Disaster Fund

It’s hard rebuilding your life after a natural disaster. Let JWV help! Our National Disaster Relief Program exists to provide emergency aid to members in good standing who were affected by a natural disaster.
To apply, please submit all of the following to your Department Commander. All information will remain private.

  • Photos of the damage
  • An estimate of the cost to repair the damage
  • An itemized list of items required or needing to be replaced (such as food, clothing, furniture, etc.)
  • Your name, contact information, and Post number
Decisions are made by the two Relief Program Chairmen on a case-by-case basis. If they have questions or require additional information, they may contact you. Your submission to the program is based upon the understanding that your contact information will be given to the case officers. Up to $1,000 will be provided per case.
Department Commanders must review and recommend all submission information to JWV Programs Coordinator Anna Selman at .
