AFFN Receives Fisher House Patriot Award

The Fisher House Foundation (The Fisher House) — Helping Military Families — recently bestowed the “Fisher House Patriot Award” on the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN).

The Fisher House Patriot Award recognizes extraordinary efforts supporting the quality of life of “our greatest national treasure – our military service men and women and their loved ones.”

“I was proud to accept this award on behalf of our generous board of directors, our DCUC Credit Union and AMBA Bank Partners, and our dedicated and loyal AFFN Team Members who are inspired by the Fisher House Foundation, Fisher House Managers, and volunteers who support our U.S. Service Members, Veterans, and Military Families every day worldwide,” said John M. Broda, AFFN’s President & CEO.

AFFN and our AMBA Bank and DCUC Credit Union Partners have given back over $1M to date, serving nearly 19,000 military members and their families, through the AFFN THANK YOU Card Program! 

The AFFN Military Community Support Program has donated over $3.6M directly to our U.S. Service Members, Veterans, and Military Families at a local level and on a global scale since 2004.

A gracious THANK YOU to the Fisher House Foundation for our unique partnership in giving, nearly two decades in the making. People Helping People!
