Veterans Emergency Fund

SAVE4VETS is a veteran support program created by American National Bank Fox Cities in partnership with the Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. to sustain a Veterans Emergency Fund.

The Veterans Emergency Fund is managed by the Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. The Fund provides a temporary financial bridge for veterans and military families in the Fox Valley in times of hardship. When short-term help is not provided for veterans needing a “hand up”, the results for some include homelessness, broken families and divorce, substance abuse and addictions, and in extreme situations, death at their own hands. The Veterans Emergency Fund provides funding for housing, utility payments, clothing, food, transportation or any other high priority need. It’s the bridge to successful reintegration, self-sufficiency and self-dignity. The Veterans Emergency Fund can save lives and families.

Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. (FVVC)



The mission of the Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. is to solicit and coordinate community support for military veterans, those still serving, their families, and survivors.

We collaborate with veteran service organizations and other public and private partners that support veterans—avoiding duplication of services and ensuring the effective use of resources.

We inspire partnerships to identify and fill gaps in veteran services and raise funds to address specific problems or opportunities related to veteran needs in our community.


The Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. (FVVC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. The FVVC is composed of area veteran service organizations and associate members who provide emergency funding for basic needs to area veterans, those still serving, their dependents, and survivors. The FVVC also provides a forum within the Fox Valley to disseminate information among veteran organizations and supports activities for the common good of all veterans.  Additionally, the FVVC supports the Outagamie County Veterans Memorial and presents the Outagamie County annual Memorial and Veterans Day ceremonies.

A primary goal of the FVVC is to sustain a Veterans Emergency Fund that serves veterans who are in need of emergency financial assistance in Outagamie, Northern Winnebago, and Calumet counties. Applicants must provide a copy of a DD Form 214 showing honorable service and copies of bills for consideration. Assistance is paid directly to creditors. 100% of donations to the Veterans Emergency Fund go directly to our local veterans. The FVVC works with the County Veterans Service Offices to determine eligibility of applicants for financial assistance.
