About The AFF
The Armed Forces Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guardsmen, Reservists, military families, and veterans. The AFF returns 95 cents of every dollar raised to service members and their families through our programs. Since 2001, the AFF has provided more than $75 million in assistance by covering travel, hotel rooms, home mortgages, car payments and everyday bills for families to be able to stay at their loved ones’ sides during treatment and recovery from wounds suffered during war. With the launch of our Help Save Our Troops campaign, the AFF proactively educates Americans about the hidden wounds of war, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and advocates for those troops and veterans who have suffered these hidden wounds. The ultimate goal of Help Save Our Troops is to reduce military suicides. Through this campaign, the AFF provides counseling services for military families, including children, grants for therapy and addiction counseling, and runs a variety of recreation group therapy programs to boost morale amongst service members, veterans, and their families.
We are a Washington, DC based nonprofit organization committed to serving the members of our Armed Services and assisting them in their time of greatest need. Since 2001 the foundation has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for hotel bills and to offset the expenses of families visiting a loved one in the hospital. Programs offered through the foundation include the Family Assistance program, Family Bereavement assistance for surviving family members, hospital dinners, Troops to the Track with our partner NASCAR, Operation Caring Classroom – a national education initiative, School Counselor Program, and ProCamps. The staff of the foundation regularly visit with wounded troops at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to provide family support and show them our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. At the Armed Forces Foundation we treat the family as a whole and believe that service members and their families need support.
