Fundraising and Charitable Support

It’s not unusual to see the VFW or DAV in front of the PX/Commissary, Wal Mart or Golden Corral soliciting donations.  I want to take this opportunity to try and fend off the email about how unpatriotic Target is. 

Target has financed the VFW National VOD students travel costs to Washington, DC the last five years ($620,000) in addition to providing gift cards.  They have also sponsored several VFW National Conventions and are in the process of increasing their future support for the VFW’s National Military Support Programs. 

Home Depot is another organization that has been extremely generous with the VFW and Posts.  They have provided over $700,000 (cash) in grants to Posts.  Contact Home Depot for next grant period.

Target nor Home Depot permit store front solicitation which is what prompted the misleading email.

www.NationalResourceDirectory.com is a new website that has consolidated information from over 10,000 federal, state and local government and organizational websites.  They website was launched by the Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs Department and is a comprehensive guide to benefits, employment, health care and family support information.
