Your Support Matters

The ASYMCA of Alaska is not funded by the DoD. We partner with the local community to build a network of support that enhances the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind, and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life.

Trust is Earned

The Armed Services YMCA exists to make military life easier for junior enlisted military personnel and their families. We have 34 branches and affiliates, supporting 59 of our Nation’s largest military installations across the country. Offering low and no cost programming, the ASYMCA serves more than 500,000 troops and their families each year with the help of more than 10,000 volunteers.

In Alaska, up to 3,500 troops are expected to deploy in the next year alone. In addition to deployments, military service demands long and unpredictable hours, field training and exercises, and temporary duty assignments, which further burden service members and their families. There is no better time to support our troops and no more practical way than through the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska. The ASYMCA maintains an ‘A’ Rating from Charity Watch and we are a recipient of the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence Award. Additionally, Charity Navigator has identified us as a four-star charity that consistently exceeds industry standards in financial transparency and accountability. Your support will greatly enhance the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska’s ability to provide programs and services that directly improve the quality of life for our military and their loved ones in Alaska.
