 9/5/2019

Commander-in-Chief Doc Schmitz sends his sincere appreciation to you for your concern for those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

With the hurricane’s potential to impact several states and thousands of veterans, the effects could deplete our existing Disaster Relief Fund. So, we are asking for your help in supplementing our fund to be able to offer the necessary support to areas impacted by Hurricane Dorian. 

The VFW’s Disaster Relief Fund, established several years ago, provides us a broader relief opportunity and allows us to provide immediate relief to those affected states and territories. Departments, Districts and Posts wishing to contribute to the VFW relief efforts needed for those in the path of natural disasters are encouraged to donate to the VFW’s Disaster Relief Fund.

Some have asked if Post Relief Funds can be used to assist with donations … Yes, Section 704 (a) of the Manual of Procedure delineates this point clearly. 

To donate to the VFW Disaster Relief Fund, click here or you may send checks payable to VFW, earmarked "Disaster Relief” to:
