Welcome to the Department of Florida AMVETS Service Foundation. The Florida AMVETS Service Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit incorporated within the State of Florida.  We exist solely to serve Florida’s Veterans.  We help veterans with emergency hardship grants for those with immediate needs, matching funds for veterans’ projects, scholarships, VA claims, and more.  We also developed and administer/manage the Disaster Relief Program for the AMVETS of Florida family. 

     Our Service Officers, located at several VA centers, help “cut the red tape” when a veteran, or a veteran’s dependent is attempting to obtain compensation and benefits from the Veterans’ Administration. This service is at no charge to our veterans. 

     In conjunction with the National AMVETS Service Foundation, our Thrift Stores offer the public household goods and clothing at discounted prices. The proceeds from our store sales allow us to provide programs that benefit our veterans.

     We offer several Scholarships on an annual basis to enable them to get an education.

     Through our Americanism program, we work in conjunction with AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary and the Freedoms Foundation to educate our youth on America’s history to instill national pride and patriotism.

     Memorial Carillon Bells are in many National and State veterans’ cemeteries across the nation, as well as overseas. They toll to remind us of the sacrifices made by our troops to preserve our freedom.

     If you or someone you know is a veteran seeking assistance, please contact your local AMVETS post, or contact us through this website.  We are Veterans Serving Veterans and “Every day is Veterans Day!”
