What is the Arizona Veterans' Donation Fund?
The Arizona Veterans' Donation Fund, established in 1999 by the Arizona Legislature funds programs that benefit Veterans and their families throughout Arizona. Arizona State law specifies that tax-deductible donations to, and monies held in, this account can never revert to the State General Fund. The assets held in the account can only be used to benefit Veterans in the State of Arizona through small grants and large grants, each with their own documented application process.

How does the Fund help?
Through Small ($4,999.99 or less) and Large ($5,000.00-$75,000.00) Grants, each with their own application process, the VDF supports 501(c) charitable organizations who are providing projects/programs/events for the benefit of Arizona Veterans. Preferable to ADVS, a grantee has a primary mission of providing benefits to Arizona’s Veterans and the applicant supports, and is compatible with, ADVS’ objectives determined by the Director.
