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, military retirees, and civilians.
FBACF is governed by an Executive Board and meets monthly. 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 community members in need. Upcoming meeting information can be found on our Facebook page.
What We Do
FBACF considers cases where there is a genuine need that cannot be met through other Fort Bragg traditional sources (AER, Chaplains' Funds, Red Cross, etc.) and the financial crisis is not the result of personal financial mismanagement.
FBACF provides financial assistance in the form of grants to:
• Active duty military personnel and their spouses assigned to Fort Bragg and Pope AAF
• DOD civilians employed at Fort Bragg and Pope AAF
• 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 Fort Bragg to be considered for a grant
How to Request Assistance
Note: All FBACF grant requests by individuals start the process at Army Emergency Relief (AER). If you are not eligible for AER assistance, they will help organize your application and pass it on to us.
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. Your request will be assigned a case number to identify you prior to going before the FBACF board.
Individuals: Obtain and complete FBACF's Financial Assistance Form (see forms links above) and submit all necessary 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 delay your grant request and may result in a denial. Please use our checklist to help you through the process.
