AFFN Matching Grant Program
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 United States for nearly two decades.
The AFFN Military Community Support Program has generously given back to the troops and their families over $4,212,500 in direct support. The AFFN Matching Grant Program is in its 18th 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 840 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 18 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, 22,232 military families staying at Fisher Houses worldwide have received over $1,111,600 in DeCA Certifichecks (2005, 2006) and AFFN Thank You Cards (2007-2020) from the AFFN Military Community Support Program. Every dollar distributed has assisted military service members, veterans, and/or military family members for care, comfort and food while staying at a Fisher House.
Once again this year, AFFN in partnership with the Fisher House Foundation will support each military family member attending the Department of Defense “Warrior Games.” AFFN will donate $50.00 AFFN Thank You Cards for every hero/warrior who is traveling to compete to assist with defraying travel-related costs.
2021 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.
AFFN is proud to support AFFN participating AMBA Banks and DCUC Credit Unions in their mission to provide support to the troops, their families and the U.S. military and defense communities worldwide.
For the 18th 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 troops and their families in U.S. military communities worldwide.
This program will allow a maximum matching grant up to $1,500 per Participant. Funds for this program are limited. Therefore, we request only one application per AFFN participant. Funds will be awarded (once qualified and approved) on a first come, first served basis.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this program, please do not hesitate to contact, John Broda, AFFN president and CEO, at 973-600-7450, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
