Building a Legacy for Veterans.

Our mission is to build, support, and preserve Veterans service programs while bringing together Veterans, families and the community in the public square of Veteranship.

Programs We support

Leadership Veteran

Providing Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) the knowledge foundation and professionalism of nonprofit operations, connection to resources, and collaboration opportunities that benefit Veterans.

Veterans Arts Council

Founded by VFW Post 1, VAC encourages the artistic engagement and development of Veterans by providing resources, workshops, mentorships, and more.

VFW Post 1 & Veteran Community Center

As the first Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in the world, Post 1 focuses on providing a place for all Veterans to come together with proactive value-based programs.


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.
