How to start a new purple heart chapter


The Department Commander makes the decision to start a new chapter, Please contact Department Commander 507-236-4653 . Once we receive the Department Commander’s written approval, a Chapter Starter Kit will be sent (please specify whether emailed or snail mailed).

Once you are ready to start submitting new members or transfers, please contact us and we will start the following process:

  1. Select an available number for the new chapter.  When a number is assigned, applications can be sent to Headquarters and assigned to the new chapter.
  2. Notify us if you, or someone else, are willing to be the “Organizer” for the new chapter.  This person would need to sign and return a Transfer Request form for the new chapter and verify phone number and/or email address for the website.
  3. When at least 12 members have signed up, the Application for Charter can be submitted.  (The Application must be signed by the Department Commander.)  Once the new chapter is chartered, the chapter may then apply for the EIN.

We appreciate the interest in starting a new chapter and are available to help if you have any questions or need assistance.

Thank you.  Have a wonderful day.  ​Anne – ​
