AFAS 2019 Annual Report

HELPING AIRMEN

The Air Force Aid Society’s ability to provide support to Air Force families is made possible through contributions from Airmen and friends of the U.S. Air Force. 100 percent of those contributions is used to support the AFAS mission. There are a variety of ways to help AFAS help Airmen: AIR FORCE ASSISTANCE FUND Air Force Aid Society is one of four important Air Force charities that benefit from the annual Air Force Assistance Fund campaign. The AFAF campaign is run by the U.S. Air Force and includes solicitation on behalf of the Society. Air Force members can designate which charity will receive their donation and are encouraged to contribute through payroll deductions/ allotments. Revenue received from the AFAF campaign is the primary source of donation revenue to the Society and truly embodies the Airmen helping Airmen philosophy. DIRECT CONTRIBUTIONS Contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations – Air Force and civilian – are always accepted. Gifts can be made in the form of cash, check, credit card or direct debit. Gifts can be made online at www.afas.org or by contacting us at (703) 972-2650.
