Daleville, Ala. (June 14, 2017) — Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union (AACFCU) presented a donation of $16,000 to Fort Rucker’s Army Emergency Relief (AER) Fund at the 2017 AER Campaign Closing Ceremony on May 31. Funds were primarily raised from AACFCU’s Annual Golf Tournament held each year at Silver Wings Golf Course at Fort Rucker. All proceeds from the golf tournament were donated to AER.

AER is the Army’s own emergency financial assistance program dedicated to helping active and retired soldiers when there is a vital need. Fort Rucker’s AER campaign raised over $130,000 and will provide loans and grants to soldiers, retirees, family members and survivors.

The $16,000 donation included a matching grant of $1,500 from the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN). AACFCU has been fortunate to receive matching grants from AFFN for the past nine years. AFFN is an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Network founded in 1985, co-owned by The Defense Credit Union Council and The Association of Military Banks of America, serving more than 353 defense credit unions and military banks and 93 million cardholders at over 500,000 ATMs and 2.3 million merchant/retail locations globally. To learn more about AFFN, please visit www.AFFN.org.
