AFFN Matching Grant Program

2018 AFFN Military Community Support Program History

The Armed Forces Financial Network® (AFFN®), in partnership with the Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) and the Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC), has proudly supported the Fisher House Foundation, and the individual Fisher Houses in Germany and the U.S., for the past 14 years.

The AFFN Military Community Support Program has generously given back to our U.S. Service Members and their families over $3,297,800 in direct support over the past decade. The AFFN Matching Grant Program is in the 15th year of giving at the local military installation and community level by AFFN, AMBA banks and DCUC credit unions.

Since 2004, AFFN, in partnership with AMBA banks and DCUC credit unions, has awarded more than 645 grants to support our military and civilian communities on a local level and on a global scale, directly benefiting military service members and their families worldwide.

The other component of the AFFN Military Community Support Program is the AFFN corporate contribution, made on behalf of all AFFN-participating AMBA banks and DCUC credit unions. For the past 15 years, the AFFN board of directors has unanimously approved the corporate contribution in direct support of military families staying at Fisher Houses in Germany and throughout the U.S.

Since 2005, 16,080 military families staying at Fisher Houses worldwide have received more than $804,000 in DeCA Certifichecks (2005, 2006) and AFFN Thank You Cards (2007-2018) from the AFFN Military Community Support Program. Every dollar distributed has proudly assisted military service members, veterans and/or military family members for care, comfort and food while staying at a Fisher House.

2018 AFFN Matching Grant Program

Over the past two decades, AFFN AMBA Banks and DCUC Credit Unions have provided support to our military community that so desperately needs and deserves our assistance, and AFFN is proud to be part of this mission.

For the 15th consecutive year, the AFFN board of directors has authorized a Matching Grant Program, which provides direct support to AFFN-participating banks and credit unions that determine the local need for supporting the troops, their families, and the U.S. military and defense communities, worldwide.

This program will allow a maximum matching grant up to $1,500 per Participant. Since funds for this program are limited, we request only one application per AFFN Participant. Funds will be awarded (once qualified and approved) on a first come, first serve basis.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this program, please do not hesitate to contact John Broda, AFFN President and CEO, at 201.553.6824, or john.broda@affn.org.
