How to Help

The American Legion's National Emergency Fund is set up to quickly and efficiently provide money to affected Legion Family members and posts. A full 100 percent of donations to NEF are turned into grants. Donations are not used to cover administrative and promotional costs.

Checks may be mailed to:
The American Legion
National Emergency Fund
P.O. Box 1954
Indianapolis, IN 46206


NEF relies on donations to help Legionnaires, Auxiliary members and Sons recover from disaster. Fundraisers such as motorcycle runs, fish fries or raffles are great ways to gather donations. Another Legion post, Auxiliary unit, Sons of The American Legion squadron or Riders chapter could assist in sponsoring or promoting a fundraiser for NEF. Proceeds from fundraisers may be donated to NEF by the website or mailing address listed above.
