Securing the ALA’s Future
As more young veterans join the ranks of
America’s war heroes the
American Legion Auxiliary is needed more
than ever. The American Legion Auxiliary
Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, provides
a way to secure our legacy and heritage of
Service Not Self, ultimately enhancing the
quality of life for
future generations of
veterans, our military
and their families.
As an endowed
fund, the monies
will be permanently
restricted so that
may benefit from ALA
programs that support
all of our veterans
and promote education, good citizenship and
outreach to veterans facing tough challenges.
Your donation today will help ensure we’re here
to help veterans tomorrow.
Women Helping Women in Crisis
No matter how thoroughly we prepare, we
all encounter hard times. In some cases, the
challenge is too difficult to overcome alone. The
AEF could be a helping hand for a struggling
Auxiliary member in need of food, shelter
or utilities for her
family after a natural
disaster or during
time of financial
crisis. Established in
1969, the Fund is a
safety net for those
in desperate need.
When you give to the
Fund, you’re giving a
fellow ALA member not just help, but hope.
It is important to acknowledge the sacrifices of
servicemembers who preserve our freedom, but
that is not enough. The sacrifices of the children
of those who served should also be honored.
The Children of Warriors National Presidents’
Scholarship provides them with that recognition
in the form of financial support for higher
education. Every year, 15 outstanding students
from around the United States are awarded
thousands of dollars in scholarship money.
When you give to the National Presidents’
Scholarship, it is our way of showing how much
we, as a nation, care.
Investing in our Future
The future of our country depends on our young
people. The Spirit of Youth program recognizes
this basic truth by rewarding our exceptional
young members who have a keen sense of
patriotism and respect for the American
Legion Auxiliary’s guiding principle. Each
year, the program supports the educational
advancement of Junior Auxiliary members
through college scholarships. Think of your
investment in the Spirit of Youth as an investment
in the future because the education received by
these young members will help them serve the
ALA and their country for years to come.
Helping Heal the Wounded
The arts can be powerful medicine, and the
ALA recognizes that. More than a decade
ago, the American Legion Auxiliary became a
co-sponsor of the National Veterans Creative
Arts Festival, an amazing event that assists
veterans in healing from both their physical
and psychological wounds through visual and
performing arts. NVCAF annually showcases
the artistic achievements of veterans being
treated at VA facilities across the country. With
your gift, the show can go on!
