News from Our Partners: Air Force Assistance Fund Campaign – 50 Years Of Caring

The four official charities of the Department of the Air Force care for Airmen and Guardians across the Air & Space Force family spectrum…active, guard, reserve, retired, and surviving spouses of retirees. All have been impacted by the coronavirus health crisis, inflation and economic uncertainties. If you are, or know of a fellow Airman, Guardian, or a family member in need, you can rely on the assistance given by the four official charities of the Department of the Air Force.

To our faithful retirees who give to the AFAF Campaign each year, we thank you! We invite you to get to know your four official charities of the Department of the Air Force by visiting their web sites below. Learn what they’re doing to impact the lives of our Airmen, Guardians, and their families every day.

Air Force Enlisted Village 
General & Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation
Air Force Villages Charitable Foundation
Air Force Aid Society
Our historic “Commitment to Caring” theme and long-standing principle of “taking care of our own” has been made a reality by you over the years, and you’re still leading today’s Airmen and Guardians by example! This coming Spring, we will be celebrating our golden anniversary for the AFAF Campaign…50 Years of Caring begins on 27 February 2023!

Great news…The days of a limited window during Spring Time to give to these four worthy charities are gone!  Now, thanks to our e-Giving options, donors can give contributions year-round. You can also now join in on the fun of raising money for the four official charities of the Air Force Assistance Fund by registering for your own free fundraising page! Head over to https://secure.qgiv.com/event/afaf and click the “Find a Base Page” button to select your favorite Base. Scroll down the base page to your favorite Unit (maybe the one you retired from…or the favorite base and unit of your career). Once you get to the squadron’s “Team” page, you can click the “Join My Team (Unit/Squadron)” button to register for your own AFAF fundraising page, or just click the “Donate Now” button to give your gift. You can also opt to donate via Text-to-Donate by texting AFAF to 50155. 

And speaking of giving…there’s more great news: We’ve heard your request for not having to renew donation processing on an annual basis! Now, through our e-Giving portal (including the Text-to-Donate option), you can multiply the impact of your gift, while spreading out the cost, by setting up a monthly recurring donation that won’t end after 12 months and require annual renewal. Just set up an account on the donation page and you’re in full control! If at any time you need assistance, please contact us at usaf.fundraising@us.af.mil for help.

If you prefer to donate by payroll deduction, check or money order, download the donation form located at https://www.afassistancefund.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/AF2561_2021_ver20210901-static-Retiree-Civ.pdf. Please fill in the form on your computer before printing, then save and print. By mailing in the donation form, you can choose to give by allotment from your retired pay for 12 months beginning 1 July 2023, or by sending a check or money order of any amount to:
                                         *Please don’t send cash in the mail.

Again, on behalf of the four charities, and on behalf of the thousands of our Fellow Airmen, Guardians and families you’ve impacted – thank you!
