Any eligible Veteran in need of assistance across the State of Colorado can apply for a one time Grant of $500. We receive referrals from VA Social workers, Veterans Service Officers, and other non-profit organizations. In the event the need is greater than the assistance that can be provided, the veteran will be referred to outside resources for: additional assistance to prevent eviction/ or loss of shelter, help with employment/interviewing/resume writing. Veterans will also be referred to our Veterans Service Officers for help with VA Claims and Benefits or, to their Local Human Services Agencies for any additional state assistance as they may qualify for.

Colorado Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The Secretary of State’s office and Internal Revenue have approved all paperwork and the Foundation is a reality. All donations are fully tax-deductible for individuals as well as corporations.

The Officers and Directors of the Colorado Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation are the current State VFW Officers, including the Commander, Senior Vice Commander, Junior Vice Commander and Judge Advocate.

A small donation from every VFW member will go a long way toward our ability to help Colorado veterans. $1.00 per month from every VFW and VFW Auxiliary member will help with emergency assistance to veterans. We have already assisted a number of Colorado veterans, but to keep assisting those in need we need your donations. One-hundred percent of your donation will go to help Colorado veterans in need.
