Why Partner with the ACA?
Q: Why should your company partner with the Air Commando Association?
A: The Air Commando Association and it’s benevolent arm, the Air Commando Association Foundation are focused on taking care of America’s Air Commandos. Every loss, tragedy and injury is different and so are the needs, both immediate and long term, and the ACF's goal is to fill the gap between what is needed and what is provided. As circumstances dictate, the ACF's agile program provides immediate and critically needed support and financial assistance to our wounded Air Force Special Operators (this includes AFSOC members who enable mission success through support functions), as well as to their families, to include but not limited to: uncovered benevolent expenses, travel, lodging, medical rehabilitation and treatments not otherwise covered. Secondarily, our program supports other charitable organizations with similar objectives and provides four annual scholarships to children of Air Commandos. The ACF has given back nearly $200,000 to Air Commandos, their families and the Special Operations Community over the last several years. The ACF is a non-profit charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, so all donations are tax deductible. One of the unique things about the ACF is that 100% of the contributions that go into the ACF’s coffers goes directly back to Air Commandos and their families; the ACA covers 100% of the ACF’s overhead.
The ACA/ACF would very much like to partner with your organization to expand the opportunity for the ACA/ACF to help more of our in need Air Commandos. Our organization does not have deep coffers, so we’re currently exploring ways to gather increased momentum to broaden our ability to give back to this community of Air Force Airmen who have done so much for our beloved nation. We are not only focused on active duty Air Commandos, we also scoop up under ACA’s/ACF's charter our ANG and AFRC brothers and sisters and their families, as well as our Air Commando veterans and their families.
The ACA is a 501(c)19, Veterans Organization, and the ACF is a Section 501(c)(3), not-for-profit charitable organization; we do great things under both organizations.
