Delaware Veterans Trust Fund In Need Of Contributions

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - Officials with the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund say they are in need of contributions.

The Veterans Trust Fund was created to raise private funds to assist honorably discharged Delaware veterans who are in financial difficulty. However, beyond an initial $25,000 grant, the fund depends on private contributions.

Its board of directors, the Friends of the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund, is made up of volunteers using existing facilities at the offices of the Commission of Veterans Affairs in Dover. This means that 100 percent of the tax-deductible contributions received will go to Delaware veterans from a special account set up for the fund.

All applicants must complete an application to determine eligibility and needs based on available funds. Veteran Service Officers at traditional organizations like the American Legion, the VFW, DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and others may pass along applications from veterans who have met their criteria. Applications will also be reviewed by a Trust Fund committee to determine eligibility, needs and priorities based on available funds.

Checks should be made out to Delaware Veterans Trust Fund and mailed to the Commission of Veterans Affairs, 802 Silver Lake Blvd., Suite 100, Dover, DE 19904 or call 302-739-2792.
