Who We Are
The Fort Bragg Area Community Foundation (FBACF) is a non-profit charitable organization established to provide financial assistance to benefit the Fort Bragg community. FBACF is staffed entirely by volunteers. We are military spouses, miltiary retirees, and civilians.
FBACF is governed by an Executive Board that meets the second Thursday of each month. FBACF's General Membership meets on a quarterly basis. We invite you to attend a quarterly General Membership meeting to learn more about FBACF and how we help our military family members in need.
What We Do
FBACF provides financial assistance in the form of grants to:
- Active duty military personnel and their spouses assigned to Fort Bragg and Pope AFB
- DoD civilians employed at Fort Bragg and Pope AFB
- Military retirees and their spouses residing within 50 miles of post
- Agencies providing direct support to Fort Bragg Soldiers and Families
- Individuals and organizations outside these categories must provide a direct relationship to Fort Bragg to be considered for a grant
FBACF will only consider cases where there is a genuine need that cannot be met through other Fort Bragg traditional sources (AER, Chaplains' Funds, Red Cross, etc.) and that is not the result of financial mismanagement.
How to Request Assistance
Note: All FBACF Grant requests by individuals MUST go through Army Emergency Relief (AER). We cannot consider you for a grant if you do not go though AER first—even if you are not eligible for AER assistance.
FBACF can be reached 24/7 through our answering service (910-583-1709). Please leave your name, work and alternate phone numbers. Your inquiry should be followed up within one day.
All personal information is held in strict confidence. The name of the person/persons requesting assistance is known only to AER and the Second Vice President. Your request will be assigned a case number to identify you.
Obtain and complete FBACF's Financial Assistance Form and submit all supporting documentation (copies of bills, receipts, LES, letters from unit commanders, etc.) to FBACF's Second Vice President via AER. Failure to submit adequate supporting documentation will result in a denial of your grant request. Please use our checklist to help you through the process.
Complete Agency/Organization Unmet Needs Application and submit directly to FBACF's Second Vice President.
Where We Get our Funding
We are funded entirely by donations from the community via grants, gifts, and Combined Federal Campaign contributions.
