The Armed Services YMCA of Alaska exists to make military life easier for military service members and their families. We count on the generosity of our donors to help us provide programs that nurture life and well-being among the families of those serving in our military. Contributions to the ASYMCA of Alaska are deeply appreciated and will make a huge impact on the lives of military families.

We are one of the highest-rated military charities nationwide, according to the American Institute of Philanthropy and Charity Navigator.

The ASYMCA is proud of our fiscal responsibility, and that .90 of every dollar donated goes directly to support programs. In 2012, we were designated as a top-rated charity by CharityWatch, and for the 7th consecutive year received the highest rating from Charity Navigator.  Rest assured that your donation will be used in the most effective and economical way ensuring the highest support for our service members and their families.

$25 provides a military mother with childcare at the JBER or Bassett Army Hospital while she attends to her healthcare needs.
