Building A Legacy for Veterans

In October 2014, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1 - the first and oldest VFW Post in the world - established the Post 1 Foundation, whose mission is to build, support, and preserve veterans service programs and organizations.

Current programs include art shows, art classes and art therapy, 1-1 mentoring, job preparation and entrepreneurship education, health and wellness programs, and much more.

Post 1 Foundation is 100% donor-supported, and it is only with your help and generosity that we can continue to equip and empower veterans programs and service organizations.

Please consider making a donation to Post 1 Foundation, to create lasting legacy and impacts for our military veterans and families for generations to come.
