Save 4 Vets
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)
To uphold the principles of the Constitution of the United States.
To promote the goals and objectives of all veteran organizations for the common good; and the welfare of active and veteran personnel of all the Uniformed Services, as well as their dependents and survivors.
To foster and support the exchange of information and ideas among all veteran organizations in order to provide better service to veterans and their families.
The Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. (FVVC) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, created as a non-profit in September, 2009. 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 facilitates a central forum within the Fox Valley area to disseminate veteran information amongst veteran organizations, and support veteran activities for the common good and welfare of all veterans. Additionally, the organization supports the Outagamie County Veterans Memorial and presents the Outagamie County annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies.
One of the primary goals of the FVVC is to sustain the Veterans Emergency Fund which serves veterans and their immediate family (spouse, un-remarried surviving spouse, child, or stepchild) who are in need of emergency financial assistance in Outagamie County, Northern Winnebago County, and Calumet County. Proper documentation must be provided, including 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 has a Veterans Emergency Fund Committee that works with the County Veterans Service Offices to determine eligibility of applicants for financial assistance.
