Programs

American Legion Child Welfare Foundation - Our foremost philanthropic priority is to provide other nonprofit organizations with a means to educate the public about the needs of children across this nation.

Children's Miracle Network - The American Legion's established partnership with Children's Miracle Network (CMN), seeks to enhance its efforts to provide quality health services to children.

American Legion Scholarship Programs - Education is the cornerstone upon which the future of this nation is built. Where there are good schools, we find good citizens. In fact, education is the first requisite of good citizenship. Reliable studies show many American students are unaware of all the financial assistance available to them in pursuit of higher education. The American Legion's Scholarship Programs were created to fill that void, and to promote and provide programs that encourage children to make use of their education opportunities.

National Emergency Fund - Legion Family Members helping Legion Family Members

Legion Baseball - Since 1925, The American Legion has sponsored a nationwide youth baseball program. During these past seven decades, millions of young players have enjoyed playing baseball. The American Legion and their 2.8 million members have raised millions of dollars each year for players to learn the importance of teamwork, discipline, leadership and good sportsmanship. The American Legion sponsors American Legion Baseball to give players an opportunity to develop their skills, personal fitness, leadership qualities and to have fun.  

Boys State - American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students. It is a participatory program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government.

Boys Nation - Two outstanding representatives from each of 48 Boys States are called upon to represent their state at American Legion Boys Nation in Washington, DC. It is here that the young leaders, who had excelled at their respective Boys States, are introduced to the structure and function of the federal government.

National Oratorical Contest - The purpose of The American Legionís National High School Oratorical Contest is to develop a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the Constitution of the United States on the part of high school students. Other objectives of the contest include the development of leadership qualities, the ability to think and speak clearly and intelligently, and the preparation for acceptance of the duties and responsibilities, the rights and privileges of American citizenship

Scouting - Support for the Boy Scout movement came at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country.  Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.

Junior Shooting Sports - The American Legion recognizes that guns are a part of sports and recreation in our society and strives to teach youngsters the proper use of firearms before accidents occur. Many local Posts sponsor Junior Shooting Clubs which provide training in gun safety and marksmanship for junior shooters. The Legion hosts an annual national air rifle tournament that draws more than 1,200 contestants annually.

Fourth Estate Award - The Fourth Estate Award is presented annually by The American Legion's National Public Relations Commission to an individual, publication or broadcast organization for outstanding achievement in the field of journalism. A $2,000 stipend accompanies the award to defray expenses of recipient accepting the award at The American Legion National Convention in August.
