Strengthening Our Military Family      |      Armed Services YMCA Alaska


How to Help

Give Now

For over 150 years the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) has existed to Make Military Life Easier for our junior enlisted troops and their resilient families. These young heroes don’t get paid much, can barely afford the basics, and are voluntarily serving and sacrificing daily so we can enjoy our freedoms and way of life.

With shrinking defense budgets, troop and family programs are being cut at every military installation. In close partnership with local military leaders, the ASYMCA fills the highest priority gaps with low and no-cost programs and services including childcare, hospital assistance, counseling, emergency food and clothing, education and youth and teen programs. With the highest Charity Navigator rating (4-star) for 7 consecutive years, 90 cents of every donated dollar going direct to programs, and the help of more than 12,000 volunteers, the ASYMCA made military life easier for almost 500,000 troops and family members in 2012.

These young heroes deserve all the help we can possibly provide. With your help, we can help make military life easier.
