Join us in celebrating the United States Air Force’s 76th birthday with our longtime supporter, First Command, who will match donations up to $25k, helping those who serve our nation.
The Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) serves as a lifeline to Airmen, Guardians, and their families in times of need. Your generous donations have provided critical support and made a significant difference in the lives of those who serve our nation.
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.
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 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.
RESOURCES FOR REFERRING LEADERS
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.
Over 17,000 individual assists to Air Force and Space Force families were facilitated.
