The LeMay Foundation was created by General LeMay in 1987 to provide assistance to widows of Air Force retirees. General and Mrs. LeMay wanted the assurance that the active duty servicemen, the retiree and their families are succored. We stay true to the vision of our founders by providing a comfortable solution for a spouse to stay in their home. Today, we strive to keep their mission alive.
Our duty is to keep these spouses in their homes where they supported their families during active duty and throughout their retirement years. We provide assistance with monthly grants for day to day living expenses. One-time relief is also available to compensate for unexpected expenses such as minor home repairs, medical and dental costs, prescription needs, moving fees, and mortgage or rent delinquencies. Last year, we provided over $473,400 in aid.
We strongly believe they are entitled to a respectable lifestyle and it is a privilege to serve them as they embraced the military life with their spouses. When you give to the Air Force Assistance Fund, you provide a future for them that honors their humble hearts.
