The Post and Auxiliary actively support the Veterans, Youth, and Civic needs of our local area and help with State and National needs as they arise. Several of these are identified below. Gaming is the primary funding for these. However, our Post and its members support other activities such as the annual pre-Forth of July Barn Dance in Monument. The post is a registered Charitable Organization and donations are appreciated. Receipts for your donations in cash or goods to the Post are available for your use with taxes as appropriate.

Initial funding support is projected/established annually in the Post budget. All funding requests, budgeted and new, are then reviewed each month in the Executive Committee meeting.

Request forms may be picked up and dropped off at the Post Home, the Depot Restaurant in Palmer Lake.
