The Community Service reporting year is now in sync with National and started on 1 July 2022 and will continue through 30 June 2023.


The VFW and its Auxiliary’s ability to impact veterans, youth, patriotism, civic pride, volunteerism and just about anything you can name is dependent upon your Post’s being recognized as a caring and involved participant in the community.  All of the great deeds performed by comrades across South Carolina should be recognized and accounted for.

For this reason, Community Service reporting is an important requirement of every Post in the Department of South Carolina.  Community service is also part of the criteria for All State recognition.

Reporting your Community Service activities:

In this Department, we use our  website to report activities electronically.  Each Post should submit reports using our online report form as activities are completed or at least monthly AND ONLY by the Commander’s designated individual.  Please DO NOT wait until the end of the reporting year to report activities. Instructions for individual comrades are included below.


Here are simple instructions for online reporting for the Commander’s reporting designee:

1.    Go to

2.   Log into "Members Only” using your Member # as Username and last name as Password

3.   Click on the link labeled "Community Service Reporting” and fill out the information for EACH ACTIVITY.  All your AUXILIARY numbers should be combined at the Post and reported here

4.   After you submit, you'll receive an email with your report details


IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOUR REPORTS INCLUDE AN EXPLANATION OF HOW THE ACTIVITY MEETS THE CRITERIA FOR THE CATEGORY YOU ARE REPORTING!  Incomplete reports will not be approved and will be returned for revision.   Once reports are clarified, the chairman will approve the report and the results will be added to the Department’s Report Card.


Note: You may combine reports for similar activities.  For example, a comrade volunteers at the local food bank every Wednesday during the month for 2 hours. Submit ONE REPORT for one comrade for 8 HOURS (4 Wednesdays) and include the dates in the description block of the online report form.


Once your online reports are approved, you will find the report totals for your Post on the Department's Report Card.

Community Service Report forms at your Post.

It’s recommended that you maintain a folder or binder at your Post for individual comrades to pick up and complete the INDIVIDUAL REPORT FORMS for COMRADES. These forms can be collected by the Commander’s designated Community Service representative and then submitted monthly using the online report system.  Click on this blue link to download the Individual Report form:

National Outstanding Community Service Post

On the Department's dashboard are the report totals for each post for Community Service, Americanism, Legislative, Youth Activities, Safety, & Veterans and Military Support.
Everyone can also see the Total Hours, Members Total, and Money Total for each post.

  • First Criteria:  The Outstanding Post MUST HAVE AT LEAST one report in EACH of the six Community Service Categories listed above.

  • Second Criteria:  Post MUST BE NOMINATED by it's District Commander no later than 23 April.  (This way, the Chain of Command is involved in the selection process and this criteria will narrow the selections down to 8 Posts for further consideration. It will also give us time to analyze the data for each of the nominations and select the winner.)

  • Third Criteria:  Of the 8 Posts nominated by their District Commanders, the Department Commander will select the most Outstanding Community Service Post based on the following totals as recorded on the website AS OF 23 APRIL OF EACH YEAR  ( 1 week before the deadline to National) . 
How award is selected by the Department Commander. 

A.  Total Hours given in service to the Community is probably the most important selection criteria.

B.  Members Total % of Post population.  Take the total number of MEMBERS reported in all Community Service reports divided by the total number of members in that Post.  (This criteria will demonstrate how well the Post Commander is able to motivate comrades to serve their community).  

C.  Total Amount of Dollars Raised/Donated as of 23 April of each year.
