Air Force Aide Society

The Air Force Aid Society, a private non-profit organization, supports the mission of the Air Force by relieving financial distress of Air Force members and their families, assisting with education goals and improving quality of life through proactive programs.
When unexpected emergencies arise, there is a financial need and help is needed, AFAS provides no-interest loans and 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 Air Force life, from deployments to PCSs, and offers targeted community programs to help with such things as child care, car upkeep and spouse employment education.



Dependent children and spouses of active duty and retired Airmen can work towards their dreams of a college degree with AFAS education grants, loans and scholarships.


All requests for Air Force Aid Society assistance are handled at AFAS sections located at Air Force bases around the world.  In the event there is no Air Force base in your area, other Military Relief Societies and/or Red Cross stations can assist.
