The Auxiliary Emergency Fund provides temporary financial assistance to eligible members during times of financial crises or weather-related emergencies and natural disasters and promotes awareness and knowledge of the progress.                                                

A person is eligible by being a paid up member for 3 consecutive years.  The grant amount can equal as much as $2400.00 and will be disbursed as the Auxiliary Emergency Fund Committee determines.

This year our nation is experiencing devastating hurricanes in Texas and Florida, and fires in Montana.  With others states also experiencing more disasters we will need to be generous with our donations to the AEF fund.  Visit the AEF page at www.alaforveterans.org for forms or contact me.  This site will also let you donate directly on line using your smart phone, tablet or personal computer. Click the “Donate” icon on the home page and follow the instructions.
