The Veterans Emergency Assistance Program (“VEAP”)  was established by the Tustin American Legion Post 227 in 2018. The purpose of the VEAP  program is to provide local area U.S. Veterans (“Requestors”) with financial assistance for unforeseen, temporary emergencies in the event that funding from other sources  may not be easily obtained or readily available. Requestors typically come to us from outside  referrals. Examples of potential referral sources are the Tierney Center for Veteran Services,  the Tustin Police Department, the Tustin Senior Center, the Tustin Community Foundation, the  Tustin Chamber of Commerce, the Orange County Rescue Mission / Tustin Veterans Outpost,  and other local community services organizations. 

We raise the funds to make the VEAP program viable through a variety of sources including  Corporate and Individual Donors, Community Fundraisers and our highly successful annual  American Legion Golf Tournament.  

COVID-19 Update: While the “Age of COVID” has rendered us unable to conduct our  8th annual Fundraiser/Golf Tournament in 2020, the needs of our veteran community  press on and we have adapted accordingly. Therefore, Tustin American Legion Post  227 is pleased to announce our 2020 Fall VEAP Fundraiser Campaign! 

2020 Fall VEAP Fundraiser Campaign  

Our 2020 Fall VEAP Fundraiser Campaign will involve four “channels” to funnel donations into  our VEAP program. 100% of the net proceeds of the 2020 Fall VEAP Fundraiser Campaign  will be directed to Veteran beneficiaries of the program.
