AFSA, FOR WORTHY CHARITIES
“Taking care of our own” is not just a slogan with AFSA members; it is a core value.
AFSA members “take care of their own” by participating in the AFSA International Charities Programs. The charities consist of programs to which members and non-members can donate funds to help enhance the quality of life for enlisted Airmen and their families and to maintain the Airmen Memorial Building “monument” that stands as a tribute to Airmen of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Below is a synopsis of the programs.



AFSA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The AFSA has distributed over $879,100 dollars in scholarships. Air Force dependent children pursuing undergraduate degrees are eligible for scholarships. Each person pursuing a scholarship must have a valid sponsor. Sponsors must be enlisted members currently serving (active duty, Air National Guard or reserve), retired, or a veteran of the Air Force. The scholarships awarded are from $1,000 to $2,500 to students attending an accredited academic institution. The amount and total number of scholarships awarded are dependent upon funds available. In addition, AFSA conducts a program to financially help members with a valid need of assistance to enhance their income potential through formal education and/or training. The AEG program is designed for members to obtain effective education and/ or training to acquire improved marketable skills.

THE AIRMEN MEMORIAL BUILDING FUND

Built by AFSA members, the Airmen Memorial Building (AMB) is so named to represent and stand as a living monument to not one, but to all enlisted Airmen. The AMB houses the Air Force Sergeants Association International Headquarters, The Enlisted Foundation and the Airmen Memorial Foundation.  DC Office. Donations help ensure this enlisted memorial is maintained and operated in a manner in which all Airmen can be proud.
