Welcome to VFW OHIO CHARITIES
----- The VFW Foundation is shifting its grant
making focus for the 2021 fiscal year to provide urgently needed financial
relief to VFW Posts affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The VFW Foundation Post
Pandemic Relief Grant (PPRG) is an opportunity for VFW Posts that own or lease
their buildings to receive up to $2,500 in support toward expenses such as
mortgage/rent, utility bills and property taxes. Posts will need to meet
certain requirements to be eligible to receive funding from this program. PPRG applications will be accepted beginning 10/1/2020. However, Posts may access and begin completing the application prior to October. You may also contact Jason Couch, Grants & External Relations Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
URGENT! All Restrictions on Charity Accounts are Lifted!
----- Have you moved your Charities bank account to 5/3rd Bank yet? If not, be advised that the deadline is 31 October 2020. Starting 1 November 2020, VFWOC will no longer be mailing Charities checks to Posts, and charities funds will be deposited directly into your Post's 5/3rd account. Contact the Charities office if you have any questions about this process.
