Indiana National Guard Relief Fund
Giving Indiana Soldiers and their families a helping hand
With all of the mobilizations going on in the military these days, it's becoming increasingly more difficult for families to meet the challenges that come with these extended periods of separation. The Indiana National Guard Relief Fund, Inc., has provided financial grants to Indiana Soldiers and their families that have encountered difficult situations due to Soldiers being mobilized or in times of financial hardship.
Started in 2003 in conjunction with the Adjutant General of Indiana, The Indiana National Guard Relief Fund is a private, non-profit, tax exempt corporation.
It is not an Army or Department of Defense organization. Funds are not for use by the Army and Government can not dictate the use of funds. Our Mission is accomplished by giving funds to service members and their families for limited financial relief.
