The goal the Department Membership Program is to promote membership growth in the Department of Michigan.  This includes retention of existing members, re-engaging delinquent and former members and recruiting new members.


Opportunities exist for membership growth through Community Involvement through our various Community Service, Americanism and Youth Activity programs. We need to be pro-active when it comes to recruiting new members and retaining current members. Don’t rely on people to join and renew on their own. Reach out and encourage them.

The VFW Legacy Life Membership Program is an excellent way for every Life Member to leave a perpetual legacy of their military service and VFW membership and provide for financial resources for their Post, the Department and the National organization.  By making a one-time purchase of a Legacy Life Membership at either the Bronze ($400), Silver ($800), or Gold ($1200) level your Post, Department and National will each receive an annual return on your investment in the future of the VFW.   Attached is a brochure that explains the Legacy Life Membership program and the additional member benefits you receive with your investment.
