Several years ago, the Vance-Bennick Family Estate bequeathed a substantial monetary donation to VVA Chapter 218, to be expressly used for the sole purpose of providing aid to qualified American Veterans.


If you, or a Veteran you may know is in need of a particular service, item, aid or home improvement (such as a wheelchair ramp), etc., you may apply for a grant from our Vance Memorial Fund by contacting any member of our committee. We can provide an application packet to you in person or via mail or fax.

Committee Members:

Chris Galbraith    Fred Golin (Chair)    Don Matter
