Wounded Warrior and Military Families (W2MF) Endowment Fund
The Wounded Warrior and Military Families (W2MF) Endowment Fund was established to provide financial assistance for wounded warriors, veterans and military families through community-based programs and outreach assistance. For donation requests, the Alamo AFCEA Chapter maintains criteria and an approval process to qualify and register individual or community-based programs for Endowment grants. Each charity will undergo an initial vetting process to determine basic eligibility and 501(c)3 status. Any charity selected to receive donations on an annually-programmed basis will also undergo an annual status review.
