ALA Foundation

Ensuring our mission of service endures for veterans, military, and their families.


The ALA Foundation positively impacts the lives of our veterans, military, and their families by funding programs of the American Legion Auxiliary today and for future generations.


Founded in 2007, the purpose of the American Legion Auxiliary Foundation is to assist in carrying out the educational, charitable, and other exempt purposes of the Auxiliary by raising funds for, assisting in conduct of, and providing support to the Auxiliary programs.

It is a way to secure our legacy and heritage of Service Not Self, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for future generations of veterans, military, and their families.
