The Arizona Coalition for Military Families and our partner organizations have established a “Standing in the Gap” fund focused on meeting critical needs for service members, veterans and family members who do not qualify for existing financial assistance programs.

How to give

Contribute by check to:

Empowerment Systems, Inc.

Apache Junction, AZ 85120

Please write “ACMF Gap Fund” on the check.

The fund is administered by the Arizona Coalition for Military Families on behalf of our public and private sector partner organizations. The fiscal sponsor for the fund is Empowerment Systems, Inc., an Arizona nonprofit and 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.

Note: Donors may designate funds specifically to the National Guard Relief Fund (NGRF) to provide assistance for soldiers and airmen of the Arizona National Guard. Empowerment Systems, Inc., is also the fiscal sponsor for the NGRF.

Why do we need this fund?

While there are great programs and resources in Arizona that meet critical needs every day, unfortunately there are also strict eligibility guidelines for most of those programs. On a regular basis, partner organizations in our community work with service members, veterans and family members who do not qualify for any of the existing programs but have needs for financial assistance. This fund will address the needs of those who are currently falling through the cracks.

How was the fund established?

The Arizona Coalition for Military Families is a grantee of Newman’s Own Foundation. As a grantee, we were invited to participate in the “Honoring Those Who Serve” fundraising challenge in 2013. We continue to accept donations for the Standing in the Gap Fund and the National Guard Relief Fund.


Thank you for your interest and support!
