Since 2003, the Armed Forces Reserve Family Assistance Fund has supported families of deployed Reservists who face short-term financial needs and other emergencies. Whether it’s a Blue-Star flag, a bus ride home for Thanksgiving, or fixing a car that suddenly won’t start, the Armed Forces Reserve Family Assistance Fund is dedicated to helping, in our small way, the families of soldiers who are deployed serving their country, and us.
The Armed Forces Reserve Family Assistance Fund organizes an annual golf tournament at the United States Military Academy at West Point, as well as other fundraising and educational events. AFRFAF uses its fundraising proceeds to assist families of Reservists called up to active duty survive the small everyday emergencies occasioned by the absence of a spouse, parent or other family member. AFRFAF’s mission is to make money or manpower available to active-duty Reserve families to fix boilers, patch leaky roofs, drive a mom to a doctor’s appointment, or any one of a thousand different little things the family would normally rely on the deployed soldier to do, or provide for.
The Armed Forces Reserve Family Assistance Fund is a registered not-for-profit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to AFRFAF are tax deductible to the full extent that they exceed the value of any goods and services received and as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
