As with any organization, fundraising is what keeps us afloat. From the National Department down to your local Posts, there are a myriad of ways for you to help us help veterans. On this page, we list current fundraisers, starting with our BEST DEAL – the National Appeal. Scroll down to learn about the others and find out if you were a winner, if you bought tickets. Thank you for your support of the Catholic War Veterans and Auxiliary!


Our newest fundraiser! Become a Backer, Supporter, Sponsor, or Benefactor and, you’ll be helping to secure the financial future of the Catholic War Veterans.

The Appeal will help provide the Catholic War Veterans with a consistent source of income to continue funding our Programs and taking care of veterans well into the future. Members making a recurring monthly or annual donation at one of the amounts below, will be entered into one, several, or ALL of our National fundraisers AND the National portion of your dues will be paid every year that you continue to take part!

Sign ups for the 2018 Appeal are now starting. Read about it here first and in our next National Newsletter due out after the National Convention.

  • Sign up before August 1, 2017 and the proposed Per Capita increase (if it passes) will not affect you – it will come straight out of your 2018 Appeal donation!
  • Sign up before October 1, 2017 to receive all the applicable Incentive Items for your donor level for the entire year! 
  • Sign up between November 1, 2017 – January 15, 2018 and you will receive all items still due to come out for the remainder of the membership year!

Incentive items will be mailed to you and you will receive an email notice (if you listed your email on the Response Form). Raffle tickets will be automatically filled out and entered for you.

PLEASE NOTE: For first time Appeal participants ONLY: Your dues for 2017-18 have to be paid to take part in the Appeal for the 2017-18 membership year. 

For returning 2016-17 Appeal Participants: the National portion – $20.00 of your Post dues will be automatically paid! Your Post will be notified not to collect this portion from you when dues are paid.
