Helping Airmen and Guardians

The Air Force Aid Society’s ability to provide support is made possible through generous contributions from your fellow Airmen, Guardians, and friends of service members. 100% of every individual contribution is used to help Airmen and Guardians. Your gift can have a tremendous impact on the lives of Air Force and Space Force families.

There When You Need Us

Incorporated in 1942, The Air Force Aid Society continues to meet the unique needs of Airmen and Guardians.

The more you are able to donate, the more we are able to help!

How We Help Airmen and Guardians


When unexpected emergencies arise, there is a financial need and help is needed, AFAS provides no-interest loans and/or grants to help meet immediate needs and make a positive step towards a lasting financial solution.


AFAS education grants, loans and scholarships are available to dependent children or spouses of Airmen and Guardians, both active duty and retired.


AFAS understands the challenges that come with active duty military life, from deployments to PCSs, and offers targeted community programs to help with such things as child care, car upkeep and spouse employment education.


The USAF takes care of its own. Many Airmen and Guardians learn how AFAS can help through referrals from Commanders, First Sergeants and Supervisors. This resource guide was developed to help this key group of leaders counsel their Airmen and Guardians on support options.

Air Force Aid Society – Helping Airmen & Guardians

Incorporated in 1942, AFAS embodies the great 5-Star General Henry “Hap” Arnold’s vision of an organization that supports Airmen, Guardians, and their families.

97% of AFAS Emergency Financial Assistance was provided to the Total Force (Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Airmen and Guardians), and 3% to retirees and widows.
