The VFW Foundation has an exciting new grant that is geared toward VFW Posts & Auxiliaries. It is called the “VFW Foundation Community Service Matching Grant.”
me implies, the grant is designed to encourage VFW Posts and Auxiliaries to be more involved in their communities through support of other local nonprofits that promote youth mentorship, senior care and other beneficial services. Instead of a military focus (troops, veterans and military families) this grant is directed more toward the general non-military local population.
The grant, which awards up to $500, must be matched dollar-for-dollar by a Post/Auxiliary’s own fundraising efforts. Examples might include a Post or Auxiliary helping out a Little League baseball team, contributing funding for a K-12 school project or making a donation to a soup kitchen, senior center or homeless shelter.
In our effort to promote this grant opportunity to VFW Posts and Auxiliaries, I have attached ad copy (color and black-and-white version) that I kindly ask you place in your Department newspaper or newsletter when extra space is available. Please also help to get the word out about the grant through any other communication channels.
The grant application can be accessed at www.vfwfoundation.org by clicking on the “Grants” tab at the top of the webpage. If anyone has a question about the grant or eligibility, please have them contact Jason Couch of my staff at (816) 968-1174 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks for this consideration!
