We all know someone who has the dreaded disease - CANCER. The only way this disease can be beaten is through research. All money donated to our Department fund will be donated to the Karmanos Cancer Institute, affiliated with the Wayne State School of Medicine, for cancer research. The budget for this committee is not taken out of these funds. Each year, the goal is to receive a minimum of $1.00 per member. Posts, County Councils, Districts, and Auxiliaries are encouraged to have fundraisers in their community. Suggestions include but are not limited to bingo, raffles, dinner, etc.
A citation will be given to each post that donates a minimum of $1.00 per member in each division based on the April 30, 2024, membership report. Post totals will include their Auxiliary donations to our fund.
A citation will be given to the top three Districts donating the most money per member based on the April 30, 2024, membership report. (Includes donations by Post, Councils, and district)
ALL CHECKS SHOULD BE MADE OUT TO THE DEPARTMENT OF MICHIGAN VFW AND EARMARKED CANCER RESEARCH. IF AN INDIVIDUAL SENDS A CHECK, IT SHOULD BE MADE OUT THE SAME WAY AND INDICATE POST OR AUXILIARY NUMBER.
Only donations to the Department Cancer Research fund will be credited under Cancer.
Posts will receive five (5) All State points for each $25 donation to Cancer (maximum $100).
