AMERICAN LEGION POST 416 FOUNDATION

Finally, after talking about this for almost 5 years, San Dieguito American Legion Post 416 has a 501(c) 3 nonprofit, public charity, Foundation. The Foundation is in "Good Standing" and registered with the Secretary of the State of California. 

We are in the process of retaining a Non-Profit Attorney recommended by our accountant to oversee the legal aspects of the foundation.

Big Shoutout and Congratulations to the new Board of Directors for the Foundation, Ralph Bettencourt, Alan Lerchbacker and Attorney Bob Casey.

Attorney Bob Casey brings his experience with fundraising and help raise $1,000,000 for the Oceanside "Y" and he excited to be a part of our Post "Capital Campaign" to raise the funds to Remodel the Post.
