Our annual dues are $10.00, however; we collect dues to support the American Legion Legacy fund which tries to ensure higher education is a possibility for children whose parents lost their lives while serving our country. Beginning with the 2017 award year, the American Legion expanded the scholarship to include children of VA-rated, post-9/11 veterans with a combined disability rating of 50 percent or higher. Your contributions to the Legacy Fund ARE tax deductible, so please give generously.
