The LeMay Foundation awards grants to enlisted and officer retirees’ surviving spouses. We respond because we believe they are entitled to a dignified lifestyle and it is a privilege to serve them as they served along with their spouses.
We are here for these spouses who supported their families during active duty service and through their retirement years. Last year, we benefited nearly $450,000 to these spouses. We provide monthly grants to augment incomes that fall below the poverty line. One-time grants are also available to alleviate with unexpected bills such as, dental work, medical and prescription needs, rent or mortgage delinquencies, and minor home repairs. We continue to give our recipients gifts of $100 at Christmas, $50 for Thanksgiving and $100 gift for each widow in honor of their spouses for Memorial Day. In addition, we give a monetary gift for their birthday. Our grants are awarded without fanfare, like a gift to a beloved family member.
When we can help a spouse stay in their home, near their church and friends, we stay true to the vision of our founders, General and Mrs. Curtis LeMay. When you give to the Air Force Assistance Fund, you provide a future for them.
