The Jewish War Veterans of the USA Foundation (JWVF) was created in 2010 as a way to directly give back to the veteran community, to support American active duty military personnel, and those who were physically and mentally wounded as a result of their service. However, its ideals and standards align with the Jewish War Veterans of the USA.
JWVF focuses on helping veterans or active duty personnel go back to school after their service through the National Achievement Program. Over $5,000 in grants are awarded annually to applicants. The Foundation also offers a grant program for high school seniors who are direct descendants of members of the Jewish War Veterans. Several National Youth Achievement Program grants are awarded yearly at JWV’s Annual National Convention.
