AMVETS National Headquarters

AMVETS National Headquarters is located in Lanham, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C. AMVETS’ operations worldwide are administered through the Office of the National Commander and six departments: administrative, finance, human resources, legislative, membership, programs, communications and service. The bulk of the organization’s work with veterans and communities is focused in three of these—legislative, programs and service. We also have our posts and departments organized by state with websites and e-mail addresses listed for those that have them. Finally, listed below are our affiliate organizations. Not all of them have websites, but those that do, we invite you to visit.

AMVETS National Service Foundation

The National Service Foundation (oftentimes referred to as simply “the Foundation”) is the fund-raising arm of AMVETS. A corporate subsidiary of the parent organization, it funds a variety of programs benefiting America’s veterans and their communities. Among them is the National Service Officer Program, the Memorial Carillon Program, the Americanism Program, AMVETS scholarships, youth programs and hospital projects.
