Fighter Country Foundation (FCF), established in 2006, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, that promotes programs and services at Luke Air Force Base that aid, support and honor Airmen and their families in need. Many bases have experienced budget reductions of 40% or more which eliminates funding for many events and human service programs. FCF has made a significant impact on the lives of servicemen and women with their support and promotion of events and programs that aid Luke Air Force Base. Some of these programs include: Airmen Against Drunk Driving (AADD), Unit Spouse and Family Support Fund and Operation Thunderbox. Please make a donation today.
Last year’s inaugural Patriot Day Celebration proved to be very successful with more than 1,100 citizens gathering to celebrate our heroes, their families and to salute our fallen soldiers. Approximately 1,200 blankets were collected for refugees and war torn Afghan delivered by signature sponsor, American Airlines. We were very fortunate to have 40 local and national corporations donate 85% of the budget in funds and in-kind support. Fumar Cigars has donated more than 250,000 cigars to soldiers over the past five years.
Our goal is even greater this year and we need your support on our sponsorship team to help make the donation to Fighter Country Foundation significant. Sponsorships are offered from $5,000 to $225, giving your company prominent visibility and recognition.
We hope you’ll decide to “Join the Troops” and be a member of our sponsorship team. If you have any questions, please contact us.
