They're Number One: The Campaign to Save VFW Post 1
In 2002, Michael Mitchel, a Navy veteran of the Persian Gulf War, drove by 955 Bannock and saw the neon sign; he wondered if it was truly the first VFW post in the country.
Post 1 Foundation Secures $1M in Donations and Grants
The Post 1 Foundation has secured $1M in donations and grants for the VFW Post 1 Veteran Community Center.
Providing Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) the knowledge foundation and professionalism of nonprofit operations, connection to resources, and collaboration opportunities that benefit Veterans.
We embrace Veteranship—when the community and Veterans come together, be it for Veterans or non-Veteran issues.
About the Foundation
The Post 1 Foundation mission approach is a proactive values-based approach with the goal of helping constituents thrive in the community. By supporting opportunities that prevent a Veteran from falling on hard times, then the individual and/or family are on a path of success while the resources of VSOs who assist those in need are spared.
