Financial contributions to this fund, the distribution of which will only occur upon the approval of the State Adjutant in concert with the State Boys State Chairman, will be used to offset the “underwriting” costs of the American Legion as it continues to bring this “hands-on” five-day experience in American democratic methods to Michigan’s high school students who will eventually be franchised voters a

nd/or well-versed public office candidates. Contributions to this fund will help ensure the Michigan American Legion’s ability to continue offering this program to the state’s young men at an affordable rate, just as it has since 1936.  Checks are made to the Michigan American Legion Foundation, place "Boys State" on the memo line.
