The American Legion, Department of Wisconsin’s Troop and Family Support fund is open to all Veterans. This is a restricted fund supported by donations from both our members and the general public. Every penny donated to the fund is used to support Wisconsin veterans and their families who have been discharged “Under Honorable Conditions” or higher.
The National Emergency Fund, created in response to Hurricane Hugo in 1989, has provided more than $8 million in direct financial assistance to American Legion Family members and posts. By providing this emergency funding, NEF has prevented damaged posts from closing and enabled American Legion Family members to recover from tragedy.
Since its establishment in 1925, The American Legion Temporary Financial Assistance (TFA) program has awarded cash grants to minor children of current active duty or American Legion members. These grants help families in need meet the cost of shelter, food, utilities and health expenses, thereby keeping the child or children in a more stable environment.
