Help support Branches
through trying times

It is undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased financial strain for Legion Branches. From granting $3 million in reserves to struggling Branches, to government and media outreach to draw attention to the need for financial support, we are doing everything possible to support Branches though these challenging times.
From the beginning, our members, Branches and Commands have come together as a united front. Please help continue the effort by offering to volunteer at your local Branch, or encouraging someone to become a member.
Learn more about the financial struggles facing the Legion and the efforts being made to get Branches the support they deserve.
