Timing Your Gift
For every $1 donated to AFAS, the Air Force Aid Society provides $3 toward emergency help, college scholarships and grants, With these funds, AFAS was able to help over 27,000 Airmen and their families last year alone. Of these funds, 93% of AFAS Emergency Financial Assistance was provided to the Total Force (Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Airmen), with the remaining funds helping Air Force retired and widowed.
