Welcome from Director Erica Jeffries

Welcome to the Veterans Assistance Fund donation web site, which is run by the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs.  We have developed this site so that Illinois citizens can contribute to Veterans Cash Grants year-round, not just when the Vets Cash lottery ticket is sold in stores each November! 

All monies contributed via this Veterans Assistance Fund donation site will be granted by the Veterans Cash Grant Committee to help Illinois veterans in the following areas of need:  post-traumatic stress disorder, homelessness, long-term care, disability benefits, health insurance costs, and employment assistance.  Grants are awarded to qualifying public and non-profit organizations serving veterans directly in these areas.


We hope you will find this service convenient and easy to use. Thank you for your contribution to empower our veterans to thrive back here in Illinois as they did in uniform!
