About this organization








The mission of the VFW Foundation is to serve military veterans, service members and their families by securing resources for programs that facilitate enhanced life outcomes. Now and for generations to come.


The Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation is the official 501(c)(3) of the VFW. It exists to provide financial resources to the vital assistance programs of the VFW. Through our strategic relationships with supporters, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation fills in governmental assistance gaps for troops abroad, military families back in the U.S. and America’s often-forgotten veterans. These programs are provided at no cost to the recipients and require no Veterans of Foreign Wars affiliation. Our vision is to create a positive impact on America’s military veterans, service members and their families by addressing their unique needs.
