American Legion National Commander Mike Helm’s fundraising goal during his year-long tenure as national commander is to raise $4 million in Legion family charity program donations.

Donations will support The American Legion’s six charities: Operation Comfort Warriors, Legacy Scholarship Fund, National Emergency Fund, Child Welfare Foundation, Endowment Fund and Soldier’s Wish. Several Auxiliary charities are also a part of Helm’s $4 million fundraising goal, including the Emergency Fund, Spirit of Youth Scholarship Fund, Children of Warriors National President’s Workshop and American Legion Auxiliary Foundation.

Helm is rewarding those who make a donation to American Legion Charities with his “Stay On Course” fundraising pin.

A pin will be awarded to any individual who donates $100 or more to American Legion Charities. And three pins will be awarded to any Legion post, Auxiliary unit, Sons of The American Legion squadron or Legion Riders chapter who donates $500 or more to American Legion Charities.
