Community Service, Scholarships & Awards

Since its founding, the VFW has been a staple in the community. As a VFW member, you work hard to improve your community and the lives of those in it. Here you will find the tools and resources your Post needs to engage and support your community while helping to foster patriotism and honor our nation's heroes. From Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen entry forms and sample press releases to Veterans in the Classroom resources, the tools here will help your Post provide the assistance and support that is a cornerstone of the VFW's foundation.

We've been working hard to streamline the program reporting process, and the Programs Dashboard Tool is finally here! So toss out the old PDFs, recycle all those paper copies you have laying around, and head over to the Programs Dashboard Tool where we've made it easy to submit your Post participation report, or approve submitted reports for your District or Department. If you still have questions on how to submit your report, visit our Dashboard Tool Training page, view our handy Programs Dashboard Guide, or just send us an email

All-American donations made to replace participation toward Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen (for eligible oversees Posts only) will only be accepted through the following link. Do not donate through your Department or by any other means.
