Supporting Our Community
Many think of a Base Spouse’s club as a social organization that holds monthly lunches, and meets up for Bunko and Bowling… While that image is not false, it isn’t the entire picture. Raising funds to be distributed throughout the local and national military community is the underlying purpose of our non-profit club.
Funds are raised primarily through our Base Thrift Shop and supplemented through events such as Trivia Night, Craft Bazaar and Auction for Education.
Funds are distributed two ways:
In the past funds have been granted to the following organizations: The USO, LRAFB First Sergeant’s Fund, Fischer House, The Base Library, The Base Youth Center, The AF Ball, Scout Troops, Care Caps, area schools, and many more. The common thread is that all organizations in some way serve the local or greater military community. To make a welfare request, please put your appeal in writing (e-mail or letter.)
Be sure that you cover:
· WHAT will be done with the money,
· WHO will benefit from funds,
· WHEN and how much money is needed,
· HOW many military members, families, children will be assisted,
· WHERE you can be reached for further questions.
*Request from educators need to be accompanied with the following form.
