Achieve Dreams

The American Legion Riders, Department of California, a 501(c)19 wartime veterans service organization that is working for the support of veteran’s issues, their families, and our communities. Currently The American Legion Riders supports The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which provides college scholarships the children of service members who were killed in action or combat wounded while serving this great nation.

Donations will bring us closer to our goal of $200,000.  Many business and community leaders are on board as well as hundreds of individuals. Our veterans and communities are clearly excited and eager to see this succeed.  You can be a part of that excitement by supporting our veterans and their families with your donation.  We are happy to acknowledge donations on our website and at our numerous events throughout the state of California.

Our organization is dedicated to the process of making this happen but we need your help.
For every $20,000 donated, we are able to provide one of these children a one-year college scholarship.  We are also one of the only scholarship programs which provides scholarships for up to six years, allowing these children to obtain a Masters Degree.
