Air Force Assistance Fund kicks off March 26

By Danielle Knight 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The 2018 Air Force Assistance Fund Campaign at Joint Base San Antonio kicks off March 26 and will run until May 4.

Unit Air Force Assistance Fund project officers will be making contact with active-duty personnel about the program. Other personnel wishing to make a donation should contact their unit AFAF project officers for more information.

The goal for this year’s Air Force Assistance Fund is 100 percent contact with the 22,616 eligible personnel across Joint Base San Antonio and a fundraising goal of $342,293 across all installations and mission partners.

Each year, there is an effort through the entire Air Force to raise money for four Air Force charities - The Air Force Aid Society, Air Force Enlisted Village, Blue Skies of Texas (formerly Air Force Villages Charitable Foundation), and the General and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation.

The Air Force Aid Society provides Airmen and their families worldwide with emergency financial assistance, education assistance and various base-level community enhancement programs.


The Air Force Enlisted Village supports Teresa Village in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and Bob Hope Village in Shalimar, Florida, near Eglin Air Force Base. The fund provides homes and financial assistance to retired enlisted members' widows and widowers who are 55 and older. It also supports Hawthorn House in Shalimar which provides assisted living for residents, including 24-hour nursing care.


Blue Skies of Texas (formerly Air Force Village) has a core charitable mission to care for retired Air Force officers and their spouses, widows or widowers and family members. Communities are located in San Antonio. The new name “Blue Skies of Texas” celebrates the Air Force heritage.


The General and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation provides rent and financial assistance to widows and widowers of officer and enlisted retirees in their homes and communities through financial grants of assistance.
