The AMVETS Department of Illinois was founded in 1945, and has grown to be one of the largest AMVETS chapters. Within our AMVETS family, Illinois also has the Illinois AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, Sons of AMVETS and Sad Sacks. Our members and supporters are almost 10,000 strong and spread out from top to bottom of Illinois, with the sole purpose of helping veterans, their families and their communities.
The Illinois AMVETS Service Foundation is supported by donations collected from discarded household goods, bequests, corporate giving, and personal donations. These fundraising efforts are vital in AMVETS doing their best to support Veterans and their surrounding communities.
The foundation board primarily consists of Past Commanders of the AMVETS Department of Illinois, with the exception of three trustees. The Foundation Directors are all experienced AMVETS members and are from all over the State of Illinois. These members combine diverse backgrounds and savvy business intellect to provide the best insight on any number of issues.
